Almond Matcha Cookies

Who doesn’t love cookies… especially when they have a nutritional twist. Our almond matcha cookies are also vegan and gluten-free.

Ingredients: (Makes about 12 cookies)

  • 240g Ground Almonds
  • 130ml Maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Baking powder (gf)
  • 1-2tbsp Matcha powder
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp Almond extract
  • 2tbsp Sunflower oil
  • Pinch sea salt

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180c
  2. In a mixing bowl add in the ground almonds, baking powder, matcha powder and salt and mix well.
  3. Add in the maple syrup, oil and both of the extracts to the dry ingredients and mix well until it all comes together to form a dough.
  4. Line some baking sheets with greaseproof paper and with wet hands roll the dough into balls of about 1 tbsp worth of dough per ball. Add them to the baking sheets and then flatten out with a wet bottom of a glass until they are around 1.5cm in thickness. The cookies don’t spread a lot so make sure they are they shape you want them before baking!
  5. Bake for between 7-10mins be careful to watch them as they do turn very quickly and you don’t want them to burn.
  6. Once cooked, allow to cool before serving. Store in an airtight container for freshness.
