If you love cookies and love matcha (or is your first time trying matcha), here's why I think you'd love these cookies... they're:

  • vegan, gluten free & oil-free dairy-free
  • easy and fast to make
  • the perfect amount of matcha to taste its beautiful flavour but without the bitterness 
  • crispy on the edges and soft and crumbly toward the centre (we're talking melt-in-your-mouth)
  • perfect for an afternoon tea, snack or even dessert!
