Not only is NutraMatcha delicious and packed with fortifying nutrients, but it’s also surprisingly versatile. From baking to garnishes, NutraMatcha powder is a great addition to your gourmet cooking experiments.
Baking with Matcha Powder
Have you ever tried baking with matcha? Not only is it a great way to add some extra nutrients to your baked goods, but it’s also a rich (and trendy) flavor to experiment with. Add in the vivid green color that NutraMatcha powder lends to everything, and you have the components of a show-stopping signature baked good.
Often, matcha can be subtly added into any of your favorite recipes, with just a tablespoon of matcha powder. NutraMatcha’s unique blend makes it an ideal ingredient for baking because of its rich but smooth flavor, a result of the high quality and subtle monkfruit and stevia sweetening.
Not sure you’ll be a fan? Well, give it a try with something simple. These scones are easy for anyone to make, and the recipe is simple enough to tweak according to your dietary preferences and restrictions. The fresh green taste of matcha provides the perfect counterpoint to the warm smell of baked bread and the tanginess of fruit that sweetens the recipe.
