Almond and Matcha Cookies

almond and matcha cookies

I received such a great response (thank you!) to my recent Apple and Cinnamon Cookies recipe that I wanted to share another sweet snack recipe with you and after a little experimentation, these tempting treats were created! They're packed full of protein thanks to the almond butter and almond pieces. What's more, they incorporate matcha powder (a Japanese green tea powder) which is an ingredient I've wanted to introduce for a while thanks to its antioxidant rich and energy boosting properties. It's an undeniably expensive ingredient but otherwise, the ingredients list is fairly short for this recipe. The end result is a nutty, crumbly cookie with a caramelised flavour that's so good! I really hope you give them a try, particularly as they're so simple to make.

Three great health benefits: promotes healthy skin, energy boosting, good source of fibre

Makes 11 cookies
Store in an airtight container

1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1/4 cup almonds
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1 cup almond butter
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tbsp matcha powder

1) Mix the flaxseed with 3 tbsp water and refrigerate for half an hour until thickened (to make a flax "egg").
2) Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking tray with a silicone mat or greaseproof paper.
3) Place the almonds in a food processor and whizz until finely chopped.
4) In a mixing bowl, combine the coconut sugar and almond butter. Stir in the bicarbonate of soda, followed by the flax "egg" and matcha powder. Add the chopped almonds and mix to combine.
5) Roll the mixture into bitesized balls and then flatten into circular cookie shapes. Place, spaced evenly apart, on the baking tray.
6) Bake for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
