Don’t know about you but I’m alllll about the simple, nourishing, delicious treats – in fact it’s how I started my business some 6 years ago with a healthy delicious muffin at the Bondi Farmers Market…sweet baby jesus how that time has FLOWN! These days you’ll find most of my nutritious treats in the freezer section of my kitchen – a variety of them, (cuz why just have one when you can have 4)?!!?) sliced, ready to grab when I have the little hankering and these d-frikkin-lish 5 Ingredient Matcha Coconut Slice are in there right now. There is always Matcha in my pantry/tea cupboard (sooooo many teas, can’t get enough, tea is LIFE!) and this month because my gorgeous friend @matchamaiden is the best, we’ve partnered to give all our customers on Brown Paper Eats a sachet of matcha when they order their EATS! Rad right? Did you know Matcha is an incredibly, abundant source of antioxidants to protect your cells from stress and oxidative damage? DID YOU ALSO KNOW YOU CAN HAVE YOUR SWEET TREAT AND NOURISH YOURSELF TOO???! If not then this recipe is your ticket right here to all the good nutrition with a delicious green matcha twist! Enjoy my friends… Jacq xx
5 INGREDIENT MATCHA COCONUT SLICE
Gluten free : Dairy free : Sugar free : Vegan
1/2 cup tahini
1 cup coconut cream
3 tablespoons maple syrup
3 teaspoons matcha powder
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
Pop all ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until creamy. Pour into lined loaf tin and place in freezer to set for 6-8 hours. Store and serve direct from the freezer – storing and serving from freezer is an important element to this treat or it will melt fairly quickly and become more dough like in consistency than fudgey.
+Sesame seeds and coconut flakes used for styling but should have them on hand, sprinkle on top and make it a 7 ingredient recipe!
