- Gluten Free flour - make sure this is plain flour not self raising flour as this will result in a cakey cookie.
- Dairy Free Butter – This needs to be dairy free block butter as it has less water content then the spread form which will reduce how much the cookies spread.
- Caster sugar – I like to use caster sugar in my cookies which is just very refined sugar. So if you can’t find caster sugar I’d recommend using refined or normal granulated sugar.
- Brown sugar - this helps make these chocolate chip cookies chewy and prevent the cookies from spreading too much when baking.
- Chocolate- dairy free white chocolate.

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retains heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.
For this recipe you’ll need a Flat baking tray, this is the one I use, and I use it all the time, which I line with greaseproof/parchment paper

Top tip making matcha cookies easy
Although this cookies quick recipe is super simple to make, here are just a few expert tips I'd recommend:
For uniform cookies weigh the dough balls individually making sure they weigh the same - I’ve found 115g was perfect for 6 cookies
Use chopped chocolate in place of chocolate chips to create pools of chocolate in your cookie, you may also use chocolate chips for more texture.
