Matcha Chocolate Chip Cookies

These chocolate chip cookies are soft, chewy, gooey, and with the perfect hint of earthiness from matcha. Might have to say these are one of my new favorite cookies.

To be honest, I used to be completely opposed to the taste of matcha. It was too grassy, flavorful-less, and kind of tasted like dirt. That really gets you excited for this recipe, right? Well, I swear to you that these cookies do not have that taste of all and I can finally say I enjoy matcha.

The taste of matcha isn’t for everyone, but if you pair it with the right ingredients it can be absolutely delicious.

These cookies are soft, chewy, gooey, and very much addicting.

They contain simple, gluten-free, and vegan ingredients, such as:

flaxseed, vegan butter, non-dairy milk, molasses, vanilla, coconut sugar, almond and oat flour, rolled oats, matcha powder, baking soda and powder, salt, and dark chocolate chips.

I have not made this recipe subbing for any other ingredients, so I can not speak on how it would turn out if you did so. But if you do substitute anything let me know how it turns out!

To make these cookies, start by combining flaxseed meal and water to make a flax egg. Let sit for a few minutes.

In a large bowl, add flax egg, vegan butter, non-dairy milk, molasses, vanilla, and coconut sugar. Use a handheld mixer or whisk vigorously to combine until creamy.

Add flours, oats, matcha powder, baking soda and powder, and salt. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to combine until a soft cookie dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips.

Use a small cookie scoop to distribute dough onto a prepared baking sheet. Slightly flat down with the palm of your hand. Bake for 12 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Important! Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
