Matcha red bean mochi brownie

This flavor combination is inspired by my favorite bubble tea order – red bean and matcha! Imagine a matcha brownie with mochi, red bean paste, and red beans. The mochi and sweet red beans will offset the matcha flavor profile.

After making the biscoff mochi brownie, I couldn’t resist dreaming of a mochi brownie v2.0 by adding another texture element. Here’s where the red beans come in.

I’ve added extra ingredients to the Takes 2 Eggs original recipe. The original recipe includes white chocolate to make the brownie different and fudgy.

A good quality matcha powder gives you a beautiful dusting of green on the top of your brownie. The color will dull if you bake the matcha powder into the brownie. After the brownie has cooled, dusting with an acceptable amount of matcha powder is a great idea.
