Easy Matcha Green Tea Cookies Recipe

Tuesday, January 2, 2024
I'm not a consistent tea drinker, but I'm a fan of Matcha. And when I do drink tea, I love to have some cookies to go along with it. So why not combine both and try some Matcha Green Tea Cookies? They're a beautiful cookie with a light matcha flavor. They go well with any tea or by themselves.

Easy Matcha Green Tea Cookies 

Matcha (a finely ground powder made from green tea leaves) is known for its vibrant green color, but did you know it's also extremely healthy for you? Matcha is an energy booster, calorie burner, and a powerful antioxidant. The Japanese have been consuming it for over 1000 years. You can drink it in different forms of tea, but you can also use it in many other recipes, including cookies! Get the culinary grade matcha powder, and you're good to go! If you're not sure which Matcha to use, I recommend Sen Cha's Organic (but you can use whatever brand you prefer).

Here's how to make these fabulous green beauties! You can also scroll below for a printable version of this recipe.

Easy Matcha Green Tea Cookies


-1 stick butter, softened
-2 large eggs
-1 cup granulated sugar (you can use a little less, depending on taste)
-1 cup plus 2 Tbsp flour
-1 1/4 Tbsp culinary grade matcha powder (I used organic matcha)
-1 tsp baking powder
-pinch of salt


1. Cream the butter and sugar.
2. Add eggs one at a time.

3. Sift together dry ingredients in a separate bowl. 
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients a little at a time until the green color is smooth
5. Chill dough at least one hour (or over night). 
6. Preheat oven to 325 degrees 
7. Roll dough (or use cookie scoop) into small balls and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper (if you don't have parchment paper you might want to spray your sheet lightly with cooking spray, as my cookies did stick a little) 
8. Bake 12-15 minutes or until bottom of cookie is lightly browned 
9. Let cool on a baking rack. 

Sprinkle with powdered sugar if you prefer an even sweeter cookie!

*Note that you can add more or less matcha powder, depending on the flavor you want! I don't think these had an overwhelming matcha flavor as is.
