2016 has been the year of Matcha! Right from Instagram to Pinterest, our social media timelines were taken over by delicious treats made with this Japanese delight. Matcha is essentially powdered Japanese green tea. It is traditionally served hot and is known for its major health benefits.

Check out some of the favourite matcha delights that caught our fancy!

I used matcha for the green color, these gluten-free cookies are so delicious and so easy to make! Hope you are having a wonderful Monday!?? Ingredients: 2-3 cups all purpose gluten-free flour, 1/4 cup peanut butter, 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted), 1 cup coconut sugar, 1/2 cup aquafaba (water from a can of chickpeas), 1 tsp baking powder, 5 tbsp @we.are.cultured "Pure-Ma-Cha" (matcha) + 2 tbsp water (mixed) Mix coconut oil, sugar, peanut butter and aquafaba until well combined. Add baking powder and mix again until combined. Start adding flour until a dough forms and add the matcha mixture (add it in different quantities for an ombré effect) bake at a preheated oven at 375f(190c) for 8 minutes. Enjoy!??
