This single, soft, matcha green tea flavored cookie cooks in 50 seconds and takes less than 5 minutes to make!
It’s been hot hot hot this week. A few days ago, I was in Europe and freezing. I was longing for the warmer San Diego weather. I guess I should be careful what I wish for…
I can’t remember the last time it was this warm in April or May. I was desperately craving a cookie, but turning on the oven was out of the question. So I decided to make one of my microwave cookies.
I love the lovely hue of green of this cookie. When you bake cookies in the oven, they brown, which muddles the matcha color. But since this cooks in the microwave, it stays a vibrant green.
The cookie was soft, sugary, and delicious. You won’t even break a sweat making it. It’s a perfect treat for one.
I’ve also created a single matcha cookie you can make in the oven, too!
Single Serving Microwave Matcha Green Tea Cookie
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter melted
- 3 tbsp all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp granulated white sugar
- 1 tbsp whisked egg
- 1/4 tsp premium grade matcha powder (see note)
- Whisk all ingredients into a small bowl until smooth batter forms. Line a large round microwave-safe plate with parchment paper. Using a small spatula, scoop out batter into middle of the plate. The batter will be quite wet but you should be able to pour the cookie batter so that it forms a round disk, like a cookie shape or a thick pancake. Smooth surface with spatula if needed.
- Cook in microwave for about 50 seconds. Careful not to cook longer, as it will make cookie hard in the center. Let cookie cool a few minutes before eating.
