Matcha Chocolate Bar Recipe

Meet Your New Favourite Fruit and Nut Bar

As far as we're concerned, there's no ill chocolate can't fix, and this bar in particular goes a way to proving our beliefs. Marrying the creamy taste of white chocolate with the potent superfood that is matcha powder means this chocolate bar is not only disease-fighting, it's also antioxidant-packed. We topped ours with vitamin-rich freeze-dried strawberries and pistachios to make it the perfect, guilt-free, cheat-day snack.

Matcha Chocolate Bar Recipe


  1. 200 grams good-quality white chocolate (chopped into small pieces)
  2. 2 teaspoon matcha powder (I used Bloom)
  3. 2 tablespoon freeze-dried strawberries (I used the Snack Organisation)
  4. 1 tablespoon pistachio pieces


  1. Melt the chocolate and stir in the matcha powder.
  2. Pour the mixture into a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  3. Crumble the strawberries onto the chocolate, followed with the pistachio pieces and a light dusting of matcha powder.
  4. Cover the baking tray with cling film and refrigerate for a few hours until the chocolate is set.
  5. Break the bark into 6-8 portions and enjoy!
