Not only are they delicious, but they are super easy to whip up and they so look so pretty too.
So, what is Matcha Green Tea?
Matcha green tea is typically grown and processed in Japan. It contains approximately 25 mg of caffeine per gram, which is around 1/3 of a standard cup of brewed coffee.
Matcha green tea is high in antioxidants, chlorophyll and amino acids, namely L-Theanine, which is said to promote relaxation and alertness. It also contains 4-5 times more L-Theanine than regular green tea.
My friends over at Optimoz also tell me that their Matcha Green Tea provides:
- 137x more antioxidant activity than regular green tea
- Increased energy without the jittery feeling of low quality caffeine sources
- Natural metabolism booster
For my Raw Matcha Brownies, I decided to use the base layer of my Raw Chocolate Brownies with Chocolate Ganache and then add the matcha layer on top.
These amazing treats are also gluten, dairy and refined sugar free and suitable for paleo and vegan lifestyles.
