Pumpkin Matcha Cookies

nutribullet gluten free pumpkin matcha cookies with matcha frosting

It’s that time of year again, where it seems like EVERYTHING has a little bit of pumpkin spice dusted over it. You may roll your eyes at the sight of yet another pumpkin smoothie recipe, pumpkin pie or pumpkin flavored salsa, but pumpkin does have a lot of benefits to its consumption. Just one cup of fall’s favorite squash has over 200 percent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin A, which is important for eyesight protection, along with 3 grams of fiber and only 49 calories.

So imagine combining all the benefits from pumpkin with the benefits from matcha. Matcha powder, which is the highest quality powdered green tea available, has been said to have countless benefits, including the ability to boost metabolism, lower cholesterol and prevent disease by delivering a bevy of antioxidants to our bodies. This delicious gluten and grain free recipe is a healthy Halloween treat your friends and family won’t get enough of!

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a NutriBullet blender or food processor, pulse together the almond flour, matcha powder, salt and baking soda.
  • Next, mix in the melted ghee, agave and vanilla until the dough starts to come together.
  • Use a cookie scoop or a spoon to make about 1 tablespoon sized balls and add them to a lined baking sheet.
  • Press into the center of each ball with your thumb to make it a slightly round shape.
  • Bake in the oven for 9 to 10 minutes.
  • Take them out and let them cool on the baking sheet.
  • For best results, let them cool in the refrigerator for one hour. While this is happening, take a small bowl and mix the remaining ingredients to make the frosting. After one hour has passed, frost the cookies and dust with pumpkin pie spice.
  • Enjoy!
