Matcha Cacao Raw Brownies

The perfect energizing treat!

What is Matcha?


Matcha is green tea in the whole food form. Instead of steeping the tea leaves, they are ground into a powder and consumed. Simply put, when you are drinking matcha, you are drinking a plant! True matcha is sourced from Japan. The region best known for its matcha is Uji, located on the outskirts of Kyoto. It is among the highest sources of antioxidants, (more than blueberries or acai!). Matcha contains high amounts of L-theanine, an amino acid that helps decrease stress. Because of this, matcha gives you sustained energy over time, rather than a quick spike followed by a crash.


Ingredients:

Brownies:

1 C pecans

1 C walnuts

1/3 C cacao powder

2 C Medjool dates, pitted

¼ C coconut butter

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 tsp vanilla extract


Frosting:

1 C raw cashews, (soaked in water for at least 2-4 hours and drained)

2 tsp vanilla

2 tsp matcha powder

¼ C maple syrup

1/3 C coconut oil, melted

Pinch of sea salt


Instructions:


Add pecans and dates to a food processor and pulse until crumbly. Add remaining ingredients and process until a smooth dough forms.

Press into a 9X9 glass baking pan (or something equivalent and place in freezer while you make the frosting.


For the frosting, drain the cashews and place in a high speed blender along with remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth and creamy, scraping down sides to make sure everything is incorporated. If frosting is too thick, you can add a TBS of nondairy milk to help it come together.

Spread frosting evenly over brownie layer and freeze for an additional hour to ensure smooth serving.


Refrigerate for up to a week. Or freeze for up to a month!
