Matcha Blondies

Perfect for a not-too-sweet St. Patrick’s Day treat, this twist on a blondie uses matcha powder to add a healthy touch o’ green. They are quick and easy to whip up, with most of the time being hands-off.

16 bars
1 1⁄3 cups gluten-free flour, Note: we used Bob's Red Mill 1:1 Gluten-Free Flour.
1 teaspoon Natural Grocers® Brand Bulk Baking Powder
2 tablespoons organic matcha powder
1 stick unsalted organic butter, melted
1 cup Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Organic Coconut Sugar
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
1 Natural Grocers Brand Regenerative Organic Pasture-Raised Egg, room temperature
1 Natural Grocers Brand Regenerative Organic Pasture-Raised Egg yolk, room temperature
1⁄2 cup Natural Grocers Brand Bulk Organic Fair Trade Bittersweet Chocolate Chips, divided

1. Preheat oven to 350° F and line a 9 x 9-inch baking dish with parchment paper.

2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and matcha in a large mixing bowl.

3. Stir together the melted butter, sugar, vanilla, egg, and egg yolk in a medium mixing bowl.

4. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, folding in until just mixed (the batter will be thick). Fold in ¼ cup of the chocolate chips.

5. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top.

6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and rest on a wire rack until completely cool, about one hour.

7. Cut into squares and enjoy! Store remaining bars in an airtight container on counter for up to three days.
