These healthy homemade Matcha Fudge Protein Bars are incredibly unique, the most wonderful green and very healthy — packed with protein, healthy fats and the goodness of green tea.
These sweet and fudgy treats are surprisingly filling and there is no baking so they are super easy to make.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour in the freezer
Makes: 18 servings
Ingredients 85g Almond Butter (or nut butter of choice)
1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (or "milk" of choice)
1 tsp Stevia Extract
10 drops Lemon Flavor or Almond Flavour
168g Vanilla Protein Powder** (I used SunWarrior)
60g Oat Flour
4 tsp Organic Matcha Powder
1/2 cup Dark Chocolate, melted (optional)
Line an 8 inch baking tray or container with baking paper and set aside.
In a bowl; mix the almond butter, milk, stevia and lemon flavour until combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the protein powder, oat flour and matcha powder. Slowly add the wet to the dry.
Mix until the mixture is even, it should have a texture like cookie dough.
Scoop the mixture into the prepared dish and flatten the surface.
Tightly cover the pan with cling wrap and place in the freezer for an hour or refrigerate overnight.
They go darker as they set!
Once set slice the protein bars and either enjoy as they are or drizzle liberally with melted chocolate.
1. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer. I like to eat them straight from the freezer as they have the texture of an icecream bar!
2.The lemon flavor just enhances the matcha flavor. You can use almond flavor instead too, this step can be omitted.
3. These didn't turn out as green as usual as I ran out of vanilla protein powder and had to swap to chocolate. They are usually much brighter!
4. This recipe is: low fat, low sugar, high fiber, high protein, gluten free and vegan!
I thought Australia's 'food culture' was originally based on the UK, not USA.
Most traditional food here is certainly NOT USA originated, thank goodness.
How their food 'culture' came to be is anyone's guess.
Don't appreciate your snide remark. I've probably experienced more cultures than you've had 'hot dinners', which is obvious, you don't eat!
Your ignorance is appalling. I don't live in America or eat American food. Couldn't give a stuff what's popular in Japan, as don't live there either.
Gather you're vegan. You're the one who eats 'sad' food, as evidenced by these disgustingly foul (fowl?) recipes.
I AM entitled to express my opinion of what you post, in a public domain. This I've done, & your rude, smart ass reply is NOT appreciated.
Of course I eat hot food what a ludicrous and ignorant thing to say, no need to be rude.
I didn't say you lived in America or ate the food, I said the American diet AKA the Western diet if that makes more sense to you. Yes you are entitled to your opinion of course was just defending my own recipe which is also OK.
Negativity is never encouraged though and is rare on a site such as this. Let's try keep it that way shall we?
Yet ANOTHER recipe I see on 'blogs' received, that I wouldn't even consider, let alone 'cook'.
Some are just stomach-churning to look at photo! Then read the weird ingredients, made up of stuff I've never heard of!
It gives the impression that 'bloggers' think these are the only recipes of interest to people.
It's 'rare' to find a 'normal' recipe, that I'm used to cooking, & eating!
It does taste wonderful. Perhaps you should try new things and become a bit more cultured. That is what life is all about after all. I'm guessing matcha is what stumped you? It is simply ground green tea leaves, very popular in Japan. If you are after the standard American diet - burnt flesh and 3 sad veg then yes look somewhere else, each to there own indeed.
