A dream came through for me with these Matcha Chocolate Chip Cookies. Yes, I know that sounds pretty exaggerated, but it is truthful for I finally found a cookie that matches two of my favourite flavours together!
In these chewy and fudgy Matcha Chocolate Chip Cookies, each bite comes with a pack of melty dark chocolate with a strong hint of Matcha.
You may also be wondering why the excitement for something that seems so basic? Well, is difficult to flavour a bake with Matcha given how sensitive and faint this flavour could be. Furthermore, not all Matcha powders could retain their colour and flavour after the baking process. Hence, I was glad to have found the right proportion of Matcha and the use of culinary Matcha here.
Here comes the important part of my sharing. While this recipe is rather straightforward, the balancing of flavours is not! You will need to add at least this amount of matcha or more. Additionally, it is not recommended for you to add even more chocolate as they can easily crowd out the faint Matcha flavour.
Otherwise, this Matcha Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe is rather forgiving as you can see from the video.
Without further ado, the recipe!
Matcha Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
by Javier Tan September-17-2023
These chewy and fudgy Matcha Chocolate Chip Cookies are a dream come true for fans of both Matcha and Chocolate like myself! Easy and delish.
Ingredients (Recipe can be halved)
3/4 Cup or 200g of Butter, Melted and Cooled to Room Temp
1 Cup or 200g of Granulated White Sugar
2 Large Eggs, approx 55g ea inclusive of weight of shell
2 and 1/3 Cup or 280g of All-Purpose Flour, Sifted
Approx 1/2 Cup or 40g of Culinary Matcha Powder, Sifted
2 Tsps or 8g of Baking Powder, Sifted
Approx 2/3 Cup or 140g of Dark Chocolate Chips
Pre-heat your oven to 160 degrees C and line your baking trays with parchment paper.
Firstly, whisk together the melted butter and sugar until well-incorporated.
Then, whisk in the 2 eggs.
Next, fold in the sifted dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, matcha powder) and chocolate chips.
Shape acordingly to how you would like it. I used an ice cream scoop to assist and placed them an inch apart.
Finally, bake for approx 8 – 11 minutes or until nicely golden brown around the edges while still green at the centre.
Set aside to cool.
Serve and enjoy!

Best eaten within 3 days as Matcha flavour can fade with time. Otherwise, can store at least a week at room temp.
