When we were in Japan last week I sure got my daily fix green tea. I started my day with a cup of green tea in our hotel room since every hotel we stayed in had really great tea and a kettle in the rooms. And I ended almost every day with a sweet matcha treat.

Though I didn’t have matcha rice krispies treats in Japan, this is my way of bringing a little bit of it back with me. Though matcha is somewhat an acquired taste, if you’re matcha mad like I am, then you’re absolutely love this easy recipe!

  1. I’ve never had Matcha anything! I will have to try it out.

    • It’s definitely an acquired taste. I think most people love it or hate it, kinda like cilantro…but I LOVE it!

  2. I’ve just been getting into matcha! Mostly in smoothies right now, but these look super interesting so I may just need to give them a try. XO

    • Oh I haven’t tried it in smoothies! Such a great idea!

    Do you think the vanilla extract would be necessary if you used Vanilla Matcha?
