PWO Matcha Macadamia Cookie with Blueberry Icing

Day 5: Hello monster cookie! This colourful cookie sandwich makes me happy – PWO Matcha Macadamia Cookie with Blueberry Icing. It was much more cake like than cookie, but that’s fine by me. I ate this bad boy with a fork. I regularly drink Matcha green tea powder, but it is also a fun ingredient to bake with. I love the taste & the colour is so fun! I use DōMatcha™, here are some of the health benefits:

  • Raise your energy level for up to 6 hours with no negative side effects
  • Induce a state of calmness and mental alertness
  • Boost metabolism by 35 to 40% in regular consumers and help control body weight
  • Contain up to 137 times more of the potent antioxidant EGCG than steeped green tea
  • Help regulate healthy blood sugar levels
  • Support healthy cholesterol levels within a normal range
  • Act as a strong blood detoxifier and alkalizer
  • Support healthy teeth and gums

Now get yourself some!

Cookie Ingredients:

  • 2 T Quinoa Flour
  • 1 t Matcha Powder
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 1 t Baking Powder
  • 1 t Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Macadamia Nuts Crushed
  • 2 T Apple Sauce (unsweetened)
  • 1 t Xanthm Gum
  • Stevia

Icing Ingredients:

  • Blueberries
  • Plain 0% Greek Yogurt

Instructions:

  1. Crush up macadamia nuts & combine cookie ingredients.
  2. Let sit for a minute to let xanthm gum do its job and thicken the mix up.
  3. Form into 2 cookies and bake at 350 for 10ish minutes.
  4. For the icing I used frozen blueberries (TIP – make sure to use defrost settings instead of heat on a microwave, makes for less mushiness.) Make sure that there is no sugar added when buying frozen fruit.
  5. Mix the blueberries with the yogurt and admire the beautiful swirls of purple. I love this colour as well.
  6. Ice up your cookies & eat with a fork, unless your ready to get down and dirty with your monster cookie.
