Servings 16 bars



  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • ¼ cup macadamia nuts
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • ¾ cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • 2 cups raw cashews soaked in water overnight or at least 4 hours and drained* (see notes)
  • ½ cup coconut milk canned
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp vanilla bean paste
  • 4-5 passion fruit pulps
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup


  • Line an 8 x 8-inch pan with parchment paper and lightly grease with coconut oil.
  • To make the crust, add cashews, macadamia nuts, almond flour, shredded coconut, coconut oil, maple syrup, and salt in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Process until it forms a crumbly mixture. Press the crust evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • In the same food processor or blender, combine all the filling ingredients except the passionfruit pulps and 1 tbsp maple syrup. Process for 2-4 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Scrape down the sides if necessary. Once mixture is smooth, taste for sweetness and adjust if desired.
  • Pour the filling over the chilled crust and smooth out the top with a rubber spatula. Place in the freezer to set for 30 minutes.
  • While the filling is setting, combine the passionfruit pulp and 1 tbsp maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Cook for 3-5 minutes, or until mixture slightly thickens. Cool slightly before pouring over filling. Place bars in refrigerator to set completely for at least 3 hours.
  • Cut into bars and refrigerate until ready to serve!


*If you are short on time, soak cashews in hot water for 30 minutes-1 hour
