Matcha Green Tea Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love matcha!
I love matcha drinks, baked goods, and snacks! You can find a little more information about matcha here in my Matcha Bundt Cake recipe. These matcha cookies are soft and delicate! They have the right amount of balance in sweetness and bitterness of matcha. You can be versatile with the type of chocolate in this recipe by replacing them with white chocolate or caramel chocolate chips. I recommend using matcha that is good quality, sourced from Japan, and from a reputable brand.  I hope you enjoy this delightful treat!
