the inspiration behind these cookies came from matcha powder that i found sitting on my shelf and i thought, “hmm…i want to use this, but how?” the answer came when there sitting next to the matcha was coconut, almonds, and cocoa nibs. how perfect, hence almond matcha cookies were born…oh yeah, they also have a little chocolate on the bottom (just how we like it).
Yes, these cookies are gluten-free, vegan, and raw so just eat them.
