Had to add about 1/3-1/2c of extra flour for these to make actual dough balls on the cookie sheets. Kids loved them. Definitely cake cookies - light and not too sweet. Won’t use as much matcha next time!
I'm a proficient baker and somehow the texture is all off for these- and HOLY moly is the matcha strong. Perhaps it's the ceremonial grade I used, but the amount is so strong I fear I won't sleep tonight!! So if you have very nice matcha be careful. I think next time I'll try vegetable shortening instead of oil, it's the strangest consistency. I chilled overnight and the oil seeped out of the mixture... I remixed and then baked. I weigh my ingredients so I don't know what went south here. But very good flavor- I used a mix of green and black cardamom (fresh ground) as well.
I love this recipe!! Been making it for about a year or two and have added my own twists to it in regards to extra flavors and they’re always a hit at parties and gatherings! Definitely try it before criticizing it :)
These turned out great! I made this recipe but used 1/3 cup sugar, a 1/3 cup canola oil, added 1 T of maple syrup and mixed the matcha with 3 T almond milk instead of 2 T water. I baked these at 325 in a gas oven (electric at 350 is probably okay) for 7-8 minutes, they might look underdone but they're not. This site isn't allowing me to rate it, but I give it 5 stars!
I've been making these little gems for years! They are so easy to make but leave an amazing impact. According to my partner (who has a big sweet tooth) they are rather mellow in the sweetness department. So they are especially good for those who don't need a massive sugar hit but need something to tide them over at 3 o'clock.
These cookies/ cakes are delicious. I guess im not logged in properly to change the rating. I was hesitant to make these when I saw 3 stars but they're amazing! No dairy! My daughter cant eat lactose and they are so wonderful! Light fluffy flavorful! Yay! Great healthy desert with great flavor without dairy, too much sugar or fat. lovely! We will make them again and again! Easy to make too! Fun.
Why review a recipe when you haven’t tried it? SMH I made these last night and they are great! Quick and easy. I made sure not to overbake so they stayed nice and chewy. If you like green trea lattes from Starbucks, you’ll love these! Plus matcha is SO healthy for you!
I'm not a tea lover but I do am a cookier lover and I like these
These are delicious. I add more cardamom to the recipe b/c I like the flavor and also I added sugar to the top - for Christmas I colored the sugar red which was festive. It's important to know these are cakes not cookies so be prepared for that texture. Do not overcook - very slightly browned is all that should be on the bottom or they will be dry!
Hi there. I would like to use a wholewheat flour in replacement for the all-purpose flour you've written in your recipe. Would this be okay to use?
