This is classic New York cheese cake with a Japanese twist. I got the Nutty Rice Cereal for the crust at my local health food store. If you can't find it, any sort of puffed rice cereal should work (though the less ingredients that are in it, the better). A more traditional cheese cake crust could also be used, but I believe that the rice compliments the green tea far better than graham crackers.
My mom always liked coming up with extremely healthy meals for my brother and I when we were kids. This slightly modified version of her muffin recipe is one of my favorites. The types of nut butter and flour used can be changed to taste and the blueberries can be replaced with other berries, chocolate chips, or whatever you prefer.
This is a popular snack in China and Japan. The buns are great right out of the steamer and can also be saved in the fridge for several days and reheated or eaten cool.
Extra azuki paste can refrigerated for about a week, frozen, or used as a spread.
I got the recipe for the buns themselves from a RecipeZaar recipe by Ms. See. The azuki paste is a modified version of a recipe I found on About.com
Prep & Cooking time do not include the time taken to make the azuki paste.
