Matcha (Green Tea) Chocolate Chips Cookies 

Few weeks ago, my daughter and I found a matcha latte mix in a local grocery store. We really wanted to try it but were a little skeptical at first. My daughter thought we could just get a small amount, so that’s what we did. To our surprise, it was very tasty ! And all you need is to do is add hot water or milk ! This has also given an idea to make this matcha chocolate chip cookies ! They are not the best looking cookies, but they sure taste good ! And don’t worry, you won’t turn into The Incredible Hulk after you eat them ! I actually had to make them twice to get the right taste, and as my daughter said, this second time is “matcha better” ! 

Makes about 24 cookies 

  • 120 g unsalted butter, softened 
  • 75 g granulated sugar 
  • 75 g demerara or brown sugar 
  • 1 egg
  • 5 mL pure vanilla extract 
  • 200 g all-purpose flour
  • 7.5 g matcha (green tea) powder 
  • 2 g baking powder
  • 2 g baking soda 
  • 1 g salt 
  • 90 g chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF
  2. Sift together flour, matcha powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside 
  3. Using an electric mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy 
  4. Add egg and vanilla 
  5. Add flour mixture in 2 to 3 parts, mix until blended 
  6. Stir in chocolate chips 
  7. Scoop into one inch balls and place on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper, about 2 inches apart (Alternatively, you can roll them into balls, and flatten them slightly, they will have a smoother surface) 
  8. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes
