Single Serving Matcha Cookie

Following up on my microwave matcha cookie, I also tested out making a baked version. As much as I love the ease of the microwave, there are limitations. You can’t get a crispy chewy cookie in the microwave, which you can in the oven.

This giant singe cookie has crispy edges and a chewy middle. I love how perfectly round it came out. I only wish the green color didn’t brown so much, but that’s inevitable when baking. I still love how this cookie tasted.

This cookie was quite satisfying and even big enough for sharing. It only takes five minutes of prep work and ten minutes to bake.

Single Serving Matcha Green Tea Cookie

Servings: 1
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
This giant singe cookie has crispy edges and a chewy middle.


  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp granulated white sugar
  • 1 tbsp whisked egg
  • 1/2 tsp matcha powder


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Add all ingredients into a small bowl and mix with a whisk until smooth batter forms that is uniformly green. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or a silpat mat. Using a small spatula, scrape batter into the middle of the baking sheet. The batter will be thick, like pancake batter, but you should be able to make a perfect circle of batter in the center of your baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until edges turn a light brown and center is set. Let cookie cool on sheet about 15-30 minutes before removing and eating.

  1. Where did you purchase the green tea powder & how much was it? Do have have cheaper alternative matcha powder brands you like?

    • Nijiya, Marukai and Mitsuwa all have it for about $10 for the canister. Unfortunately I have not found any cheaper alternative. I’ve tried quite a few others but when used for baking, the green fades to a brownish yellow.

  2. Have you made a larger batch of these cookies?  I would love to make these for a party and wanted to see if you have the measurements for a larger batch!  Love your site!
