Healthy green tea matcha shortbread cookies with decadent chocolate ganache frosting. (Gluten-free, vegan & refined sugar-free!)
These matcha shortbread cookies are the snack you never knew you needed. Matcha is flavor I stayed away from for a long time. Thanks to green tea lattes at Starbucks, I was never a big fan. The lattes I would find at coffee shops were always too sweet for me. So when I found matcha powder with no added sweetener at my local grocery store, I decided to give it a go.
Looking for more healthy green tea recipes besides these matcha shortbread cookies?
My first matcha recipe was this Healthy Matcha Green Tea Banana Bread (which was amazing btw). If you are looking for something quick, easy with no baking required try these Healthy Matcha Green Tea Energy Bites.
Matcha has quickly become a favorite superfood of mine to bake with. I always enjoy the bright green color but also the antioxidants that green tea provides. Chocolate and antioxidants all in one matcha shortbread cookie–don’t mind if I do!
It’s hard not to love cookies especially when they are stuffed with chocolate and flavored with green tea! These sweet little melt-in-your-mouth shortbread treats are a perfect brunch or afternoon snack. Not to mention they go well with tea, coffee or milk.
