Shivangi Rao
Course Breakfast, Dessert


  • 16 oz. whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter not melted
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • A handful of sliced almonds for garnish


  • On low-medium heat, melt the butter.
  • Add in ricotta cheese once butter is melted, and stir until fully combined for 5 minutes.
  • Add almond flour and keep stirring until it thickens a bit (another 5 minutes).
  • Add the shredded coconut, coconut sugar, cardamom and combine.
  • Keep stirring until well combined and most of the moisture is removed. After stirring for a total of 15-20 minutes on the stove, it should form into a ball due to low moisture.
  • Pour this into a lined or buttered dish evenly (about 1/4 inch thick) and let it cool down completely.
  • Once it is cool, it should solidify.
  • Cut into squares or your desired shape, and garnish with sliced almonds. Enjoy!
