Matcha (Green Tea) Chocolate Chip Cookies

I  bought a pack of matcha powder because I was planning to replace a meal a day with a healthy smoothie to help me lose the extra pounds I gained but it wasn’t for me,  I still like to chew my food.

To put my matcha powder to good use and not go to waste,  I made these cookies for St. Patrick’s Day last, we’re not Irish. The timing was just perfect. 🙂

Matcha cookies had been on my list of recipes to try but I was putting it off because I do not think I would like it. I can still remember the taste of  matcha latte – the first and only time I tried it,  thought it tasted like grass.

I was wrong about the cookies, though. I like them! They taste so good. Green tea and chocolate are good together. I imagined the white chocolate chips would make this cloyingly sweet so I opted for semisweet chocolate chips and it was the right decision. My family especially my teenage boy who I thought would turn his nose up on it because the color looks suspect (green means it has veggies, :D)  love it even more!

Happy Baking!

Cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy; add egg and beat well until creamy

Add flour mixture with matcha. Fold in chocolate chips using wooden spoon or spatula

Drop cookie dough by spoonful on greased baking sheet

Bake for 8-10 mins.
