These delicious healthy matcha oat cookies are bursting with flavour and have a lovely soft centre!
I absolutely love matcha and white chocolate together and, although I already have a White Chocolate Matcha Cookie recipe, when I started creating healthier cookie recipes using oats I knew I wanted to create one this flavour. Essentially this is my original matcha cookie recipe I have simply merged with my Healthy Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies to create a gorgeous nutrient dense cookie packed full of flavour.
The colour from the matcha will not be as dramatic as it is in my other recipes due to the coconut sugar, rather than a brighter shade of green it will be a little bit murky, (appetising I know), so if you were hoping for a more vibrant green you will be better off using my original matcha cookie recipe linked above.
I use a mixture of gluten free oats and gluten free flour in this recipe but if you wanted you could make these using just oats. Simply omit the flour and use 175g of oats instead of the amount noted. Personally I much prefer the texture that the addition of gluten free flour lends to these. In order to prepare the oats you will need to blitz them in a food processor or blender for a few minutes until they take on a fine, powdery consistency.
Rather than using chocolate chips in this recipe I actually prefer to chop a bar of dark chocolate into chunks and use that so the pieces of chocolate are bigger. I tend to add most of the chocolate into the batter and hold half a handful back to scatter across the top once baked, however, you can just throw them all into the batter if preferred.
I usually make six cookies from this recipe but you could make more depending on the size. Use a tablespoon or ice cream scoop to scoop out evenly sized chunks of batter, roll them into balls and place them on a lined baking tray roughly two inches apart. Press down gently on each ball to shape them into discs.
When you remove these from the oven, bash the tray a couple of times against a surface that the heat won’t damage to help the cookies flatten a little bit more. If any of the cookies are a funny shape, you can use the back of a spoon to help shape the cookies into perfect circles while they are still hot. Allow to cool completely before removing from the tray. These cookies will last for five days in an airtight container.
