Triple Ginger Matcha Cookies


The ever wise philosopher Plato said necessity is the mother of invention. One day not too long ago, it was necessary for me to use up a relatively large bag of matcha powder, thus the birth of this recipe. Preventing food waste is a philosophy I strictly adhere to in my kitchen. Call me Plato. This elevated twist on the beloved soft gingerbread cookie provides all the warmth of its predecessor yet provokes your tastebuds with matcha's herbaceousness. It's vegan, gluten-free, full of good fats and every other healthy hashtag out there. Happy baking
