Green Matcha Tea Pistachios Bars
These protein bars remind me of spring, with their vivid green colour (from the matcha). Super healthy and only using the natural sweetness of honey, these no-bake bars are simple to make yet taste phenomenal.
All you need is a food processor (as in many of my recipes). Matcha bars are full of antioxidants, and will give you the power you need to complete your tasks.
