Vegan Matcha Cookies Recipe

By Loving It Vegan

🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 10 minutes


▢ ½ cup Vegan Butter (112g)

▢ 1 cup White Granulated Sugar (200g)

▢ 3 Tablespoons Soy Milk or other non-dairy milk

▢ 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

▢ 2 cups All Purpose Flour (250g)

▢ ½ teaspoon Baking Soda

▢ ¼ teaspoon Salt

▢ 2 ½ teaspoons Matcha Green Tea Powder

Vanilla Frosting:

▢ 2 Tablespoons Vegan Butter (30g)

▢ 2 cups Powdered Sugar (240g)

▢ 2 Tablespoons Soy Milk or other non-dairy milk

▢ 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


1Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2Add vegan butter and white granulated sugar to your stand mixer and cream them together until smooth.

3Add soy milk and vanilla extract and mix them in.

4In a separate bowl sift all purpose flour and then add baking soda, salt and matcha powder and mix them together.

5Add the dry ingredients in with the wet and mix it together with a spoon. Then get in there with your hands and form it into a ball of dough.

6Dust your hands and a baking mat with flour and transfer the ball of dough onto the flour dusted baking mat.

7Roll out the dough to around ¼ – ½ inch thickness. Dip a cookie cutter into flour (so that it doesn't stick) and cut out the cookies.

8Place the cut out cookies onto a parchment lined baking tray.

9Take the remaining dough, form it into a ball again, roll it out again and cut out more cookies. Repeat until your dough is finished. You should have 20-25 cookies (we got 23 from our batch).

10Place the cookies into the oven to bake for 10 minutes. They will be very soft so just let them firm up and cool down directly on the baking tray.

11When the cookies are cooled, add vegan butter, powdered sugar, soy milk and vanilla extract to your stand mixer and starting at slow speed, gradually increase speed until the frosting is smooth.

12Spread the frosting onto the cooled cookies.

13Place the frosted cookies into the fridge for 10 minutes for the frosting to set and then serve!
