Matcha Bounties Vegan With Coconut Butter and Shredded Coconut

For me, weekend usually means making a stash of cookies and brownies for the next week. I thought I'd start this week with something new – vegan matcha green tea bounties. Classic bounties have always been my favorite quick snack and I've been meaning to make them at home for ages.

These slightly modified bounties are completely vegan-friendly, based on coconut butter, vegan chocolate, and combined with my favorite matcha green tea powder which adds a specific taste you'll adore.

Naturally, this adds up some amazing nutritional values to this classic chocolate recipe. Relatively easy to make, these fabulous treats are a perfect option for handling those afternoon sugar cravings or a fantastic snack to go. Dip each bar in your favorite melted vegan chocolate, chill for a while and enjoy!
