Cream Cheese Matcha Cookies

What if we told you there was a ridiculously delicious cookie that you could eat for breakfast every morning!

A cookie that has the caffeine to wake you up, packed with antioxidants, detoxifies your body and lowers blood sugars.

Well, here is your keto cream cheese matcha cookies!

No really, go make it and brag to all your non low-carb/keto friends what you ate for breakfast!  We’re just joking about the last part!  No need to brag to anyone, but the rest of it’s all true.

Matcha is packed with plenty of antioxidants to keep your cells healthy and repaired while also providing you with a boost of energy without that afternoon crash.

It’s also known to boost brain function among other great benefits!

You really can have it as a breakfast as it packs all the fats you will need in the morning, but we prefer it as a breakfast dessert!

Either way, give it a try and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

4) In a large mixing bowl, combine Almond Flour, sweetener, cream cheese and melted butter with Matcha Powder. Mix well for about 1 minute with a hand/stand mixer. Note – make sure melted butter is at room temperature when pouring otherwise it will ‘cook’ the batter.

7) Bake at 325 F for 16-20 minutes (ours took 16 minutes) or until bottom edges start to slightly brown. Once done, wait at least 10 minutes for cookie to cool down prior to handling. We prefer enjoying the cookies once they have completely cooled down and hardened, which takes about 1 hour, but it’s up to you!
