1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 cup blanched almond flour
2 scoops Island Bliss
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons shredded coconut, divided
Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a 9-inch cake pan with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla together until light and creamy. Add in the egg and mix until well combined.
Add the almond flour, Island Bliss, and baking powder. Mix well until you get a creamy consistency.
Gently fold in two tablespoons of the shredded coconut.
Pour the prepared batter into the cake pan, smoothing into an even layer, and top with remaining shredded coconut. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes until the toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let it cool for about 10 minutes before slicing into squares. Store leftovers in an airtight container on the counter for a couple days or in the fridge for up to 5 days.
