The MaaatchaOatmeal and matcha cookies

A heathy oatmeal cookie flavoured with green tea? Si, si, si, si, siiiiiii! Absolutely! Following on the heels of her Miss Oatykins cookies, Madame Labriski strikes again with yet another comforting take on the classic oatmeal cookie, this one bursting with “lush green” nutrition and taste. Quick and easy to make as always, Maaatcha cookies are the perfect example of one of life’s little Labriski pleasures… that you can enjoy year-round. Betcha you’ll be hooked on Maaatcha!

Scrumptious source of stimulating fibre

Matcha, maaatcha, maaatcha! We love your green powdery self... just imagine dressed up as a Labriski cookie... (Everybody’s going to go mad, mad, mad about maaatcha! Hahahaski!)

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  2. Put the date puree, applesauce (or plain yogurt), egg and vanilla extract into a bowl and stir well. Add the salt, baking soda and baking powder, and let it work its magic for a few seconds. (You’ll see a little bubbling effect. My guilty pleasure is to “fold” the dough. You’ll see, it’s going to rise like an Olympic gold medalist!)

  3. Now add the organic oat flour (it was love at first sight, or rather taste, for us!), oats, chia seeds and matcha powder and give it another good stir.

  4. Use parchment paper to line your Labriski sheet (in the Labriski household, nobody calls them cookie sheets anymore – hahaha!) or you can line it with a silicone baking mat. You may not realize it, but there’s absolutely NO fat at all in the dough so if you don’t, EVERYTHING WILL STICK.

  5. Spoon the dough onto the sheet. I personally use teaspoons and create nice big plump cookies. Yummy! (oh, and yes, I also like to taste the raw cookie dough while I’m baking… it’s divine!) If you feel like it, you can garnish by dusting with a little matcha powder… très chic ;-)

  6. Pop them all into the oven for 15 minutes at 350°F (180°C). Your kitchen will be filled with the aroma of lush green happiness. Be careful! You might just fall in love… hahahaski!
