If there’s one thing I never get sick of, it’s matcha cookies. No matter how many recipes I find and come up with, I’m always looking to try a new one. In fact, I spend so much time looking for new matcha recipes I tend to forget that the best recipes are often the simplest. That’s why I’m really excited to share this matcha dessert recipe with the whole Epic Matcha family: Chocolate Chip Matcha Cookies.
Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies. They’re gooey, warm, and taste like heaven. So after seeing how well matcha green tea fit into other cookie recipes, I knew using matcha tea to make chocolate chip cookies was an amazing idea.
The light and refreshing taste of matcha green tea showcases the sweet and savory flavor of the chocolate chips, making a matcha cookie that stands tall above the rest.
The best part? Matcha green tea is full of antioxidants that support your system, so you don’t have to feel too bad about eating a couple of these matcha cookies. See how matcha benefits your life when added to your daily routine.
Chocolate Chip Matcha CookiesPublished: 2016-02-15
- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon of Epic Matcha green tea powder
- ½ teaspoon of baking soda
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- 1 cup of packed brown sugar
- ¾ cup of melted and unsalted butter
- ½ cup of granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 ½ cups of chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
- Grease baking sheets or line with parchment paper.
- Sift Epic Matcha green tea powder, flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
- Beat brown sugar, butter, and granulated sugar together in a large bowl. (It’s best to use an electric mixer.)
- Fold in vanilla extract, egg, and egg yolk until the mixture is light, creamy, and free of clumps.
- Mix flour mixture in with creamed butter.
- Continuing mixing until dough is blended.
- Add chocolate chips and mix lightly until chips are found evenly throughout the dough.
- Use a tablespoon to form cookies, leaving 2–3 inches in between each serving.
- Bake in the oven until edges are lightly browned, an average of 8–10 minutes.
- Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store these cookies in an air-tight container if you intend on making them last for more than one day. To stretch the shelf-life a little further, include a piece of bread in the air-tight container. The matcha cookies will absorb the moisture from the bread and stay fresher longer.
If you’re looking for a more untraditional dessert, try replacing the chocolate chips with different baking morsels. There are plenty of varieties, so take the time to explore your local grocery store (like white chocolate chips!). For those who have simpler needs, omit the chocolate chips altogether to enjoy sweet and savory matcha cookies.
