Matcha White Chocolate Cookies with Almonds

These Matcha White Chocolate Cookies are loaded with ooey gooey white chocolate, vanilla matcha flavour, and topped with a hint of almond. The ooey gooey-ness comes from heaps of white chocolate chunks instead of using standard chocolate chips. I also recommend slightly under baking the cookies to get that soft and doughy centre!

Servings 12 Cookies


  • ½ Cup Butter softened
  • 1 Cup White Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 Large Egg
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Hot Water
  • 1 ½ Cups All Purpose Flour
  • ¼ Cup Vanilla Matcha Powder see note
  • 1 Cup White Chocolate Chunks see note
  • ¼ Cup Crushed Almonds


  • Preheat oven to bake at 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease the pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl combine softened butter and sugar together. Mix well with a fork until mixture starts to become light and fluffy or use a hand/stand mixer.
  • Add the egg, vanilla and salt to the sugar mixture. Combine.
  • In a separate small bowl dissolve the baking soda in the hot water. Then add it to the sugar mixture and mix.
  • Sift in the flour half a cup at a time, mixing well between. Once the flour has all been added, fold in the matcha powder. Make sure everything is combined really well.
  • Gently fold in the white chocolate chunks. Then spoon approx 2 tablespoon of mixture into mounds on the lined baking sheet and press the crushed almonds into the tops of each cookie before placing in the oven. Make sure to leave a few inches between each cookie.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before eating.


I get my vanilla matcha powder from davids tea. Though, you can use regular matcha powder if you want instead.
For white chocolate chunks I just roughly chop up a couple bars of white chocolate from the grocery store.
