These matcha slice bars are light, not too sweet, and perfectly compliment the raw pistachio date base. Plus, the best part is you won't have to soak any cashews to make them so there's no waiting around. They’re gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and make the ultimate freezer snack.

No-Bake Matcha Slice Bars With Pistachios [Vegan, Gluten-Free]






For the Base:

  • 6 Medjool dates, pits removed
  • 1/3 cup of pistachios
  • 1/3 cup of shredded coconut

For the Topping:

  • 1/8 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons coconut cream
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder


  1. Add the Medjool dates, pits removed, into a food processor, and blend them until it forms a paste.
  2. Add the pistachios and shredded coconut and blend the mixture until combined.
  3. Transfer the mixture into an 8x4x1/2-inch loaf pan, that’s lined with baking paper, and with your fingers, form an even base. Set this aside while you make the filling.
  4. For the matcha filling, add an inch of water, into a small pot, bring it to a boil, then take it off the heat, and place a heat proof, glass bowl, on top.
  5. Next, place the coconut oil into the bowl, to gently melt, then add the almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla essence, lemon juice, and coconut cream, and whisk the mixture until combined.
  6. Finally, add the matcha powder and give it a quick whisk.
  7. Blend the matcha filling, with a hand blender, to emulsify the mixture and then pour it on top of your pistachio base, and with a spatula, smooth it out. If needed, gently jiggle the tray, and tap it to release any unwanted air bubbles.
