These cookies are very versatile. If you want to impress people at a potluck, mix matcha powder with pure maple cream from Justamere Tree Farm and then there will not be a lack of something to talk about!! It is so good for you and our maple cream and matcha powder mix well together to create a good for you delicious creamy texture.

Did you know our maple cream is vegan? It is only made with our 100% maple syrup. Hard to believe, but true. The taste is too die for and add the pureness of this green matcha powder and you will ineluctably think spring!

You could even frost a cake with this combination. (Be naughty and add some cream cheese and/or add cacao powder in place of matcha powder).  Be ready to hand out the recipe to everyone and bring plenty of cookies to devour, as these cookies will be irresistible!! Imagine no sugar or dairy!

This recipe can also be found in my new cookbook “Taste the Love of Maple”.
