MATCHA SANDWICH COOKIES
This week is extra special! I partnered up with the You Tube star, Olivia Ku of Love Health OK. She is amazing! Her channel is full of amazing healthy recipes. Olivia and I had a blast making this video of my special recipe for Matcha Cookies! Check out the video here and bake these delightful little cookies. You will be so happy you did!
For 2 dozen sandwich cookies
2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup 100% maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
1 teaspoon matcha (This is the matcha brand I love to use)
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, stir together the almond flour and salt. Add the coconut oil and maple syrup. Stir until a soft dough is formed. Add matcha and stir.
Cut two pieces of parchment paper into 8 x 8 squares. Place dough between parchment paper and roll dough out with a rolling pen. Your dough should be about an 1/8 of an inch thick. Place dough in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.
Cut dough into circles using a circular cookie cutter about 2-3 inches wide. Alternatively, you can use the back of a jar to shape the cookies. Place cookies on a cookie sheet and bake for about 7-8 minutes. Remove the cookies from the pan and allow to cool. Prepare frosting.
To Prepare Frosting:
1/4 cup coconut butter
2 teaspoons 100% maple syrup or honey
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon matcha
Mix all ingredients except matcha over very low heat. Color with matcha. Allow to cool
To sandwich cookies:
Spread matcha icing evenly on top of a cookie, and top with another cookie. Repeat until all cookies are lovely matcha sandwiches!
