You’ve probably seen on my Instagram that I am currently working with Motion Matcha to create some matcha recipes!
I am a huuuuge fan of matcha, but not everyone is. If you’ve never tried it, I highly recommend trying Motion Matcha over any other brand. It has none of the bitter aftertaste that matcha is notorious for, plus they have super unique flavors. I would only work with a brand that I really love, so know that this is all 100% honest!
The first thing I made with the matcha was fruity baked oatmeal. This was my first time making baked oatmeal and it was so delicious! It kept me full for so long because of the protein, plus the caffeine in the matcha kept me awake all day! The caffeine in matcha is released more steadily than coffee, which means you get energy without ever crashing.
Matcha Baked Oatmeal
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 container applesauce- I used 90g of apple mango
1/2 cup milk- I used unsweetened vanilla almond
2 egg whites- I used cartoned
1 scoop whey- I used chocolate ETB Fit
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup oats
2 packets orange vanilla Motion Matcha (or any flavor)
1 Tbsp each hemp, chia, and flax seeds (optional)
Sweetener if preferred, but I didn’t use any
- Preheat to 350 and grease a loaf pan
- Melt coconut oil and let cool
- Add milk, egg whites, and applesauce
- Add oats, protein powder, baking powder, matcha, and seeds or mix-ins of using
- Bake until set, around 25 minutes
My next idea was matcha cookie dough, which as you can see was made many times. I am seriously addicted to this. It’s sticky and tastes just like cookie dough! (This is the same recipe as my Protein Cookie Dough)
Matcha Cookie Dough
½ tsp melted coconut oil
½ scoop chocolate whey
1 tsp Motion Matcha
2 Tbsp oat flour
1 tsp sweet potato baby food
¼ tsp coconut sugar
splash almond extract
1 tsp mini chocolate chips
- Melt coconut oil.
- Add all other ingredients, and mix well. You may need to sort of “knead” it with a spoon for it to come together.
Next up was matcha donuts. I’m calling these single serve because I ate them both at once. I understand that most people wouldn’t eat 2 donuts at once, though, so many they aren’t really single serve…
Single Serve Matcha Donuts (Makes 2)
2 Tbsp Namaste gf flour
1 tsp coconut sugar (or more)
2 tsp Motion Matcha (using flavored packets would be great, too!)
¼ tsp baking powder
1 tsp liquid egg whites
1 tsp almond extract
2 Tbsp almond milk
1 Tbsp pumpkin
1 tsp oil
splash apple cider vinegar
- Preheat to 350
- Grease donut pan (you’ll only use 2 of the donut spots)
- Mix the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, matcha, and baking powder).
- Add the wet ingredients, and mix well.
- Pour into the prepared pan, and bake approximately 5-10 minutes (it took 7 minutes for me).
- After they cool for a few minutes, flip them out of the pan. Melt chocolate chips, and dip ’em in! (Optional)
When I saw these Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Filled Cookies, I knew I wanted to make something similar with matcha. The cheesecake went so well with the matcha flavor!
Cheesecake Stuffed Matcha Cookies
Inspired by Sarah Lynn Fit’s Cheesecake Stuffed Pumpkin Cookies
¼ cup vegan butter
¼ cup coconut sugar
½ tsp almond extract
1 cup flour
¼ cup garbanzo flour
½ tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp Motion Matcha
¼ cup cream cheese
1 Tbsp coconut sugar
¼ tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350
- Cream together butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla extract, and mix well. Add all other ingredients and mix well.
- Prepare the cheesecake filling: mix together all ingredients.
- Roll dough into balls, and then flatten. Put a little blob of cheesecake in the middle, and then roll the dough back into a ball around it.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes.
I also made a few smoothies using my matcha…
The swirled design is inspired by @rachelrenelorton on Instagram
On the left, that’s 1 cup ice, 1 cup almond milk, 1 banana, 1 scoop Strawberry Quest Protein Powder, blended. I poured half of it into the glass, then added 1 packet of Strawberry Lemonade Motion Matcha to the other half and layered it on top!
On the right, I made a strawberry banana acai smoothie bowl. Then I swirled in yogurt, and yogurt mixed with Motion Matcha!
