CHOC-MINT MATCHA CRUNCH BARS (with novelty Winterfell wrapper printable)

With literally minutes left to celebrate Halloween here in Sweden, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share one of the most requested recipes I’ve shown previews of on Instagram. Many people mistakenly thought I had purchased a “Winterfell chocolate bar” when I first shared it during #foodofthrones2016, which of course I was rather chuffed about! 😉 But for those of you who’d like to make one yourself, you can download a free printable chocolate bar wrapper here.

And if you’re simply looking for an easy-to-make, last-minute healthier Halloween treat that truly tastes amazing, you’re in luck too!

CHOC-MINT MATCHA CRUNCH BARS

INGREDIENTS
100 ml unsalted almond butter
4 tbsp rice malt/maple syrup
4 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tsp matcha powder such as Matcha Maiden
10 drops mint flavoured liquid stevia OR 1/4 tsp mint extract
325 ml quinoa oats (or plain oats)
75 ml crunchy quinoa/bran flakes (or other crisp flake-style cereal)
1-2 tsp cacao powder
40 g dark mint chocolate or plain dark chocolate

TO DECORATE (optional)
Melted dark chocolate of choice
Cacao nibs
Matcha white chocolate

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Line a small baking pan with baking paper.
  2. Blitz quinoa oats/oats in a food processor to make a coarse flour.
  3. Add remaining ingredients except for the chocolate and blitz until well combined (a shiny dough should start to form).
  4. Roughly chop/break up the chocolate and pulse blitz in with the rest of the mix to break it up and incorporate.
  5. Pop the mixture into the lined baking tray. Use a spatula or the back of a large spoon to flatten the mixture. Try to create a smooth surface & even thickness.
  6. It shouldn’t take long for the fudge to firm when chilled. To do it quickly, place it in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. Remove slab from tray, cut as you like into squares, bars or candy-sized pieces.
  7. Eat as is or drizzle with dark chocolate and sprinkle with toppings of choice (such as chopped matcha white chocolate, mint chips and cacao nibs).
  8. If wrapping, cover bars with foil first, then secure your cut out printable wrapper with tape or glue.

  1. Love this, especially the Winterfell wrapper! The kids are so gorgeous. Did they trick or treat this year? There is a huge Halloween street party tonight outside of Robin’s studio. The roads are closed off and half a million people are expected. We went two years ago and it is insane. I went down early tonight to see Robin and I met him coming home as he can’t stand all the costumes! Certainly no place for the twins. We miss you all. Love you Dad and Mum

    • Hi Laura! Happy belated Halloween to you! And yes, I love Matcha Maiden! It’s not the only brand of matcha I use, but it was the first I tried and it is made by an Aussie company, but they ship internationally 🙂 I really want to go to Matcha Mylkbar! Have you heard of it? It’s the restaurant started by the Matcha Maiden people. xx
