Raw Matcha Brownies!

So last week I received a sample of Matcha Tea from Eat Clean Tea, I was really excited and ripped the packet open straight away. I'm obsessed with Matcha Lattes but wanted to do something a little bit different...
Matcha Tea Leaves are from Japan and are grounded up to make a powder which is jam packed of antioxidants to help your insides feel beautiful. It gives you energy, helps to clear your skin and detoxes your body! So what's not to love!
I had a load of nuts and fruits in the cupboard so decided to whip up some raw brownies. They are the easiest and tastiest treat you can make, and you don't have to do any baking! Just whizz the ingredients together and put them in the fridge to set. It's that easy!
The topping I just sort of made off a whim, but it tasted amazing and gave a layer of colour to my brownies. But make sure that you mix the frosting up you place it straight in the fridge, otherwise it becomes a watery mess!

Let me know what you think, I absolutely loved these. Thanks for the sample Eat Clean Tea, I've already put my order in for the Ginger Matcha Tea!

Ingredients.
Brownies:
  • 150 grams Walnuts
  • 150 grams Almonds
  • 450 grams Dates
  • 60 g Cacao Powder
Frosting:
  • 250 grams Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Matcha Tea Powder
  1. If you've got dried dates, place them in a bowl with warm water and leave for about 10 minutes to soften. 
  2. Place the Walnuts, Cacao and Almonds in a food processor and pulse until they are finely ground. Remove from the food processor and leave in a bowl.
  3. Drain the dates and add then into the food processor. Blitz for a few minutes until only small pieces remain. 
  4. Add in the nutty mix into the processor and pulse until it is a big ball of dough. 
  5. Squeeze the mixture down onto a tray covered in baking paper. 
  6. Place in the fridge for about 20 minutes to set. (Don't slice until the topping is added!)
  7. Now onto the frosting! 
  8. Place the coconut oil and vanilla extract into a bowl and whisk until smooth. 
  9. Add in the Matcha Tea and whisk until it is an even colour.
  10. Get the brownies out of the fridge and spread the frosting on top of them.
  11. Put them straight back in the fridge until the frosting has set. (Usually about 15 minutes)
  12. Cut up and enjoy!!
Love Lucy xoxo
