Hi.

Welcome to my blog where I document my adventures in food and travel. Hope you have a nice stay!

Chocolate Chip Matcha Skillet Cookie

Chocolate Chip Matcha Skillet Cookie

Alright, everybody. You KNOW I'm all about that matcha life and, obviously, I feel good about overdosing on it all the time since there are great health benefits (increased metabolism, lowered cholesterol levels, yada yada). That's why I was super excited when Motion Matcha wanted to do a collaboration!

Matcha powder can seriously go a long way and I was extra pumped when they sent me a nice bag with enough matcha to probably last me almost the rest of the year 😂  Since I love the stuff so much, I'm going to throw more than one matcha recipe your way, but first up is a skillet cookie I made.

PS. Check out their giveaway (ends May 7) and you could win a year's supply of matcha to make all the skillet cookies you want!

I wish it was greener, but such is the curse of a matcha bake—destined to be green-brown forever.

TECHNICALLY,  it is for two people but, let's be real, you could finish a whole one by yourself because it is decadent AF. I have no regrets about the amount of butter I ingested, but the best part was the slightly crispy crust that came from cooking on the skillet 🤤  

If you want to use this recipe with other flavors, just replace the matcha powder and chocolate chips with whatever you want!

Chocolate on top is optional...but makes it so much better

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup butter (if you use the pre-measured butter sticks like I do, this is 4 tbsp)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp matcha
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 handful each of dark chocolate chips and white chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using your skillet (I used my baby skillet which is 8 inches in diameter), melt the butter in the oven, and then swirl the butter around to coat the skillet before pouring it into your mixing bowl. This will take very little time so keep an eye on it because you don't want the butter TOO hot.
  3. Add your sugars and whip until fluffy and combined, and then add the egg and vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking soda, and matcha powder. Slowly add this to the bowl as it is mixing until incorporated.
  5. Once a cookie dough is formed, mix in the chocolate chips either by hand or with the mixer.
  6. Spoon the cookie dough into your buttered skillet and make sure you're covering the entire surface area of the skillet.
  7. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until it has puffed up and the sides have browned a bit.
  8. Once it looks done and the center is mostly cooked but still nice and gooey, I turned the oven off, threw some more chocolate on top, and let the pan sit in the oven for another 5 minutes for the chocolate to melt.
  9. Take it out and eat immediately! Or eat it slowly so you don't burn your mouth 😂 

If you feel like taking this to the next level, spoon some ice cream on top! Now here's one more close-up if you need the motivation to make this recipe:
