What is matcha?
Have you try matcha before? It is with a subtle taste plus tons of nutritious value behind it.
Matcha is an excellent source of antioxidants, especially epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is a catechin that may help fight the negative effects of free radicals to protect your cells and tissues against damage .Matcha contains high amounts of L-theanine, an amino acid that may help improve your memory and concentration by increasing the production of serotonin and dopamine in the brain.
Hope you will enjoy them as much as I do!
3/4 cup almond flour sifted
1/4 cup coconut flour sifted
1/2 cup butter softened
2 tablespoona of Kintra Matcha Chai powder(Available in store)
1/4 cup monk fruit sweetener (for sugar free/keto)
1/4 cup walnut chopped (optional)
1.Pre-heat the oven to 350°. Put the softened butter (should be room temperature, not melted) in a bowl and whip with a hand mixer. Add the monk fruit sweetener to the butter and whip together with the hand mixer.
2.Sift the almond flour and coconut flour.
3.Add the almond flour, coconut flour, matcha and salt and mix with the hand mixer until fully blended together.
4.Chop walnut into pieces and fold them into the dough. Form bits of the dough into small cookies and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
5.Bake at 350° for about 8-11 minutes or until the bottom edges start to turn golden brown. IMPORTANT: Be sure to let the cookies cool on the existing baking sheet after removing them from the oven for at least 15-20 minutes or more before you try to move the cookies. They need to settle after baking to harden and crisp up. If you try to move them directly after baking they will crumble.
