Matcha is one of my favorite flavors. In the summer I make ice blended matcha tea in my Vitamix. In the winter I break out my “ceremonial whisk” and prepare the meanest and greenest cup of hot frothy matcha tea you can imagine. This year in the middle of my Christmas Baking Frenzy I had an idea…” Why not make some matcha cookies?”

The flavor contrast is unforgettable. Punchy matcha and sweet white chocolate baked together in a soft and chewy cookie container. I must also say that these make wonderful gifts as the green appearance of the cookie is a true attention grabber.

The color of your cookies will be dependent on the type / brand of matcha you use, if you’d like the most vibrant green color, use Ceremonial Grade Matcha

Matcha White Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

  • Prep time: 15 minutes
  • Cook time: 9 minutes
  • Serves: 10 Cookies


  • 1¼ Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Matcha Powder
  • ½ Cup Unsalted Butter, room temperature
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ Teaspoon Salt
  • ⅓ Cup Granulated Sugar
  • ⅓ Cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Cup White Chocolate Chips


  • 1)

    Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment or a silpat.

  • 2)

    In a large bowl, add 1¼ Cups of All Purpose Flour, 2 Tablespoons Matcha Powder (use 1 Tbs for a more subtle flavor), ¼ Teaspoon of Salt, ½ Teaspoon of Baking Soda and mix well with a whisk.

  • 3)

    In your mixing bowl with the paddle attachment, add ½ Cup of Unsalted Butter, ⅓ Cup White Sugar, ⅓ Cup Light Brown Sugar and beat on high speed for about 4 minutes, the mixture should look fluffy. Add 1 Egg and mix on medium speed until it looks smooth. Make sure to scrape your bowl a few times to ensure an even mixture.

  • 4)

    Add the flour mixture to your mixing bowl, mix on low until the flour is incorporated. Add 1 Cup of White Chocolate Chips and stir with a spatula to evenly distribute the chips.

  • 5)

    Measure out 2oz cookie dough balls or use a 3 Tablespoon scoop and place them onto the lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-9 Minutes, don’t over-bake or the texture will be cakey instead of chewy. Cookies are done when the bottoms start to slightly brown and the tops look set. Let them cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes, then place on a cooling rack to completely cool before serving. Enjoy!

      Hi Maybel, maybe they needed a little less cooking time? Do you have an oven thermometer to check if it’s accurate?

      I just made these as well right now and they turned out with a cake like texture as well. I followed the recipe to the exact measurements.

        It’s possible that the batter is being overmixed, if too much air is incorporated, it puffs up when baking. Are you using a paddle attachment?
