Soft and chewy coconut & matcha cookies that are vegan, gluten-free, and naturally sweetened!

  • Yield: 8 small cookies

INGREDIENTS

  • 2/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 and 1/4 tsp matcha powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut nectar (or agave syrup)
  • 4 tsp melted cocoa butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 200°F (90°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the shredded coconut, almond flour, and matcha powder.
  3. Add the coconut nectar, melted cocoa butter, and vanilla extract. Using a wooden spoon, mix for about 1 minute, or until it forms a slightly sticky paste. You can also use your hands to mix.
