6-ingredient Keto Matcha Coconut Truffles (sugar free, low carb, no bake)

Healthy Matcha Coconut Truffles

Matcha and coconut pair together as well as peanut butter and chocolate…  or apples and cinnamon…  or sprinkles on donuts.  The matcha is earthy and slightly bitter while the coconut is rich with a natural sweetness — they’re just meant to be together.  That’s why I combined them in these Matcha Coconut Truffles!

Easy, no-bake, 6-ingredient Matcha Coconut Truffles made healthy! They're rich and sweet yet made without butter, heavy cream, and sugar. They're keto-friendly, low carb, sugar free, and gluten free too!

These easy, no-bake Matcha Coconut Truffles are dense, fudgy, and surprisingly filling!

And they require only 6 ingredients to make.  Unlike regular truffles, which call for butter, heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, and sugar, these truffles are made with healthier swaps so you can enjoy the sweet taste of dessert without the unhealthy ingredients.

Instead of butter, I used coconut butter.

Coconut butter is basically the white flesh of the coconut that has been ground up, similar to how peanuts are ground to make peanut butter.  It’s ultra rich and when it’s soft, it spreads like butter.  When it’s melted, it looks like frosting (it’s not as sweet as frosting, but dang I could still eat it straight up as if it were)!

Instead of heavy cream, I used coconut milk.

Coconut milk is thick and creamy, just like heavy cream, so it makes for a perfect substitute!

Instead of sugar, I used stevia extract.

I love using stevia extract because it’s all natural, sugar free, and calorie free.  And a little goes a long way!  You only need 1 tsp of stevia for the entire recipe, whereas if you used sugar, you’d probably need to use 1 cup or more.  I mean, why not save yourself from an extra 750 (empty) calories and a sugar crash?  😉

To make these matcha-coconut flavored, I added 2 tsp of matcha powder.  This is the perfect amount for both a good color and great flavor.  Finally, I mixed in 1 cup of shredded coconut.  It brings everything together into a scoopable dough.  I love the chewy texture it adds to the truffles!

It’s hard to believe these rich and sweet Matcha Coconut Truffles are made without butter, heavy cream, and sugar!

Best of all, they’re keto-friendly, low carb, sugar free, and gluten free too!

  3. Hi Jessica!
    These matcha coconut truffles look absolutely incredible! Would it be possible to substitute the vanilla whey protein powder with a plant based protein powder instead? Thank you so much for posting this recipe! 🙂

    • Whey protein and vegan protein powders work completely differently, so if you want to make this vegan you’d need to do some recipe testing. I feel like vanilla brown rice protein powder could work, but since it absorbs more liquid than whey you’d also need to increase the coconut milk, so make sure to keep a little bit extra on hand! 🙂
