This healthy Matcha Almond Cookie is drizzled with white chocolate for a touch of sweetness and made with gluten-free flour!
Hey guys! It’s Recipe Redux time and this month is extra delicious as we’re sharing small bite desserts to celebrate the 6th birthday of Recipe Redux!
These Matcha Almond Cookies are about three small bites for most, one BIG bite for some 😉
I’m a major matcha fan. Have been for awhile now so I’m definitely loving that matcha has gone mainsteam and more coffee shops are starting to serve it. Have you tried it?
Matcha is a type of green tea from Japan. What sets it apart from other green teas is that it comes in powder form—the entire tea leaf is ground. The matcha powder is typically whisked into hot water for traditional matcha tea or it can be combined with milk to make a latte. Matcha contains at least three times more epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) than other green teas, and because the entire tea leaf is being consumed, we reap all of those benefits. EGCG is a polyphenol that scientists have studied for its potential anti-cancer and anti-viral properties.
The taste of matcha is vegetal and earthy. It’s important to search for culinary-grade matcha for a better tasting product. Baking with matcha has been on my to-do list ever since I ordered a one pound bag of it on Amazon (told you I love my matcha!). Cookies were first up on the list of things to bake. The color of matcha is gorgeous….do you think there’s a paint color named after matcha yet? I definitely want to paint a wall in matcha 🙂For the #matcha lovers: Matcha Almond Cookies with white chocolate drizzle! #glutenfree Click To Tweet
The cookies are made with gluten-free flour, almonds, and are lightly sweetened with honey. Matcha and white chocolate are a matcha made in heaven 🙂 You can easily swap out the gluten-free flour for all-purpose flour if desired.
These Matcha Almond Cookies are best served with a nice, cold glass of milk. Cookie cheers, y’all!
