Happy St. Patricks Day! Hope you all have a fabulous day! I’m most likely out watching the parade in Cork City, my first Paddy’s Day in Ireland. It’s gonna be grand!
I wanted to make something green, and while everyone was making the shamrock shake, I decided to go a different route. It’s not really ‘Irish’ at all, but who tea is a big deal here so figured I’d grab some matcha green tea powder and make some cookies!
Going into this recipe, they looked amazing. I had whipped them up, cooled them down and was really happy when I threw them in the oven. However when they came out, they didn’t turn out like the traditional matcha cookies that are light green – these are more of a dark green but they tasted AMAZING.
I have a feeling it’s the almond flour that made them a bit darker, but it doesn’t matter. I really loved them and I’m not even a big fan of tea!
I think the best part of these cookies are the white chocolate syrup I incorporated into the dough. I forgot to grab some sugar substitute while I was out, so I added a few tbsp of Skinny Syrup and it was just perfect!
Hope you guys enjoy these as much as I do!
In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, matcha powder and white chocolate syrup.
Once mixed thoroughly, incorporate the almond flour, xanthan gum and baking soda.
Chill for minimum 30 minutes.
Divide the dough into 10 balls.
Lightly flatten each ball with the palm of your hand and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 350°F / 175°C for 12 minutes.
Cool and enjoy!
This makes roughly 10 cookies.
