An activity in the kitchen you can do with the family that will also cure your sweet tooth? Check and check. We teamed up with Nikki Elisheva of My Sweet Belly to share her delicious recipe for vegan raw matcha cookies. 

“Matcha is essentially ground green tea leaves. It’s rich in theanine, an essential amino acid known for alleviating stress. Matcha’s great because it can improve digestion, keep you slim, and boost cognitive function (sharper and clearer thinking). It does have caffeine with effects similar to coffee; however, there is no crash. The body reaps these benefits over the course of four to six hours. Enjoy the cookie as an alternative to drinking caffeine. It pairs great with milk or as an afternoon pick-me-up. Another boosting ingredient is ashwagandha, an ancient medicinal herb and optional add-in for this recipe. It has become more popular over the last year because it’s said to help restore the body back to a state of zen, especially under stress,” Nikki shares. Learn the step-by-step instructions for the recipe below.
