| Posted by | Categories: Recipes, Sweet meals and desserts

Have you ever heard of the Japanese tea called „matcha“? Today, we introduce you to something we consider an excellent ingredient for your desserts. Matcha cookies with tofu bring you a little taste of the Orient. Try this non-traditional no-bake treat, maybe as a side to your sushi dinner.

No bake treats – matcha cookies

There’s no need to bake matcha cookies. Their base is finely crumbled biscuits, natural tofu and matcha tea of course. Our recipe makes about 20 small cookies.

What we need: Directions:
  • 1 package natural tofu
  • 80 g whole grain biscuits
  • 50 g coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. maple or agave syrup
  • 1 tsp. matcha tea powder
  • 50 ml soy milk
  • Vegetable gelatin (we will need about 2 tsp.)

Our tip: using gelatin helps to set the tofu cream so that well-cut squares can be made.

  1. In a blender or food processor, finely crush the biscuits. If you do not have a blender or food processor, put the biscuits into a strong plastic bag and pound out with a mallet.
  2. Mix the finely crumbled biscuits with melted coconut oil.
  3. Press the biscuit mixture evenly into a rectangular container, which we lined with baking paper. Use a spoon to help.
  4. In a bowl, whip tofu with soy milk until smooth and creamy. Add maple or agave syrup and mix thoroughly.
  5. In a small bowl, put the tea powder and pour in about 2 tbsp. of 60-degree water then stir. Then pour into the tofu mixture and mix. A pale green cream will be created.
  6. Prepare the gelatin. Mix about a half-deciliter (3.5 tbsp.) water with 2 tsp. gelatin and let it boil about 2 minutes. As the gelatin mixture begins to cool and thicken, then stir it into the tofu mixture. Pour the tofu cream over the prepared biscuit crust and refrigerate preferably overnight.
  7. Before serving, cut into small cubes and sprinkle with matcha powder.


Matcha tea, by itself, contains large amounts of antioxidants, supports metabolic function, and thus helps burn calories. It also calms the mind and relaxes the body, is rich in vitamins (vitamin C, zinc, and magnesium for example) and fiber.

It contains caffeine and helps in concentration. It helps lower cholesterol levels.

Enjoy this dessert! We believe that this original recipe for no-bake treats will appeal to everyone.
