No-bake Matcha 'Brownies'

No-bake Matcha 'Brownies'

Matcha is one of my favourite foods! I love its flavour and colour as well as its subtly uplifting effect. It tastes amazing in sweets so here I've used it as I would cacao to make indulgent little brownie bites. The oats give creaminess and make the bites lighter, rice malt syrup adds a slight chewiness and miso rounds everything off beautifully. Just as good popped into your bag or lunchbox to keep you going, or with a cup of tea.

Makes about 18 x 3 cm square pieces
preparation time - 20min + 10min in fridge
Keeps up to 2 weeks in fridge

Ingredients

Base:
Coating:

Method

  1. Blend the nuts and oats to a course flour in a food processor or blender. Add the remaining ingredients and process until the mixture looks moist and just starts lumping together. Line a small tray with baking paper – a regular bread tin works well. Squish the mixture into the tin to form an even base.
  2. Melt the white chocolate and oil. You can do this in a small heatproof bowl placed over a pot of simmering water, or use a microwave. Spread half of the chocolate evenly over the base. Using a fork, whisk matcha into the remaining chocolate and drizzle it over the base. Drag a toothpick between the white and green to create patterns.
  3.  Let firm up in fridge. Cut in squares (or triangles as in the image) using a big sharp knife. For neatest results, pour hot water on the knife before cutting, and wipe knife between cuts. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

I love this hot, soothing miso soup as a pick-me up at any time of the day. Simply pop the ingredients in a tea cup, top up with hot water, done! Or, bring them to work portioned up and ready to go – perfect for meal prep. You can vary this recipe indefinitely, just include something a little spicy or acidic to lift the salty miso. I like a few spoons of oats in mine to make it a little more substantial, almost like rice!
