So get this:   Matcha is known for it's antioxidant properties and is often linked to reduced stress in individuals. SERIOUSLY?? Can we just pretend for a moment that these cookies will reduce the stress in your life? I mean, that's a pretty lofty goal from a cookie but I think this cookie can take on that kind of responsibility.

Taking a moment away from all this silliness, these cookies are absolutely delicious. They are gently flavored with matcha green tea; which surpringly tastes fabulous with chocolate. They don't only taste phenomenal but they also hold a rich green color, making them look as amazing as they taste.

    These look amazing and would be a lovely addition to a St. Pat’s day party tomorrow. Can you buy matcha at a place like Whole Foods? I’m just wondering so I can hopefully make these tonight.

    How would these be with mint extract?

    I have been looking for matcha as well for quite some time. Can you tell us what brand & were you were able to purchase it at? Thanks

    These are DELICIOUS! Made them today for my daughter home on Spring Break – wasn’t sure how the green tea would taste in the cookies, but it’s REALLY GOOD. :)

    These are fantastic. Made them last week, all gone. Guess what I am baking tomorrow. Even the super picky husband loved them and a guest.

    I know this defeats the purpose somewhat, but can u replace the almond flour with plain flour and get the same result?
