Back when I was looking for a cookie to send for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2013, I ended up making Matcha-Black Sesame Shortbreads...after a little inspirational gift - the matcha - from a friend whose family owns a sushi deli. I made my way through the canister, loving the delicate color and subtle flavor. I made a note to myself: Get more matcha soon.
I've been through about multiple different canisters now.
Earlier this year I received an email regarding an opportunity to review some organic matcha from Kiss Me Organics. I jumped at the opportunity. I especially liked that the matcha came with recipe ideas.
I followed several of the recipes and enjoyed each one. I'm sharing a recipe of my own...
This loaf makes for a quick and portable breakfast. I served these with some yogurt and fruit before we headed off for one of our adventures during Spring Break. Fast and tasty!
