Ingredients for Matcha Brownies

  • Unsalted Butter. I always make sure to use unsalted butter when baking because there is no “standard” for the amount of salt they can add to butter. So if you add salt to a recipe and then use salted butter you could end up with a very salty end product.
  • Brown Sugar. Brown sugar adds a softer texture to the finished product.
  • Eggs. It will be easier to incorporate the eggs into the batter if they are room temperature.
  • Vanilla Extract. Vanilla is a must in baked goods just like salt. Real vanilla adds a better flavor than imitation vanilla.
  • All-purpose Flour. Measuring the flour correctly is very important. I suggest weighing your flour out (I use this scale). If you want to use a measuring cup, make sure you spoon the flour into the cup and level it off with a knife. Don’t use the cup to scoop directly from the flour.
  • Matcha Powder. This will flavor the brownies.
  • Salt. Salt is a must in baked goods. It will help to balance out the sweetness and improve the overall flavor.
  • White Chocolate. If you’re wanting puddles of chocolate chop up a chocolate bar instead of using chocolate chips.

Ingredients

For Matcha Brownies:

  • 12 tablespoons (170 grams) unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/4 cup (266 grams) brown sugar packed
  • 2 large (100 grams) eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup (180 grams) all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon matcha powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (170 grams) white chocolate chopped

Instructions

For Matcha Brownies:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray an 8×8 pan with non-stick spray and then lay thick strips of parchment paper across the bottom of the pan in a cross shape. This will make it easier to lift the brownies out of the pan once cooled.
  • In a medium bowl mix with a hand mixer combine the melted butter and brown sugar. When fully combined add the eggs and vanilla. Beat until fully combined and light in color.
  • In a small bowl combine the flour, matcha powder, and salt. Whisk to combine and remove any lumps.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Overmixing will create tough brownies.
  • Fold the chocolate into the mixture and pour into the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake the brownies for 25-30 minutes, longer if you would like a firmer brownie.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool.
