Mmm… Brownies. Who doesn’t love warm ooey gooey brownies? We’ve made a recipe of Nutella Brownies that you can try here, but this time we wanted to try something different. We love green tea and since Matcha has gained so much popularity these past few years, we decided to make a recipe to fill that Matcha craving! For you guys that are not familiar with Matcha, it’s basically a very fine ground specialized green tea. It has a richer and creamier taste than your usual green tea, which makes it perfect for dessert recipes.
Yes, these brownies taste as INSANE as they look. Perfectly cooked with just the right balance between the bitterness of the Matcha and the sweetness of the white chocolate. In this recipe, because we use a lot of brown sugar and white chocolate, we actually used salted butter. Yes, you read it right. SALTED butter. Some people would be outraged by that sentence, but yes we did. And you know what? It turned out perfect! We believed that if we did use non-salted butter, the brownies would have definitely been too sweet, or we would’ve to put in a lot of salt anyways.
This recipe was so easy to make, yet all of our family and friends loved it. It’s the perfect easy recipe to impress your entourage! You can easily customize this recipe by replacing the white chocolate by whatever you want, such as dried fruits and nuts. Also, if you like a stronger Matcha taste, feel free to add more of the Matcha powder, but keep in mind that it is very concentrated and you usually don’t need to use a lot.
After baking the brownies, don’t forget to make them cool down! I know the wait is difficult… but it will make the cutting much more easy and satisfying! Happy eating :)!
