If you want something thick and fudgy but not overly sweet, you can’t beat these insanely indulgent matcha brownies.
The matcha is wonderfully earthy with hints of vanilla that pair perfectly with the creamy white chocolate. Yum!
The Best Matcha Brownies Recipe
Like any good brownie or blondie, these babies are chewy, fudgy, and super addictive.
I suppose you could also call them matcha blondies if you want since they taste like thick matcha cookies.
But whatever you call them, I know you’ll fall in love at first bite.
Oh, and since you only need a handful of ingredients and just ten minutes, these sweet treats can be on your table in a flash!
Matcha Green Tea Powder
Matcha Green Tea Powder is the key ingredient here. It’s what gives the brownies/blondies their signature color and delicious green tea flavor.
With that in mind, you’ll want to get something top-quality.
I like to look in my local Asian grocery store, but you can also find it online. Look for ‘unsweetened’ and ‘culinary grade’ for the best flavor.
Similarly, you also want to get good quality white chocolate. Unlike regular milk or dark, white chocolate is super difficult to work with and is prone to burning.
So, if you just get a bar of cheap chocolate, you might have burned bits in your brownies! Yuck!
How to Make Matcha Brownies
This recipe is enough for an 8-inch square cake pan.
- 240 grams of All-Purpose Flour (2 cups)
- 200 grams of White Sugar (1 cup)
- 2 tablespoons of Matcha Green Tea Powder
- 225 grams of Butter, melted (1 cup)
- 2 large Eggs
- 2 teaspoons of Vanilla Paste
- 170 grams of White Chocolate Chips (1 cup)
*Note: feel free to buy a decent bar of white chocolate and cut it into chunks
- Preheat the oven to 175°C (350°G).
- Grease an 8x8 inch baking tray and line it with parchment paper.
- Sift the flour and matcha powder into a large bowl, then whisk in the white sugar.
- Make a small well in the middle of the dry mix and add the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla paste.
- Mix with a spatula until almost completely incorporated.
- Add the white chocolate and finish mixing the batter until you no longer see flour streaks.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan (it will be thick) and spread it out to reach the sides, and the top is flat.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out mostly clean (a few small crumbs is good).
- Leave to cool in the pan, then cut and enjoy!
