Strawberry Matcha Blondies

Raise your hand if you like matcha! *I fist pump both hands into the air*

Matcha has got to be one of my favorite things in the world! I love the strong green tea taste and how creamy and delicious it gets in drinks. So I wonder why I haven't baked more with matcha.
Matcha is a fine ground green tea. It adds the green tea taste and it's own creaminess making it the perfect ingredient for baked goods.
Many places have begun selling flavored matcha which tends to be cheaper than the real stuff as it is full of stuff other than matcha. However, it still tastes great and in my opinion sometimes even better because you get to have a yummy flavor accompanied with your matcha. It makes matcha just mixed with water delicious as well by the way.

You can find flavored matcha at David's Tea, HomeSense, and Bed Bath and Beyond to name a few.
I used a strawberry flavored matcha powder to get the strawberry taste in this, if you don't have access to strawberry matcha you can use any other desired flavor or plain matcha. 
You can also add a couple drops of food coloring to make it extra green but this is completely optional.

2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the coconut sugar, coconut oil, and eggs until well combined. Add a couple drops of food coloring if desired.
