Fun and pretty, matcha green tea cookies that are easy to whip up with 8 ingredients for a simple but yummy sweet treat.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C) degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add the almond flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt and matcha powder to a  bowl and mix until well combined. Use a whisk or fork to break up any clumps of flour or matcha and make sure everything is well incorporated.
  3. Add in the oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Mix well until you get a moldable dough. 
  4. Use a small cookie scoop to create 12 cookies on the baking tray. Flatten each cookie with your hands.
  5. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes then let cool on the pan for 20-30 minutes to firm.


Cornstarch can be substituted with tapioca flour/starch or arrowroot starch.

Let cookies cool completely before storing. Store in a sealed container at room temperature for up to 5 days, in the fridge for 1 week or freeze for up to 4 months. They’ll get softer the longer they’re stored but they’re still yummy!
