Ingredients
  

  • 1 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 3 tsp matcha powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips optional
  • 1/3 cup powdered icing sugar for coating the cookies

Instructions
 

  • If you aren’t using purchased oat flour, begin by blitzing rolled oats in a blender into oat flour. Carefully measure out one cup of oat flour and pour into a medium-sized bowl.
  • Stir together oat flour, matcha powder, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate small bowl, mix together sugar and melted coconut oil. Add room temperature eggs one at a time until fully incorporated.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Stir in half a cup of white chocolate chips. Set the dough in the fridge to chill for 30 to 45 minutes.
  • When you’re ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Roll small cookie dough balls, approximately 1½ tablespoons of dough. (I have found that the smaller the cookie the better the crackles look in the finished product).
  • Roll each cookie dough ball in powdered icing sugar, covering generously.  Place on the cookie sheet, 6 cookies to a sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow the cookies to fully cool and enjoy!

Notes

  • If you are making your own oat flour, measure carefully. This recipe calls for 1 cup of oat flour after blending,  not one cup of oats before blitzing up. This small distinction can make a big difference.
  • You can dab the baked cookies in more icing sugar if they’ve lost a bit of the crackle look
