Turn your cookies into clean, green, antioxidant machines with matcha powder! Matcha has a naturally vibrant green color, plus powerful anti-inflammatory and detoxifying effects in the body—just be sure to choose a high-quality matcha powder for maximum benefits. These cookies are deliciously cakey and gluten-free thanks to the oat flour, with an irresistible crunch from the rich macadamia nuts!
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter or coconut oil (melted)
1/2 macadamia nuts roughly chopped
1 Tbsp matcha green tea powder
1.5 cups oat flour
pinch of salt
1/4 cup sweetener of choice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Whisk together wet ingredients in one mixing bowl and dry ingredients in a separate mixing bowl. Sift dry mixture to remove any large clumps.
Add dry mixture to wet. Stir in chopped macadamia nuts.
Chill dough in the fridge for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Using a cookie scoop (I used a regular-sized 4-teaspoon scoop), portion cookies and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Flatten each cookie slightly with hands.
Bake 10-12 minutes. They will lightly brown around the edges, but not much!
Allow to cool on a baking rack.
Yields ~22 cookies.
