I’ve always loved Matcha Green Tea but it intimated me to bake with it. I finally decided to take a chance and it paid off. These cookies hit my matcha craving. I purposely made them not too sweet, although the chocolate chips make the cookies sweeter than you would expect. If you’re a matcha lover, these cookies are for you! Plus, matcha is rich in antioxidants and boosts memory.

Ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour

2 tablespoons matcha green tea powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup brown sugar (add another 1/4th cup if you prefer sweeter cookies)

1/2 cup earth balance (or preferred butter, melted)

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 egg

1 egg yolk

1 cup chocolate chips

pinch of salt

Directions:

Mix flour, matcha, salt, and baking soda together. In a separate bowl, beat (with an electronic mixer or blender) the maple syrup, sugar, melted earth balance or butter, vanilla, and eggs. Once the batter is light and fluffy, mix with the dry ingredients. Then fold in the chocolate chips. Roll into 1 inch balls. This recipe makes roughly 18 cookies. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Take out and place on wire rack until cool. Enjoy!
