Single Serving Matcha Cookie

This single-serving matcha cookie is an easy treat that takes five minutes of prep and ten minutes to bake. It’s crispy, chewy and an easy way to get a cookie fix without making a big batch of cookies.

I really enjoy making single-serving desserts and recently I shared a microwave matcha cookie and wanted to follow-up and share a baked matcha cookie version, too. It has a very different texture and takes just a little longer since you have to wait for the oven to preheat to bake it.

It’s really nice to make just a single cookie when you get a craving because making a whole batch can be a pain. Single-serving cookies like this one are one of my favorite ways to satisfy a sweets craving.

Matcha Cookie Texture and Flavor

Like my other green tea desserts, this single-serving cookie is flavored with matcha powder which gives it a pretty green hue. Since it’s just one cookie you only need a small amount of each ingredient to make it.

For a quick dessert, you can’t beat the microwave but as much as I love the ease there are limitations. You can’t get a crispy-chewy cookie in the microwave, which you can in the oven. This oven version has a crispy-chewy texture which I love.


  • Melted unsalted butter
  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking soda
  • Granulated sugar
  • Whisked egg
  • Matcha powder

Just combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth and uniformly green in color. The dough will be thick like a pancake batter.

I like to bake it on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Form the dough into a circle in the middle of the sheet pan and bake it for 10 minutes. I like to cool the cookie for 15 minutes or so before I eat it.

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

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. 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!  

  2. 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.
