  • 4tbsp honey
  • 1tsp vanilla extract

1. Soak the chia seeds in the coconut (or other plant-based) milk for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, line the baking tin with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, combine the oat flour, matcha and sea salt. Once mixed, add the almond butter, chia seed mixture, honey and vanilla. Stir well to combine (definitely use your hands!).

3. Evenly press the mixture into the prepared tin and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden. Remove from the freezer and cut into 16 squares.

4. Eat straight away, dusted with a little matcha powder, or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
