About this recipe

I love these gluten-free matcha and white chocolate cookies. If you´ve never baked anything with matcha, this is an excellent recipe to start with.

Soft and chewy are easy to make and very tasty. I think matcha and white chocolate are a perfect match, the white chocolate gives the perfect balance of sweetness. They also freeze very well.

Ingredients

  • Buckwheat flour: gives texture to the cookies. Due to this flour, the color of the cookies it’s maybe not so green.
  • Corn starch: helps cookies to soft and thick.
  • Butter: unsalted butter.
  • Sugar: brown sugar and white sugar.
  • Egg: room temperature egg is better.
  • Matcha: it´s a powder green tea that it’s also a very common ingredient in pastry. It gives the products a very striking green color.
  • Vanilla extract: add flavor.
  • White Chocolate: white chocolate chunks or chips.

How to make matcha cookies

Whisk together corn starch, tapioca starch, baking soda, salt, and matcha in a medium bowl.

In a large bowl, beat softened butter and sugars until creamy. You can use an electric mixer or a hand whisk.

Add the egg, and vanilla extract and mix well.

Add the dry ingredients and mix well until you get homogeneous cookie dough. Don´t overmix the dough, mix just until well combined.  

Let chill the cookie dough in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.

Drop large teaspoons of cookie dough on the prepared sheets, spacing them an inch or so.

Use your fingers to gently press down on the balls and flatten them slightly.

Place the chocolate chunks or chips on the surface of the cookies.

Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

Let cool before removing.

Variations

If you don’t have tapioca starch at home, you can replace it with potato starch. The relationship is not one to one, 1/4 of potato starch is 1/2 of tapioca starch.

You can also use dark chocolate chips but I think that matcha is a perfect match with white chocolate.

Storing

Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Once they have cooled completely, you can also freeze the cookies in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 3 months. When you are ready to enjoy them, warm them slightly in a medium oven before eating.
