You can dip them in milk, sandwich them with ice cream, stack them like a cake, or just simply devour the dough itself.

Can you guess what we’re talking about? It’s chocolate chip cookies of course!

Imagine a batch of toasty cookies fresh from the oven, filling your kitchen with a delicious aroma. That certainly sounds drool worthy to us.

Matcha Chocolate Chips Cookies

  • Preparation: 10 minutes
  • Baking: 12 minutes
  • Total time: 22 minutes


  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda (substitute with 1 tsp tapioca flour if need be)
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp Matcha powder
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 egg (for vegans, substitute the egg with ¼ cup water and arrowroot at a 1:1 ratio)
  • 3 tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup dairy free cacao nibs, or your favorite dark chocolate! We used Trader Joes chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F (175C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil
  2. Mix matcha, almond flour, baking soda + salt in a large bowl until combined
  3. Mix in coconut oil, egg, agave nectar + vanilla extract by hand as electric mixers can get too messy & the consistency can come out slightly different
  4. Mix the chocolate chips into the dough until they are evenly distributed
  5. Arrange, evenly apart, spoon-sized round balls of dough on the prepared baking sheet
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes and let your cookies cool before enjoying or storing*

*Store in a closed container. The cookies will last for about 5-7 days refrigerated and about 3-4 days in open air.

Matcha Choc Chips Cookies is made in Paleo-style. It's sugar and gluten-free, makes it healthier and still the delicious treats for you and loved ones

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.
