Soooooo, I often talk to people about matcha and many people want to consume matcha in other ways besides drinking it. Matcha for me, is best consumed traditionally. I love the ceremony around whisking a warm bowl of matcha. BUT, there is also a place for matcha in our food. Many of recipes include infusing which is pretty simple, but nothing is simpler than putting matcha in food and drinks because all the work has been done for you. Matcha being in powder form allows you to be able to include it in everything!
If you’ve read this blog and the recipes in it you probably can tell I’m a bit of a fan girl of Adriana over at A Cozy Kitchen. I one time made these cookies from her blog that were miso white chocolate chip cookies. They are amazing! When I was looking for a simple recipe to get me back into blogging and I thought that matcha would be such a delicious flavor with the miso!
I want you to check out her original recipe because this is such a cool concept for cookie and she deserves all the credit! While you’re there make sure to check out some of her other delicious recipes!
I only changed a few things to get these green goodies!
-I used all brown sugar instead of white and brown
-I used bittersweet chocolate chips, only because I personally am not a fan of white. White chocolate chips do have a nice flavor though with the miso and matcha
-I added about 2 tablespoons of culinary grade matcha from Matchaeologist which is a fav!
One more note about these, Make sure to check them because the bottoms get browned very quickly, adding another layer of parchment paper helped too!
These cookies marry the delicious taste of miso and matcha but with a sweet harmony. You get the bite of matcha but you still feel like you’re having dessert! I think that if drinking matcha isn’t your favorite and you still want to have matcha in your diey, this might be the recipe for you ;)
