Easy No Bake Matcha Brownie Protein Bites made with oats, protein powder and a few simple ingredients. Matcha Chocolate protein bars are gluten free, sugar free and vegan, and perfect for a quick dessert or snack recipe.

I just got my hands on a new pack of matcha and that color was so bright and vibrant green that I had to make something that would give it a good contrast. Matcha and chocolate with the green and brown seemed like a good idea, and these raw matcha brownies concept came to be.

Added in the protein powder for sweetness because I wanted to make this a healthy matcha snack recipe. And voila! Protein matcha brownie bars!


Does matcha taste good with chocolate?

Before trying this combination I was quite uncertain about this, but yes, matcha definitely tastes really good with chocolate! The earthy flavor of match powder goes quite well with the rich chocolate flavor; In these matcha protein bites and otherwise too.

Ingredients for Matcha Brownie Protein Bites

These matcha brownie protein bars are made with extremely basic ingredients you can find in your pantry, and are all gluten free, sugar free, dairy free and Vegan too!


  • Instant, Quick or Rolled Oats
  • Vanilla Protein Powder for high protein matcha energy bars, and also replace the sweetener.
  • I recommend Protein World Slender Blend or ProteinWorld Whey or for this recipe to keep it sugar free; Use the code HAYLSKITCHEN for a discount.
  • Another option would be Quest.
  • Some Coconut Flour
  • A bit of Almond Milk

The Matcha Oat Layer

  • Matcha Green Tea Powder
  • Some more Coconut Flour

The No Bake Brownie Layer

  • Just Unsweetened Cocoa


And a Sugar-free Chocolate Drizzle!

  • Sugar free Chocolate Bar or Chocolate Chips to make this a matcha brownie bar with no added sugar. I use the ones from Lakanto here (HAYLSKITCHEN for a discount here too). Another option is Lily’s Bar or Chocolate Chips.
  • Coconut Oil so the chocolate is easier to melt and more smooth when you drizzle.

    y'all realize that chocolate chips and chocolate bars have milk in them...hence not vegan? if you are getting vegan chocolate you might wanna tell people what kind you are using. me I don't care, but working in the health food and food industry for many many years...this always bothers me.

      Hi Kellie,


      Thanks for bringing this up. There are plenty of dairy-free chocolates available on the market that can be used here to make the recipe Vegan.:)
