Matcha Macadamia Cookies

Matcha Macadamia Cookies

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!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 egg
  • 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
  • Procedure

  • 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.
