It’s April, spring is in the air and we wanted to celebrate with this gluten-free, vegan Matcha Blondies recipe! These healthy, grain-free treats are full of matcha goodness (rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients, fibre & chlorophyll - and helps with mood and concentration). The secret ingredient is miso which, like other fermented foods, aids with digestion and improved gut health!

Matcha Blondies - gluten free, grain free, vegan, sugar free recipe - Dr Gaye

OPTION 1

Ingredients:

  • 50g cashews
  • 50g almonds
  • 50g oats
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp matcha
  • ½ tsp miso paste

Topping:

  • ¼ bar/20g white chocolate
  • ½ tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp matcha

OPTION 2 (vegan + gluten free + healthier!)

Ingredients:

  • 90g almonds
  • 50g buckwheat flakes (milled)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp date syrup
  • 2 tsp matcha
  • ½ tsp miso paste

Topping:

  • ¼ raw/ 20g raw chocolate of your choice
  • ½ TBSP coconut oil
  • 1 tsp matcha

   

Instructions:

  1. In a dry blender add the nuts and dry ingredients (oats/buckwheat flakes) and blend into a course flour. Add all remaining ingredients, including the matcha and blend into a moist-looking, sloppy-cake-batter-like texture.
  2. Line a small tin/tray/dish with lining paper (makes it easy to get out) and push the mixture down to create an even base. Put in the fridge.
  3. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a small heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.
  4. Once mixed, pour half the mixture evenly over the base. Add the matcha to the rest of the chocolate mixture and drizzle over the previous layer. Drag a toothpick or chopstick between the two different coloured chocolates to make pretty patterns!
  5. Firm up in the fridge, cut into squares with a sharp knife and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
  6. ENJOY!
