Matcha Cookies With Cinnamon, Almonds and Chocolate Chunks

These crispy chocolate cookies remind me of my childhood and vivid memories of the magical aroma in the kitchen. I like to prepare them with creamy white chocolate, matcha green tea powder, and finely chopped almonds.

These lovely green cookies with melting chocolate filling are definitely one of my favorite snack recipes. It takes about 15 minutes to prepare them and you've got a fabulous snack to go or a quick dessert for unexpected guests.

The creamy chocolate filling can be replaced with finely chopped figs, apples, walnuts, or hazelnuts for an even healthier option. Whatever you decide, I'm sure you will love it.

For this recipe, I have chosen finely chopped almonds. They are famous for their extreme nutrition values and health benefits. Almonds are a valuable source of protein, fiber, and healthy fats.

Furthermore, these tasty nuts contain generous amounts of magnesium and vitamin E. They are known for the ability to reduce appetite and help weight loss.

These lovely cookies are absolutely delicious and beautiful. For more intense green color and even more antioxidants, you can double the matcha green tea. Another great trick is to sprinkle your cookies with some matcha and powdered sugar. Keep them in the refrigerator up to 10 days and enjoy!
