We love a good cuppa matcha around here, but are constantly inspired to find creative ways to infuse and dust our Boketto Matcha in and on nearly everything. Truffles, treats, sweets and everything in between. These decadent little "cheesecake" indulgences satisfy all of those sweet spots and are just as suitable for breakfast as they are for dessert.

A macadamia nut and pumpkin seed crust is layered with a matcha-infused cashew and coconut filling followed by a subtly sweet hibiscus layer that we've of course infused with our apothecary adaptogenic goods. Garnished with bits of dried rose petals and calendula, it's a lovely late summer fix that's rich, but deeply wholesome. 

Matcha Hibiscus Cheesecake Bites

Makes 12-15 cheesecake squares, depending on the size of the cut

Recipe adapted from & be well's Rosewater Pistachio Tart

Macadamia & Pumpkin Seed Crust

1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup raw macadamia nuts 

6 organic medjool dates

2 tbsp coconut oil

1 cup almond meal

1/4 cup dried, shredded unsweetened coconut

In a food processor, process pumpkin seeds and macadamia nuts into a coarse powder. Add in 3 of the dates + coconut oil, blend until well combined. Add the other 3 dates, almond meal and shredded coconut. Blend until well combined.

Take the crust mixture, and using your hands, press evenly throughout a nonstick loaf pan until the entire bottom is covered. Place pan in the freezer to chill while you make the filling.
