While I do love my morning coffee…it turns out I’m also a matcha girl! This homemade matcha granola is the latest iteration of my new love.

Are you a matcha fan? If you’re not yet familiar, matcha is a super antioxidant-packed version of green tea that has major nutritional benefits. Average green tea has a good amount of antioxidants, but matcha has 137 times the amount that traditional steeped green tea does. Because instead of just steeping the tea leaves, you’re consuming the whole leaf and your body receives all the nutrients in it.

Matcha tea leaves are ground into a powder, which is traditionally combined with water using a special matcha whisk to make the power tea. I discovered the joys of matcha after I decided to ween myself off coffee for bit, and switched my coffee shop order to a green tea latte. I quickly became obsessed with the creamy, earthy drink and started making them at home too. But, it took a while for my matcha powder to become something other than a drink.

And now that I’ve tried it…I’m going to be matcha-ing everything! These Raspberry Matcha Bars also came into my life and they are SO good.

I wasn’t sure how matcha would be with granola, and I was a little hesitant to try it, but I’m SO glad I did because this matcha granola is everything.

How to make Matcha Granola

The granola recipe is straightforward and comes together super quickly, like all of my granola recipes. You can have it in the oven in less than 10 minutes, easy.

We use gluten-free rolled oats and flaked coconut as the base of the granola. The flaked coconut is so good here and tastes perfect with the matcha powder! I also added a combo of sliced almonds and pepitas, but you can use your favorite nuts or seeds. I do love the extra splash of green color the pepitas add though!

We sweeten the granola with maple syrup, though you can also use honey if you’re not vegan. Mix until sticky and combined, then bake the granola until golden and crispy. After baking the granola, we add the matcha powder.

By tossing the granola in the matcha powder after it’s baked, we amplify its earthy flavor and make the most of that bold green color.

This coconut matcha granola is crunchy and sweet with the perfect grassy green tea flavor. Add a sprinkle of matcha granola to your yogurt parfait or acai bowl, or snack on it by the handful like I’ve been doing 😉 enjoy!
