Easy Matcha Cookies


  • ½ teaspoon butter, or as needed
  • 4 ounces unsalted butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup fine sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dark rye flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons matcha powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a baking sheet with ½ teaspoon butter.
  2. Beat 4 ounces butter in a stand mixer on Medium until softened, about 30 seconds; add brown sugar and fine sugar and continue mixing for about 2 minutes. Beat egg and vanilla extract into the butter mixture for about 1 minute.
  3. Sift rye flour, all-purpose flour, matcha powder, baking soda, and salt into a bowl; gradually add to the butter mixture while beating on Medium until a dough comes together.
  4. Divide and roll dough into 16 balls and flatten them until they look like discs; arrange onto prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until beginning to brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
Mealthy tip:

You may substitute other whole-grain flours if you can’t find dark rye flour. If you prefer to add a little sweetness, roll the cookies in sugar before flattening them into discs. For even more matcha flavor, sandwich the cookies around a scoop of green tea ice cream!
