Green tea coconut bars

I’m going through a bit of a green tea phase at the moment. Adding Matcha into my morning smoothies and lattes and now bars.

Green tea powder is chock full of antioxidants – called catechin polyphenols – plus it has great fat burning benefits and acts as a liver detoxer and improves endurance. Be wary that yes the powder still does include caffeine but you really only need small amounts due to it’s potency. (and we don’t want too much caffeine as this stresses our adrenals ladies!)

This recipe has no fructose and is nut free
