Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 21 mins
Servings 18 cookies


  • 1/3 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp matcha powder good quality
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil or grass fed butter
  • 2 eggs or flax "eggs" leave 2 tbsp. flax seeds in 4 tbsp. of warm water for 5 minutes
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • pinch fine sea salt


  • Sift both flours, green tea powder and powdered sugar together over a large bowl.
  • Add coconut oil or butter and eggs or flax "eggs" to the dry mixture and beat until well mix. Add salt and maple syrup and beat for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Roughly chop or in a mortar and pestle break-up the macadamia nuts into smaller pieces.
  • Add the macadamia nuts to the dough and lightly stir in with a spoon. Collect the dough and form it into a large ball. I usually like to cut the ball in half and make 2 logs.
  • Lay a long piece of plastic wrap on flat surface and take one half of the ball and place it on the wrap and wrap it up like a burrito. Rolling back and forth you will form it into a long log. Repeat this with the other 1/2 of the dough.
  • Place both logs on a pan and pop them into the fridge for about 1 hour to firm.
  • Take the logs out and unwrap them. Cut them into 1" pieces and lay them flat on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool.


These cookies can be kept well in a sealed container in the fridge for a week or freeze them for 3 months.
