How to make Matcha White Chocolate Cookies?

Directions

  1. Start by whisking together melted butter and matcha powder until well combined.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine almond flour, sweetener, softened cream cheese, and the mixed matcha butter, and mix thoroughly with a hand mixer.
  3. Next, fold in the white chocolate chips and crushed macadamia nuts by hand. Form the dough into golf ball-sized balls, place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and flatten them slightly.
  4. Bake at 325F for 16-20 minutes, then allow the cookies to cool for 15 minutes before handling to prevent crumbling.

Pro Tip

For a quick and easy way to soften cream cheese, simply place it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds at normal power.

Pro Tip 2

To expedite the cooling process, place them in the freezer for 5-10 minutes until they firm up and become easier to handle.

Why are my Matcha cookies Brown?

If your Matcha cookies turn brown, it is likely due to overbaking. To prevent browning, ensure you bake them at the correct temperature and closely monitor their progress. Remove the cookies from the oven as soon as they are done to maintain their vibrant green color.

Instructions

  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Preheat oven to 325F.
  • Use a food processor and pulse Roasted Macadamia Nuts until coarsely chunk and set aside. If you don't have a food processor, you can place the nuts into a plastic bag and use rubber mallet to break into chunks.
  • Melt butter in a small bowl in the microwave (about 45-60 seconds). After the butter is melted, mix in Matcha Powder until dissolved and set aside.
  • 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.
  • Once mixed, fold in the chunked Roasted Macadamia Nuts and Low Carb White Chocolate Chips by hand.
  • Roll the dough into 1 inch size balls and place on a silicone baking mat or greased baking sheet.
  • Press down the dough balls using your palm of your hand to roughly 1/4 inch thickness.
  • Bake at 325 F for 16-20 minutes (ours took 17 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!

  1. I love this and can’t wait to try this recipe. Do you think coconut flour can work out too?

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hey Stephanie! It ‘could’ work, but it’d change the taste and you’d definitely have to rework all the ingredient ratios. Coconut flour is very dense and heavy, so you would have to use less and add more baking powder to help it rise. Unfortunately, we don’t know what the ratios are since we only made this with almond flour – sorry!
