Matcha dark Chocolate Chip cookies
If you thought matcha was only for latte, then you haven’t seen the other delicious side of it ;) These cookies are so delicious, the matcha gives it that extra zing. With dark chocolate chips an added addition because why not ;) I try and add matcha to many of my recipes.
I absolutely love Green Tea House organic Matcha powder, their organic premium matcha is certified organic by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and fisheries of Japan and is grown with only natural organic fertilizers with no added chemicals or pesticides. Many other Green tea companies harvest their green teas two to four times per year they lose their taste and aroma, but Green tea house harvest their green tea only once per year.
The health benefits of matcha is absolutely amazing, just to mention a few -
- Matcha tea not only provides vitamins and minerals but it is very rich in antioxidants
- Boots metabolism
- Energy booster
- Anti aging
These cookies are not sugar free, but I have used brown sugar, coconut suagr works well too. I have made big size cookies, you can reduce the size using only a teaspoon size of the dough. Can be even made without the chocolate chips, but would recommend adding them becaause why not :) So perfect when you have that sweet cravings.
There is also summery recipe like Matcha nice cream with chia pudding if you fancy something more cooling :) swap this for ice cream a much more healthier option.
Let me know how you like these cookies, they are so easy to make, less hassle, filled with flavour and very tasty, not to mention healthy too :)
