  • 4 tablespoon salted butter melted
  • ½ whole egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoon light brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • ¼ C granulated cane sugar
  • ½ C all-purpose flour + more as needed
  • 2 tablespoon almond flour optional
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon high-quality culinary grade matcha
  • ¼ C matcha chocolate chips + extra for the tops


  • Preheat oven to 350°F/177°C.
  • In a large glass bowl, add the melted salted butter, egg, and sugars. Whisk until everything is combined.
  • Add the flour, almond flour (if using), baking soda, and matcha to the butter mixture and use a spatula to mix until it forms a dough.
  • If you press the dough together, it should stick nicely into a ball and not crumble apart. If it appears too "wet," add 1 tablespoon of flour and mix again.
  • Fold in the matcha chocolate chips to the cookie dough and mix until all of the chips are dispersed throughout the dough.
  • Chill the dough in the fridge for 10 minutes.
  • Use a small ice cream scoop to portion the cookie dough into 6 balls, about 40-42g each. Roll the balls with your hands and place onto a parchment-lined baking sheet or cookie sheet.
  • Press in additional matcha chocolate chips on the tops of the cookies and chill in the refrigerator for another 15-20 minutes.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes at 350°F/177°C, until slightly puffy, dry, and slightly golden in colour. Don't overbake. The cookies should still retain a nice green colour from the matcha.
  • Cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet and carefully transfer the cookies onto a wire rack to cool entirely. Enjoy with a tall glass of milk.
