It's just green tea powder but boy is it expensive. I paid $14 for a baggie of matcha powder at Dobra Tea because it was a little cheaper than Greenlife/Whole Foods. Thankfully, not a lot is required for recipes including the amazing-looking matcha spelt rolls I made tonight. It's a yeast bread that's not too hard to make. I used SunSpire carob chips inside. The rolls were reminiscent of pain au chocolat.
Hm, after my bake-a-thon tonight with whoopie pies and green tea spelt rolls, I'm thinking matcha whoopie pies!
An added bonus: peanut butter chocolate cookies from Whole Foods' website. I used the carob chips again. There's a nice taste to the chips, but the sweetness is missing.
