I know, I know. You're thinking: Didn't you just make these? Well, yes...and no. Here are the Matcha-Chocolate Chip Blondies v.1. This recipe is more streamlined and a little bit more chocolate-y. That's always a good thing in my book.
- 1 C butter
- 2 C flour
- 2/3 C organic dark brown sugar, lightly packed
- 1 t baking powder
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 t organic chocolate extract
- 1/2 t unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 T matcha green tea powder
- 4 to 5 T semi-sweet chocolate pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place flour, sugar, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. With your hands, press the butter into the flour, flattening the cubes into flat leaves. Add in the egg yolks, chocolate extract, cocoa powder, and matcha; press together gently to form dough.
Press two-thirds of the dough mixture into an 8" square pan. Spoon chocolate pieces over the top of the dough. Crumble the remaining flour mixture over the top.
Bake for 35 minutes until the top is golden and firm. Let cool slightly before you slice into bars.
