Servings 22 cookies


  • 125 g (½ cups) unsalted butter (softened at room temp.)
  • 100 g (½ cups) light brown soft sugar
  • 135 g ( cups) caster sugar (golden or white)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 215 g ( cups) plain / all-purpose flour (see notes for self-raising flour swap)
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 10 g (2 teaspoon) matcha (green tea) powder
  • 200 g ( cups) white chocolate chips


  • Pre-heat oven: 195°C / 175°C (fan) / Gas Mark 5½ / 390°F
  • Cream together the butter and sugars until smooth.
  • Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  • Sift in the flour, baking powder and matcha, then add the salt and mix together until combined.
  • Add in the chocolate chunks, stirring through the dough until just evenly spread throughout.
  • Roll the dough into balls slightly larger than a walnut, and spread across baking trays lined with greaseproof paper. Put these into the fridge for 30mins before baking for a thicker cookie.
  • Bake the cookie dough balls in the oven for 8-10mins until lightly golden. Allow to cool then enjoy!


  • You can swap the plain / all-purpose flour in this recipe for self-raising flour of the same quantity, and remove the baking powder.
