Description

Matcha Sugar Cookies! Your favorite green tea latte transformed into a soft sweet cookie, with more fluffy matcha frosted on top. Vegan and gluten-free!


Ingredients

Matcha Yogurt Frosting (or try this coconut butter matcha glaze)

Optional: Ceremonial Grade Encha Matcha Powder for dusting


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Melt together the coconut butter and agave/honey. I microwaved it for about 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the oat flour, baking powder, matcha, and salt.
  5. Add the coconut butter mixture, and mix to form a dough.
  6. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness, between two pieces of wax paper is easiest so it doesn’t stick.
  7. Cut into hearts using a cookie cutter (or whatever shape you want!)
  8. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350ºF.
  10. Cool completely before frosting.
  11. For the frosting, simply mix together the yogurt and matcha until thick and lump-free.
  12. Frost the cooled cookies. Dust with ceremonial grade matcha powder if desired. Enjoy!

Notes

*I used light agave because it’s pale color and neutral flavor won’t overpower the matcha like maple syrup. Honey would be okay too if not vegan.
