There are just some things in life that are meant to be together - like tea and cookies.

So when we're able to combine both these wonderful things, magical moments happen! Take, for example, these matcha thumbprint cookies filled with a delicious, low-glycemic raspberry chia seed jam. Sweet enough to taste like a treat, healthy enough to eat for breakfast! Winners all around.

Low glycemic raspberry chia thumbprint cookies made with Mizuba matcha green tea and coconut butter

 

Ingredients

For the cookies

1 cup oat flour 

3/4 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

13/ cup coconut sugar

1 tablespoon Mizuba Organic Culinary Matcha

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup melted/softened coconut butter

1 flax or chia seed egg (make it by adding 1 tablespoon chia seeds to 3 tablespoons water!) 

1 teaspoon vanilla

For the Jam

1 cup frozen raspberries

1 tablespoon honey

3 tablespoons chia seeds

1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

2 tablespoons freshly brewed green tea or water 

Method

~ pre-heat your oven to 375º F ~

1) Whisk together both oat and whole wheat flours with your baking soda, baking powder, and salt. 

2) Using a Kitchen Aid or hand-held mixer, whip 1 tablespoon matcha with both your butter and coconut butter until creamy. One at a time, slowly add your coconut sugar, vanilla, chia seed egg (or flax or chicken egg) until completely beaten and incorporated. 

3) With your mixer on low, add your dry ingredients to your creamy ingredients and gently fold until a dough forms.  

4) Make your jam! In a saucepan, bring your frozen raspberries, honey, chia seeds, lemon juice and zest, grated ginger, and 2 tablespoons liquid (water or tea) to a low boil, stirring frequently. When the mixture is nice and simmered down, take the pan off the heat and let sit until the jam solidifies to a nice consistency. 

5) While your jam sets, start forming your cookies! Roll 1 teaspoon dough into a ball. To form the well for your jam, gently press your thumb into the center of your dough. 

6) Spoon a tasty morsel of jam into each cookie. 

7) Bake cookies for about 12-15 minutes.
