Keto 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 the recipe, now go make it! 

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

Matcha is packed with all those health benefits and we transformed it into a delicious low-carb/keto cookie!  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!

3) Melt butter in a small bowl in the microwave (about 45-60 seconds).

4) In a large mixing bowl, combine Almond Flour, Swerve/Monkfruit, Matcha Powder, cream cheese and melted butter.  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!
