Ingredients you will need to bake Peanut Butter Matcha Oatmeal Cookies
- 1.5 tsp matcha powder
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 150g sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup rolled oats
Here's how to bake Peanut Butter Matcha Oatmeal Cookies:
Preheat oven at 347°F.
Place rolled oats and sugar in a big, deep bowl. Then sift the matcha powder to remove any clumps. Whisk all the dry ingredients together until combined.
Add in the peanut butter, and crack an egg into the big bowl. Mix thoroughly on low with a handheld mixer just until the wet and dry ingredients are combined. You can also use a folding method with a spatula if no mixer is available.
Take about a tablespoon of dough and shape into a ball. Using an ice cream scooper could also help form balls quicker.
Place on a baking tray, then flatten dough balls with a fork. Make sure to flatten them horizontally and vertically to have an even surface. Repeat until the dough is finished.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Take the cookies out of the oven, and let it cool on a cooling tray.
