It's all about the Matcha… Bread

 

I have loved matcha green tea for as long as I can remember, and every time I eat in me and my husband's favorite Japanese restaurant, I cannot resist the temptation to pre-order the matcha ice cream! 

When I moved to Miami, I drove 40 minutes to my nearest Trader Joe's, and instantly fell in love. One of their best products EVER is the Matcha-Latte powder, the key ingredient for your very own "Matcha Frappé" to refresh you from the Miami eternal summer weather.  

I truly believe that every meal needs to have a sweet ending, and since I quit eating refined sugar, white flour and dairy, I decided to create my own ¨Matcha Bread¨.

After preparing this, you will know that it does not have to be an extra chocolate-butter dessert to be amazing, trust me it has the exact amount of sweetness provided by coconut sugar, natural antioxidants and all the guilt free to enjoy in every bite!
