Chocolate Matcha Brownies (Vegan & Gluten-free)

Who can resist a good chocolaty, gooey, rich brownie? It’s one of the best desserts ever invented! I always have room for a brownie, even when I’m stuffed. That’s when my second stomach wakes up from its slumber!

Who says you can’t make a vegan and gluten-free treat without compromising on taste and texture? These chocolate matcha brownies are dense and sweet whilst being much healthier than regular brownies. 

Adding matcha to baked goods is a great and easy way to add a dose of antioxidants into your diet at the same time as treating  yourself to something delicious!

If matcha is not your thing because you don’t like the taste of it, but still want to take advantage of it’s amazing benefits, then adding it to chocolate recipes is a great idea as you can hardly taste the matcha. 

I happen to like the taste of matcha, so I sprinkled some more PureChimp matcha on top of the brownies. I love the way the vibrant green colour complements the earthy brown tones of the chocolate.

  1. These look amazing and I must try them! Question – if I use regular flour will they still be as fudgy? And would I still need the ground almonds? Thank you!

  2. Thank you. Awesome recipe. My favourite brownies. When I did not have gluten free flour, I used whole grain spelled flour. And no almonds, but mix of nuts.
