Crispy Matcha Christmas Cookies


Here’s a delicious vegan and gluten-free crispy cookie recipe. Enriched with matcha powder and coconut flavor, these yummy cookies are perfect for Christmas.

When I posted my vegan shortbread cookie recipe, a lot of people asked me for an oat flour substitute that’s gluten-free. This recipe has always been a little bit tricky, but it turned out that coconut flour can work too after a few adjustments.

I wanted to make these cookies extra festive, so I used a Christmas tree cookie cutter to shape my cookies like little Christmas trees. I should let you know that this dough isn’t the best dough to cut shapes like Christmas trees or stars out of, but it still works after you refrigerate it for a while. However, if you decide to shape regular circle or rectangular cookies, you won’t have any problems.

Optionally, you can make your cookies look snowy with some powdered sugar.

Crispy Matcha Christmas Cookies (Vegan & Gluten-Free)


  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup coconut milk (or other milk of your choice)
  • ½ cup rice flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ cup desiccated coconut
  • ½ teaspoon matcha powder
  • Coconut sugar to taste
  • Vanilla extract - optional


Mix the soft coconut oil with milk, matcha, vanilla and sugar.

Add the rice flour, coconut flour and desiccated coconut. Mix until you have a homogenous mixture.

Put the dough in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 170°C (325°F).

Roll the dough and cut it into Christmas tree shapes. You don’t have to dock the cookies because this actually can make them crumble. I made shallow holes in the cookies for decoration.

Place the cookies on a baking tray covered with baking paper and bake for 12-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them, because they burn easily.

Let them cool down and enjoy!
