Mini No Bake Matcha Green Tea Cheesecakes w/ Dark Chocolate & Pistachios

I'm going to just go ahead and say your welcome right now since I know your going to love me for this divine no bake cheesecake recipe.  A few days back I received the opportunity to contribute a recipe for Nuts.com's virtual summer snack contest and my creative self came up with a fabulous no bake cheesecake recipe using Green Matcha Tea Powder, Almond Flour, Chia Seeds and Pistachios. Well.... look at these fabulous little darlings.




It's no military secret that super foods have amazing health benefits so why not incorporate them as much as possible in your everyday menu. The sky's the limit so get creative because there are gazillions of fun ways to add in seeds and nuts to your time honored recipes. Grandma would be proud of me for this one!




Just think how impressed everyone is going to be when you show up at a neighbor's cookout with these treats or how about superstar chef status when you entertain and bring these out on a pretty platter. Don't be fooled by the color. It's just the Green Matcha Tea and the taste is downright delectable. Just a light hint of green tea taste with a luscious creamy texture then you get that little bite of dark chocolate from the chips. The crust is tender and not too sweet and lastly the crunch from the perfectly roasted pistachios........ Heaven!
