Matcha-Coconut Refrigerator Cookies

I'm loving all the matcha-infused recipes these days! Matcha is green tea turned up a notch, and you'll feel the benefits of it -- the calm, yet alert, buzz is wonderful! You might also like this Choco-Matcha Drizzle,or these unique Matcha Recipes

Makes: 24 cookies

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

½ cup gluten-free flour

½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut

2 Tbsp bee pollen

2 tsp matcha powder

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt

½ cup coconut sugar

8 Tbsp unsalted grass-fed butter, softened (use vegan butter for a dairy-free option)

1 large egg

½ tsp vanilla extract

1. Place oats in a food processor; pulse 4 or 5 times. Combine oats, flour, coconut, bee pollen, matcha powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.

2. Beat coconut sugar and butter with an electric mixer on medium speed in a large bowl until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg; beat until incorporated, about 2 minutes. Beat in vanilla. Add oat mixture; beat on low speed until well combined.

3. Scrape dough (it will be sticky) onto a 16-inch-long piece of parchment. With damp hands, shape dough into a 9-by-2-inch log. Wrap log in parchment; twist ends to seal. Chill for 2 hours.

4. Preheat oven to 350oF. Using a sawing motion, cut log into 24 3/8-inch-thick slices. Place slices 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until lightly browned, about 11 minutes. Let cool on baking sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely, about 20 minutes.
