Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 8x8 baking pan with butter and line with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Melt the butter. Set aside to cool.
  • Sift your matcha powder into a small bowl. Add in all purpose flour and baking powder. Mix well and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine melted butter and brown sugar. Mix until just combined. Add the egg, vanilla extract, and salt. Whisk until combined.
  • Add your dry ingredients from step 4 to your wet ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  • Lastly, add in the chocolate chips and mix.
  • Spoon batter into your prepared baking pan. Smooth it out with your spatula.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let blondies cool for 10 minutes before cutting into them

Notes

  • Light vs dark brown sugar - I tested this with light and dark brown sugar, and I found that I liked light brown sugar better because it was less sweet. However if you prefer a sweeter blondie, I would recommend using dark brown sugar. You can also choose to use 1/2 light and 1/2 dark.
  • Sift the matcha powder to prevent clumping - Matcha powder likes to clump. Use a fine mesh sieve to sift the matcha powder before mixing it with the other dry ingredients.
  • Customize your blondies with mix ins - As mentioned before, you can choose from a variety of mix ins for your blondies. Some that work well are nuts, dried berries, potato chips, and chocolate chips. You can also choose to make them without any mix ins.
