Ingredients

  • cup (110g) almond flour
  • ¼ cup (30g) coconut flour
  • tbsp matcha powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp xanthan gum
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 tbsp (80g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 tbsp granulated sweetener of your choice, I use Sukrin, use coconut sugar to make this recipe Paleo compatible!
  • 1 large egg, room temperature

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 340F (170C).
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer or an immersion blender with a whisk attachment to cream the butter and granulated sweetener together until fluffy. Then, add the egg and mix until fully incorporated.
  • Add the wet ingredients to dry ingredients and, using the same mixer, mix until combined.
  • Form 11 balls (around 30g each) and place onto a lined with parchment paper baking tray so they have some space between them. Flatten them out by pressing slightly with your hands, so you get disc-like shapes.
  • Bake for 10 minutes on a lower rack or until the cookies just start to pick up a golden color.
  • Remove from the oven and let them cool for 20 minutes on the baking tray. Then, transfer onto a cooling rack and leave to cool completely before serving.
