Chocolate Cookies Filled with delicious Matcha Cashew Filling, vegan & sugar-free



  • 6 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour


  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp matcha powder


  1. Mix maple syrup, coconut oil & vanilla extract in a medium bowl, set aside
  2. Whisk cinnamon, salt, baking powder, cocoa powder, brown rice flour & tapioca flour in another bowl
  3. Mix well the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until fully incorporated
  4. Let sit for 2 mins to allow the baking powder to react a bit and thicken the batter
  5. Scoop 1 tbsp of cookie dough on baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  6. Bake for 10 minutes at 190°C or 325°F in a preheated oven
  7. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool for at least 15 mins
  8. For thefilling, blend cashews and almond milk until smooth
  9. Add in gently matcha powder until the filling is fully mixed and green.
  10. Scoop the filling into a piping bag with a decorating tip attached (I used a star tip) or just cut the tip of the bag
  11. Pipe some filling on the underside of the cooled cookie (the side touches the baking sheet) and top with the other cookie*
  12. Repeat with remaining cookies and chill until ready to serve**!


* When piping, start from the center and then formed a circle around the cookie.

** After a while the cashew filling does tend to brown on the edges loose the bright green. If you are looking for presentation I would recommend filling these cookies right before you serve them. If you find that the filling ended up browning a bit just pipe in some more filling over it to hide it!

Organic Matcha Ceremonial Grade - 100g Bag (3.5oz)

Lovely green color powder

First matcha purchase!

So far I have made tea cookies, raw nut/fruit balls, smoothies, and plain matcha with cashew milk and it's all good to me! Don't have much to compare it to but a chain coffee shop latte experience years ago. I learned the amazing benefits that make the cost of matcha well worth the price.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
