Matcha White Chocolate Cookies


Matcha is a finely ground powder, processed from green tea. It seems to be very on trend right now, and you’ll find it to be an available flavour in smoothies, coffees and bliss balls at your local cafes or farmers markets.

How could you resist consuming something that is bright green? Plus, matcha-flavoured anything is a favourite in the instagram world, so snap your fluorescent meal and wait for the likes to roll in.

Matcha has a distinct, mildly sweet flavour, that may take a little getting used to, and a great way to introduce this antioxidant-rich powder into your life is through a biscuit.

These cookies are made for eating when you’re happy, or when you’re sad, or if you’re seeking a sweet treat to cry into when you realise how big your workload is. They’re not healthy per se, but are a great snack to have in moderation if you really are craving something sweet.
