Healthy Matcha Green Tea Fudge DIY Protein Bars
These Healthy Homemade Matcha Green Tea Fudge Protein Bars are incredibly unique and totally healthy — packed with quality protein, healthy fats and all natural goodness, these sweet and fudgy treats are surprisingly filling and 100% nutritious!
Plus, they’re no bake and super easy to make. Oh, and they’re naturally green too (no artificial food coloring here).
Yes, I know a green protein bar is a really weird concept to wrap our heads around, let alone eat… but you gotta admit, it’s pretty fascinating 😉 And once you think about it, people eat green sweets all the time! Like green Lucky Charm marshmallows and green Fruit Loops… or Granny Smith apples and kiwis, for those who eat au naturel.
I mean, look at the chocolate drizzle. A generous drizzling of chocolate can make anything taste better, and it sure did the trick here. I don’t even like matcha and I loved these protein bars! Fun, easy, healthy — these are the perfect treats to keep on hand for long and busy days. Or any day at all, really.
I genuinely love love love my Abnormal Psychology class, but I really looked forward to it being over so I could eat one of these green things 😉
There are so many health benefits to organic green tea and matcha, so I try to incorporate them into my diet any way possible. Unfortunately, it’s hot here in Arizona so I don’t like drinking tea (plus, my heart belongs to iced coffee), and I’m not a big fan of green tea supplements.
When I posted these pictures on my Instagram, I got more likes than ever before.
I made these protein bars three times — once with raw almond butter and twice with roasted almond butter (both almond butters have no sugar/salt/oil added). The protein bars made with the roasted almond butter definitely tasted better, it helped take away the matcha’s bitterness and it added a stronger, richer flavor. No high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavorings or food dyes, no preservatives, no starches, no bad stuff. Just good wholesome organic ingredients that are good for the body and the earth!
But really now, it’s just damn tasty and it makes our taste buds happy 😉
