Dark Chocolate Matcha Bars are an awesome addition to your chocolate recipes collection. These bars are both dense and airy at the same time and exploding with chocolate flavor.

And since rumor has it that Dark Chocolate and Matcha are great sources of anti antioxidant, I feel more than OK to add this baby to my healthy living recipes folder.

These brownies are pretty funny to describe. They both light and airy and fudgy and dense. The eggs in the recipe are added separately and more than that, the egg whites are whipped. So, not only we added a generous amount of dark chocolate followed by a small amount of flour. But we also whipped the eggs and incorporated some air to the dense chocolate batter.

And as a result, we have the perfect yin and yang balance to our brownie.

The Marcha comes right before slicing and after the cake is completely cool. Not only it adds a beautiful green color, but it also enhances the dark chocolate flavors.

Now Let’s Talk About This Chocolate Matcha Bars:

  • Use high-quality dark chocolate (I used 72%) for the best result.
  • Please allow the baked cake to completely cool before removing from the pan and slice. Removing it too soon might break it.
  • Be very careful when adding Matcha powder, it can be very bitter when adding too much.
  • If you are not a matcha fan, no worries. Skip is. Dust is with powdered sugar or maybe sprinkle with finely chopped nuts just before baking.

HAPPY BAKING!!!
