Keto Matcha Mint Bars
Prep 15m Cook - Additional 45m Ready In 1h
Servings 12 bars Calories 276.5

These bars are reminiscent of Thin Mints® in flavor. They’re bright and refreshing and full of fats but low in carbs. They actually come together very quickly! Store in refrigerator; these will soften/melt at room temperature. Consume or freeze within 24 hours to avoid losing the bright green color.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon stevia powder
  • 1 cup coconut butter, softened
  • 2 small ripe avocados
  • 3 tablespoons stevia powder
  • 1 tablespoon green tea powder (matcha)
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, warmed
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 6 drops liquid stevia

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. 2 Mix almond flour, butter, cocoa powder, and stevia powder together. Press mixture into the lined pan to form a crust. Freeze for 15 minutes while making the filling.
  3. 3 Combine coconut butter, avocados, stevia powder, matcha, peppermint extract, and vanilla extract in a bowl. Blend using an electric mixer until combined. Pour and spread filling onto the crust and freeze.
  4. 4 Mix coconut oil, cocoa powder, peppermint extract, and liquid stevia thoroughly. Spread topping over the chilled bars and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Reviews

  1. It was really rather good, except for the top layer, there wasn't enough of it, it doesn't harden very well, and it has very strange, zingy taste, almost sour. I scraped off half of it and it is really good though.
  2. I made this for my sister-in-law who has many allergies. It has a peculiar taste to it but it was definitely edible! It was a bit too minty so I would maybe decrease the amount of mint put in it next time but I may make this again sometime!
