What are Match Green Tea Blondies?  It’s a green tea latte in a blondie square.  It is tea and dessert all in one. Can you imagine?  

The difference between brownies versus blondies is dependent if the classic treat contains chocolate or not.  Brownies contain chocolate. Brownies that do not contain chocolate, is a blondie.  What about antioxidants? I present, blondies with antioxidants and without chocolate – Matcha Green Tea Blondies!  <Haha, if I was eating brownies and chocolate for the antioxidant powers then I’m super charged with antioxidants. I’ll have both brownies and green tea blondies!>

This unconventional brownie is fabulous. The green tea powder with the white chocolate  chips almost makes this taste like a green tea latte in a square.  Plus, the Matcha Green Tea Blondies have a delightful chew.  I’ll admit, I enjoyed a second helping on this “green” dessert on this week’s “green” theme for #supperchallenge.  Green tea dessert following a dinner of Pistachio Matcha Crusted Halibut on Creamed Spinach. Fabulous!
