5-Ingredient Healthy Vegan Coconut Matcha Macaroons

5-Ingredient Healthy Vegan Coconut Matcha Macaroons

These 5-Ingredient Healthy Vegan Coconut Matcha Macaroons are the perfect way to use up that matcha powder you have had in your cupboard for a while!
Healthy, tasty, gluten-free, and cruelty-free macaroons…what more can you ask from these beauties?

Super soft, chewy, and naturally sweetened matcha cookies! These cookies require just 5 ingredients (6 if you add vanilla) and taste like a coconut matcha latte!

I recommend using good quality matcha here, not only the cookies will taste better with no bitterness, but they will also have a greener color. You can obviously adjust the amount of matcha to your liking. I went with 1/2 + 1/4 tsp of matcha, which in my opinion adds enough flavor without being overpowering. If you are not used to matcha, feel free to use a bit less.

    Such an easy an d delicious recipe to throw together. I have high quality matcha powder so these turned out absolutely perfect (I used honey instead of coconut nectar and it was fine). Great with my morning coffee- especially since I’m always craving something sweet in the morning. Sometimes I want something different than fruit. Thanks for this recipe!!
