We teamed up with our friends at Nora's Kitchen to bring you yet another delicious granola recipe! Who's with us when we say we can't get enough good vegan granola in our lives? We thought so √
Enjoy this guest post by Nora's Kitchen!
In the same way, Nora’s Kitchen started, a lot of us enjoy making our own vegan granola at home, especially this matcha granola recipe! There’s just something special about the process and how the delicious granola smells waft through your entire home as it bakes. It’s almost nostalgic in a way, bringing you back to your senses and allowing you to explore freely within your own kitchen.
Since coffee is a love-hate relationship for me, I dabble between other sources of caffeine regularly which includes matcha. I wanted to create something that not only gave me energy from caffeine but came from natural sources of energy-inducing foods we acquire from protein or fiber. I wanted to do something a little different, but still make a simple snack to share. We decided to team up with another local business here in Portland, Mizuba Tea Co., to create a Vegan Coconut Matcha Granola anyone could enjoy. I’m a sucker for good matcha and let me tell you, this is some of the best matcha I’ve ever had. I love matcha not only for the flavor, but for the bursts of antioxidants it holds. Matcha green tea powder is great for weight loss, inducing calm energy, lowering cholesterol to help provide a healthy heart, increase brain power and support skin health. Matcha and granola go hand in hand for many reasons when it comes to keeping your body healthy, easily.
This granola hits close to home since it contains a lot of ingredients we use for our own granola, but we switched some things around to bring out a sweeter flavor to pair with the matcha. We don’t enjoy super sweet granola because we think it should be your choice to add sweetness and build your food how you want it. However, since we kept the sugar low on this recipe, it will be perfect for you to add your favorite non-dairy yogurt (we always use CoYo, they are the best!), a milk alternative (we love Oatly! and Good Karma) or a sweeter fruit like blueberries/peaches to curb your sweet tooth.
This vegan coconut matcha granola recipe has a high protein and fiber count along with providing a low glycemic, no added sugar, zero soy and is gluten-free! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

While we feel the need to "go green" all the time, we know that this particular month has people *really* getting their green game on. So let's not make things any harder than they have to be. In five minutes you could be enjoying your very own pint of Mizuba matcha ice cream! Scroll down for the recipe.
