These gooey matcha marshmallow cornflake squares are sure to hit the spot.
Matcha green tea powder is especially effective in baked goods. There’s something about its crisp and vegetative notes that blends so well with sweet things, and very often it gives the treats a lovely tint of green. Plus, adding matcha always takes the guilt out of chowing down on cookies, cupcakes, and breads since it does so many great things for our bodies!
That’s why matcha powder works so well in this recipe for marshmallow cornflake flake squares. It’s easily added, and will give you a huge dose of antioxidants. Its taste is subtle, but if it does come through, it pairs perfectly with the marshmallow sweetness.
Matcha’s antioxidants help prevent horrible free radicals from attacking your body’s cells. When free radicals attack, it’s bad. They can make your skin look older, and their damage has been linked with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, heart issues, and cancer.
But antioxidants literally stop free radicals in their tracks. They prevent them from attacking healthy cells. This is why consuming antioxidants is so important—and matcha powder is stuffed with them!
So try these little guys out! These delightful matcha marshmallow cornflake flake squares are awesome for nearly anything—breakfast, snacks, dessert, parties, guests. They’re so addictive, though, so don’t expect them to last for very long.
