green tea choc chip cookies, gluten and dairy free

Matcha green tea is full of antioxidants known to improve your immune system, aid detoxification, maintain gastrointestinal health and promote energy. This magical green powder is an acquired taste. I enjoy it with warm water in a green tea latte with almond milk, coconut green tea mango ice-cream or even 1/4 teaspoon in my morning green smoothie.

Call me crazy but I had an idea to add matcha tea powder to a choc chip cookie. I (and the kids most importantly) was impressed with the results… sweet, slightly chewy and delicious!
