Traditional Japanese snacks are usually healthly because many of the ingredients are natual and the main ingredient is red azuki beans, known as bean paste "anko".  Yokan is a popular Japanese sweet made from "anko", often served at tea time. Here is a new recipe of another type of Yokan made from white beans and
 Japanese green tea Matcha.

250cc of water
5g of agar powder
30g of sugar

2. In a bowl mix Matcha powder with water. Add white bean paste (shiro-an) and mix well.
