  • 1 teaspoon lucuma powder
  • ½ cup dates, pitted

Lemon Cream
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice

  • ¼ cup cashews

How to Make It
  1. Blend cashews in a high-power blender to make a flour.
  2. In a food processor, mix the coconut flakes and cashews until combined.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients to the food processor, and mix until a loose dough forms.
  4. Line an 8 × 8-inch brownie pan with parchment paper, and press the dough into the pan with your hands, then top with another sheet of parchment paper, and roll a straight-sided glass over the top to evenly compact the dough. Remove the parchment paper, and set the pan aside while making Lemon Cream.
  5. For the Lemon Cream
  6. Melt the coconut oil in a glass jar placed in hot water, or over a double boiler.
  7. Place all ingredients for the Lemon Cream (except poppy seeds) in a high-power blender, coconut oil last, and blend until smooth and creamy. Stir in poppy seeds by hand.
  8. Pour Lemon Cream over the dough, and chill for about 2 hours, until set.
  9. Remove from the pan, place on a cutting board, and cut into squares. Store chilled.
