Matcha Green Tea Chocolate Chip Cookies are a unique twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie, with the addition of matcha green tea powder. Matcha is a type of powdered green tea that is rich in antioxidants and has a distinct earthy, slightly bitter flavor. When added to cookie dough, it gives the cookies a subtle, yet distinct, green tea flavor that pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the chocolate chips.
To make these cookies, you'll need basic ingredients such as butter, sugar, flour, and baking powder, as well as matcha green tea powder and chocolate chips. The dough is mixed together like any other cookie dough, with the addition of the matcha powder. Once mixed, the dough is shaped into balls and baked in the oven until golden brown.
