  • 5 cups fine-ground almond flour
  • 1/4 cup HighKey Monk Fruit Stevia Allulose Erythritol Blend
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free maple syrup
  • 5 ounces Key lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Key lime zest
  • Pinch of salt



  • 1 cup cacao butter chopped and melted
  • 1 tablespoon matcha powder for topping


Allergen disclaimer: Contains Tree Nuts, Citrus.



  1. In a large bowl mix together all ingredients except those for the coating. If the mixture is too dry (this will depend on the brand of your coconut butter) add in an additional ¼ cup of coconut butter - the mixture should form into balls easily. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and roll the dough into 16 balls.
  2. Freeze cake balls for 20 minutes until slightly firm.
  3. In a small bowl melt the cacao butter in the microwave in 30 second increments until smooth.
  4. Dip each bite into the cacao butter, let the excess fall off then place back on the pan. Repeat, dipping each ball into the cacao butter 3-4 times until you’ve used all of the cacao butter. Return to freezer for 15 minutes to allow the cacao to set then sprinkle with matcha. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
