These absolutely mouth-watering little cookies are nutritious, packed with healthy yummies, and are gorgeous to look at. They’re just the thing for at-home healthy snacks, or to take to a get-together to impress everyone.

The matcha green tea powder used in these chewy cookies has tons of health benefits. Let’s begin with the fact that it’s jam-packed full of antioxidants, which are the incredible nutrients and enzymes responsible for fighting against loads of illnesses and chronic diseases, such as macular degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and certain types of cancer.
In addition, matcha tea powder helps your skin to look better (those antioxidants again—they reduce the rate at which skin ages). Matcha rids your body of chemical toxins and heavy metals, as well as assists in weight loss by burning a heck of a lot more calories than normal.
Matcha is also an immune system booster and gives you a huge kick of energy, but keeps you calm and relaxed. This is why it’s very popular to have matcha before work hours.
So give these delightful matcha cookies a go, and see how great they make you feel!
