(Serves 4)

  • 1 ½ cups of almond flour
  • 1 ½ cup of melted unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 ½ cups of sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup of chopped macadamia nuts
  • ½ can of sweetened condensed milk
  • ¾ cup of canned cream of coconut
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish and set it aside for later.
  2. Using a food processor, combine the almond flour and powdered sugar with 1 cup of melted unsalted butter. Pulse until the mixture is crumbly.
  3. Firmly press the crumb mixture into the bottom of the greased baking dish, creating an even crust. Use the back of a spoon or a spatula to ensure a smooth and compact layer.
  4. Put the baking dish in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
  5. Take a bowl and add in the remaining melted butter, shredded coconut, macadamia nuts, condensed milk, cream of coconut, and vanilla extract.
  6. Pour this mixture over the baked layer, ensuring that every corner is covered.
  7. Place the baking dish again in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 25-30 minutes, or until the edges turn golden brown and the center sets.
  8. Remove the dish from the oven and allow it to cool completely on a wire rack. Once cooled, refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow the bars to firm up.
  9. After chilling, use a sharp knife to cut the bars into your preferred portion sizes and serve.


Can I use unsweetened shredded coconut instead of sweetened shredded coconut?

Certainly, if you prefer a flavor you can opt for unsweetened shredded coconut. It's worth noting that the bars might have a reduced level of sweetness overall so if desired you could consider adjusting the sweetness by incorporating a touch sugar.

Can I substitute macadamia nuts with another type of nut?

Sure! While macadamia nuts add a taste and crunch to the bars feel free to replace them with nuts such, as almonds, walnuts or pecans. You can choose your nut. Get creative by trying out different combinations to put your personal touch on the recipe.

How long can I store the coconut macadamia nut bars?

You can keep these bars in a container in the fridge for around 5 7 days. It's important to let them cool down completely before storing to avoid any moisture buildup. If you want to make them last longer you can freeze them for 2 3 months. Just make sure to wrap them or put them in an airtight container to keep them fresh.

Can I add other ingredients or flavors to the bars?

Sure thing! Feel free to let your imagination run wild and include some ingredients or flavors to make the bars yours. You could try adding in some chocolate chips, dried fruits or even a touch of sea salt for that balance between sweet and savory. Just remember to be mindful of the proportions and make sure that the added ingredients enhance the taste profile.
