Raw vegan Matcha green tea oat bars

Green tea oat bar 1

Make way for green food! These spring green oat bars speckled with scarlet goji berries and crunchy nuts are a munchy delight. Mmm! You have chewy sweet dates and earthy sweet goji berries, crunchy nuts and sweet coconut to offset the slightly bitter green tea.

Also, unlike many shop-bought snack bars, these contain nothing but wholesome ingredients. You won’t want to go back!

These delicious raw Matcha green tea oat bars are incredibly easy to make. Just mix together all the ingredients in a bowl, compress in a baking tray, pop in the freezer to chill and then slice up into bars. Who said clean-eating needed to be time-consuming?!

These bars are plant-based and so suitable for vegans and by using gluten-free oats, they can be made gluten-free. I love to boost the protein content using protein powder (soya bean, pea and whey work well). If you have run out, you can substitute for more oats.

These bars also freeze well and travel well, making them great handy snacks.

Makes: 12 bars

Preparation time: 12-15 mins. Chilling time: 1 hr

Ingredients:

  • 6 Medjool dates, de-seeded and chopped into small chunks
  • 130g rolled oats (gluten-free if required)
  • 60g nuts of choice (I have used walnuts and pistachios in the ones pictured), roughly chopped
  • 75g coconut oil, melted
  • 30g desiccated coconut (unsweetened)
  • 3 tbsp protein powder (soya bean/ pea/ whey).
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp cashew butter*
  • 2 tbsp goji berries
  • 1 tbsp Matcha green tea powder
  • ½ tsp salt

*Note:

You can use peanut butter, but this imparts a strong peanut flavour, which masks the flavour of the green tea.

Method:

  • In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients and mix well. The oats quickly assume a spring green colour.
  • Line a baking tin with greaseproof paper, greased with a little coconut oil (I used a 16cm X 26cm pan).
  • Transfer the oaty mix into the pan and using a spatula, compress the oaty mix into the tin.

  • Pop in the freezer for 1hr. Transfer onto a chopping board and slice into bars.
  • These bars keep fresh in the fridge for 7-10 days. Enjoy!

 

Variations:

Goldenberry and chia

  1. Definitely going to try these ones, just one question – where’s a good place in London to get the green tea powder? I’ve looked about a bit but everywhere seems to only sell little amounts and I’d like to get a decent quantity as I like the tea anyway 🙂 Love the site, definitely going to try some of these recipes.
