Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup matcha powder
  • ¼ cup coconit oil
  • ¾ cup granulated stevia (I use Natvia)
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup shredded coconut

For Rolling

  • ½ cup granulated stevia (I use Natvia)
  • ½ cup powdered erythritol

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and matcha powder.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the oil, granulated sugar, eggs and vanilla extract until well combined.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix well to combine. Once everything is combined gently fold in the coconut.
  • Wrap the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the cookie dough for a minimum of 2 hours (this step is vital in aiding the cookies to hold their shape when baking).
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350F (175C).
  • Use a cookie scoop to scoop out spheres of cookie dough. Roll each cookie in the granulated sugar and then into the powdered erythritol and place it on the baking sheet, leaving enough space for the cookies to spread.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookie crinkles are slightly crispy. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet before moving to a wire drying rack and allowing to cool completely before serving. The cookies will crispen up as they cool, so this step is important.

Notes

This batter is not like a traditional cookie batter. It is extremely sticky, which is why using a cookie scoop is recommended and why resting time in the fridge is required before baking to allow them to hold their shape.
A baking mat with pre-printed cookie circles is handy for having evenly spaced cookies.
