Grain Free Matcha Granola and Iced Coconut Matchaccinos

No, that’s not what you might think it is – it’s actually granola (which is addictive as heck). I veeeery nearly called this Munchies Granola and then thought I should maybe not do that. Let’s save the weed puns for the comments sections, yeah? K Cool.

It IS green but that’s due to the heavy-handed sprinkling of teapigs organic Matcha powder that I threw into this grain-free granola mix. Having never tasted matcha before I wasn’t sure if I’d like it but given the jazzy colour and health benefits it boasts I was pumped to try it. I’m already a fan of green tea (especially the genmaicha version with brown rice in it) so of course I fell head over heels for the matcha powder, which is made of very finely ground green tea leaves. It has a slightly grassy/green taste to it (well, yeah) so pairs super nicely with fresh fruit e.g. it’s a perfect granola add-in.

Being pretty much 95% almonds/pecans/pumpkin seeds, the granola is mega yum all by itself. The matcha adds the ‘superfood’ quality and a kick of flavour so you don’t just have boring granola as per ushe. If you don’t have matcha powder you can leave it out of the granola mixture but I’d advise adding some cinnamon (what else would you expect?) to the mixture.

Grain Free Matcha Granola and Iced Coconut Matchaccinos

Just before shooting the granola I decided that I also wanted to make a drink out of the matcha, but at the time (which was like 3 months ago… :/ ) it was super hot and a warm drink was not what I wanted. Instead I opted for a frappuccino style version of the tea, blended with ice and coconut milk and served with a straw.

Yeah I know the paper straws suck (no pun intended) for actual real life purposes but they’re pretty. Pipe down paper-straw-haters.

Grain Free Matcha Granola and Iced Coconut Matchaccinos

Anyway some of you may be having a crisis now because you want to make an iced matchaccino or some of that super good ;) granola but you can’t because you don’t have any matcha! Worry not, the kind people at teapigs have given me one of their Modern Matcha Kits which contains a 30g pot of matcha powder, a little electric whisk, a badge (!!!) and a glass.

Enter below in the rafflecopter box to have a chance at winning it. You’ll be so decked out for matcha making, oh my word.

Grain Free Matcha Granola and Iced Coconut Matchaccinos

 

Note:

If you don’t have matcha powder you can leave it out of the granola, but replace with 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon (stirred into the mixture).

Grain Free Matcha Granola
1 tbsp + 1 tsp matcha powder (divided)
1/4 cup agave syrup or honey
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (or any neutral vegetable oil, or butter)
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup ground almonds
1 cup almonds, divided
1/2 cup pecans, roughly chopped
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds

Preheat oven to 130 C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, stir together 1 tbsp of the matcha powder with the agave syrup, coconut oil, salt and vanilla. Finely chop 3/4 cup of the almonds (you can do this with a knife or by pulsing them in a food processor for a few seconds). Then roughly chop the remaining 1/4 cup of almonds. Add the finely + roughly chopped almonds to the bowl along with the ground almonds, pecans and pumpkin seeds. Stir together until you get a kind of sticky dough.

Break the dough into lots of small clumps and spread them out over the baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes then remove from the oven and break up into smaller pieces as desired. Place back into the oven for a further 10 minutes. Leave to cool before transferring to an airtight jar. Add the remaining 1 tsp of matcha powder, put the lid on the jar and then shake to distribute the powder over all of the granola.

Iced Coconut Matchaccino

1 tsp matcha powder
1 tbsp boiling water
roughly 1/2 cup ice
1/2 cup coconut milk (or any kind of milk)
1 tsp agave syrup, cane sugar or honey

Whisk the water into the matcha powder and pour into a blender along with the ice, coconut milk and sweetener. Blend until smooth.

GAH! Ok, let’s first talk about the fact that I have tried, in text form, to use the word “ushe”, and have never been able to think of how to spell it in order for people to understand what the heck you’re trying to say. Us? usu? uzze? Ushe. That’s perfect. I’m stealing it from you and using it always.

Second, I have that same measuring cup and I adore it! It does make me nervous everytime I use it because it’s so fragile, but I love that it looks like a tiny beaker. I am a scientist by day and baker by night, so my friend bought it for me because she knows I like nerdy things.

Third, I love green tea. I’ve become a tea snob over the years and have always wanted to try the matcha powder but have never forked over the cash for it. I’d LOVE to have some to play around with! Your recipes are awesome and the photos are unique and colorful.

Iced coconut macchiato sounds deeelish, but Matcha is fab in macaroons wit dark chocolate filling.. two favourite things!

My mom has this really brilliant frosted buttermilk cookie recipe, and this would make the most beaaauuutifully green (and totally healthy, because matcha! so eat all of them, basically) cookie! Maybe with a really light raspberry frosting and some pistachios sprinkled on top? YUM.

Hope I win. I use matcha to make cakes, ice cream, noodles, soups, tea mixes, lattes, lemonade, and sandwhiches. I use it for everything! L)

I love matcha and I’m keep trying to get my friends into it too but they’re always scared away by the such highly pigmented colour! I’m going to share this with them and hopefully it will convince them :)

How and why it took me so long to find your blog is beyond me but I’m so glad I did. And gurl, so glad you found and love matcha because it is legit good stuff. Your matcha granola is genius and as soon as I’m done moving I’m whipping up a batch. Breakfast with built in caffeine is my jam!! xo

Alana | Fix Feast Flair August 24, 2014 at 2:45 am

And because I can’t pass up a contest (although, I’m not sure why because I haven’t won something since, oh I don’t know, the lei making contest in second grade), I’m gonna enter and say I’d make your matcha granola, shakeratchas (matcha + milk + simple sugar, shaken in a cocktail shaker and served on the rocks) and matcha mochi!! P.s. Cheers and congrats on the book. Will be ordering shortly–basically as soon as I’m at a legit address again.
