Matcha Mochi Bars

Mochi reminds me of glutinous rice balls that my dad would make at least once a week. My dad and I are big fans because of its soft, smooth and chewy texture. Instead of the boiling method, mochi bars are baked until its crusty on the outside and chewy in the middle. And of course, you can never go wrong with matcha.

  • 400 mL coconut milk
