What I Ate Wednesday – Matcha Chocolate Chip Scones

Happy Wednesday friends! I finally got around to experimenting with my matcha green tea powder. I originally planned on baking some cookies when at the last minute, I decided to make a batch of Matcha Chocolate Chip Scones instead. These are the perfect dunking partner for your afternoon cup of coffee or tea!

But first, let’s take a quick peek at some of my favorite eats from last week.

Breakfast

A chocolate chip waffle makes the perfect serving vessel for a sweet and savory breakfast sandwich. My syrup is the newly released KNOW Better maple syrup! And in case you’re wondering, it’s delicious!

Morning Snack

KNOW Better cupcakes are seriously the bomb! Look at how fudgey and dense these are! They are the perfect size for a mid-morning snack.

Lunch

I was excited to try one of the naan breads I baked last week. I followed this recipe for the bread but substituted Quest Nutrition Multipurpose baking protein for the Nuzest. My toppings were pretty simple, dairy free mozarella, shredded turkey and some of those fresh figs from my neighbor’s yard!

Who’s ready for to join me for some afternoon tea and Matcha Chocolate Chip Scones!

I used this Certified Organic Pure Matcha Green Tea Powder from Vitacost!

This scone recipe comes together quickly and bakes up in only 15-18 minutes! No need to worry about a strong green tea flavor. The matcha is balanced out nicely by the sweetness from the coconut sugar and the chocolate chips. I hope you enjoy the recipe!

Dinner

This grilled Ahi Tuna was spectacular! I found an awesome seafood market just slighly over the South Carolina border that has amazing fish! As you can see, I prefer my tuna more on the rare side to truly enjoy the taste! I’m also putting that 25lb bag of jasmine rice to good use that I picked up at Costco! Any guesses on how long that will last?

 

Dessert

Not my typical nightcap before bed, but I simply could not resist sampling one of the mini strawberry cheesecake bites I had made earlier that day! Teaser for now, but I will be sharing the recipe soon!

That’s it for this week’s roundup! See you back here on Friday!

Have you ever tried matcha green tea powder before? Please share your favorite ways to use matcha powder, I definitely need more ideas!
