Two things that you don't know about me are that I am obsessed with matcha and when I make a batch of cookies I can't just eat one, two or three cookies....
It is that time of year where everything is green for St. Paddy's Day! The online world was flooded with green smoothies, green salads, green cookies and more! In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day I decided to use my favourite ingredient that is part of my daily routine every single day. Matcha. I drink at least one matcha a day as a latte at home, by using my frother to heat my coconut milk, cashew milk or almond milk. It's my instant pick-me-up that's loaded with antioxidants and gives me sustained energy without that nasty crash that coffee brings. On top of enjoying my usual matcha latte, I used matcha in these cookies in the spirit of St. Paddy's Day. Matcha green tea is amazing to use as a replacement for any dyes in baking, it works wonderfully. Ditch the artificial food colouring and use this instead as a healthier alternative that won't contribute to your toxic load. These Chewy Matcha Cookies can be enjoyed all year round, not just on St. Patrick's Day!

So, as you can see these cookies are a tasty little treat without all the toxic ingredients most cookies have like artificial colours, sweeteners and preservatives. I also love that they are gluten free, wheat free and dairy free, which are common sensitivities and allergies for many individuals. Your tummy and your gut will be happy with these as your afternoon treat or dessert after a healthy delicious meal!
Such a simple recipe and the cookies stay moist and chewy for quite a while. That's if they last that long in your house!
In health and happiness always,
