PaleoHacks [1]


8x8 Baking pan
Parchment paper
Electric mixer or a handheld whisk

If you’ve cooked with matcha powder before and you enjoy its deep flavor, then add 2 tablespoons. If you’d like a more subtle taste, then just add one tablespoon.

Matcha Brownie Recipe


  1. For the Brownies:
    1/2 cup raw cacao powder
    1 cup almond flour
    2 tablespoons matcha powder
    1/4 cup almond butter, softened
    1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
    1/3 cup honey
    3 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon matcha powder for dusting (optional)
  1. For the Matcha Frosting:
    1 cup coconut cream, chilled
    1 tablespoon honey
    2 teaspoons matcha powder


  1. To make the brownies, preheat the oven to 325°F. Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper, allowing the sides to hang over the edges.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together raw cacao powder, almond flour and matcha powder.
  3. In a separate large bowl, whisk the almond butter, coconut oil, honey, eggs and vanilla extract.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth and well combined.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 25 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool in the pan to room temperature.
  6. To make the matcha frosting, combine the coconut cream, honey and matcha powder in a medium-sized bowl. Whip using an electric mixer or a handheld whisk until smooth and creamy.
  7. Remove the brownies from the pan and place them on a cutting board. Spread on the frosting using a spatula.
  8. Using a sharp knife, cut the brownies into 9 squares, dust with matcha powder and enjoy!
