Matcha benefits, nothing scary about it
Fortunately enough, these matcha green tea bars taste better than they look! We all know that chocolate and matcha pair well together, and create the perfect balance of sweet and earthy-umami. On top of that, matcha has loads of benefits when taken properly!
It’s always important to use high quality matcha when drinking it. That way, you get all the nutritional benefits there are to matcha.
Matcha green tea offers numerous health benefits. It is known for its rich nutritional profile and high antioxidant content. Consuming high-quality matcha provides a concentrated source of vitamins, minerals, and beneficial plant compounds. Matcha is believed to boost metabolism, enhance focus and concentration, promote relaxation, and support overall well-being.
Additionally, matcha contains an amino acid called L-theanine, which can induce a calming effect and improve mental clarity. Incorporating matcha green tea into your diet can be a delicious way to enjoy these health benefits while indulging in a sweet treat like homemade matcha green tea Kit Kat bars.
In this case, we’re creating a sweet treat with matcha, so we can use Culinary Grade Matcha Powder. This type of matcha is best for food and other baked goods. This way, you get the full flavor of matcha, and still the vibrant green from great quality matcha.
Here’s everything you need to know about matcha and if it goes bad or isn’t as fresh anymore.

Matcha Kit Kat recipe for any occasion
You can definitely make these matcha Kit Kats every Halloween, but you can also make them all-year round! It’s all in the decorating, but the base ingredients stay the same. Simply shape or mold the bars to look like the classic Kit Kat—sans the logo, maybe.
It’s best to mix white chocolate and green matcha powder for the outer coating of the Kit Kat bars, but as for the wafer, try using another flavor—hazelnut or chocolate, to start—to see what else pairs well with matcha green tea. Although more often than not, many ingredients pair well with matcha!
