Whether you're celebrating St. Patrick's Day or any day, these Matcha Green Tea Chocolate Chip Cookies will answer your green cookie dreams! They're taking chocolate chip cookies up to a whole new level. Plus they're gluten-free!If these cookies aren’t a tip off that St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, then you are either not as big a fan of St. Paddy’s Day as I am, or your eyes have frozen shut in this arctic tundra weather.

I feel pretty strongly that green food ought to be eaten all day every day, but for obvious reasons I am sharing these today. They’ve also got me reminiscing on past St. Paddy’s Day debaucheries…

Whether you're celebrating St. Patrick's Day or any day, these Matcha Green Tea Chocolate Chip Cookies will answer your green cookie dreams! They're taking chocolate chip cookies up to a whole new level. Plus they're gluten-free!In my 25 years I have accumulated my fair share of St. Paddy’s Day stories. From infamous green beer food poisoning with Eseids (it totally wasn’t the green beer but drinking it certainly didn’t help) to passing out well before 6:00 PM every year, St. Paddy’s Day has yet to disappoint.

I love any holiday where it’s acceptable to day drink and be in bed at a reasonable hour. I also love coming up with natural ways to colour food, so basically St. Paddy’s Day is my jam. Green pancakes anyone?

I strongly suspect that this year will be no different. Considering I will be celebrating in the heartland of St. Patrick, this is just about guaranteed.

Whether you're celebrating St. Patrick's Day or any day, these Matcha Green Tea Chocolate Chip Cookies will answer your green cookie dreams! They're taking chocolate chip cookies up to a whole new level. Plus they're gluten-free!This year C and I will be visiting our best friends who are currently living in Dublin. When the fantastic four are together, it is always an epic time but when you throw in the whole throngs of people drinking on the streets of Ireland I’m gonna guess that this trip is going to be one for the memory books.

These Matcha Green Tea Chocolate Chip Cookies were made in prep for the trip. I needed to get my green cookies down so I could pack a suitcase full of them for Sab and Sam, and I wanted to make sure that matcha in cookies tastes as awesome as they sound. FTR, they do.

Sab loves her green tea ice cream and chocolate is her faveeeee so these were made entirely for her! I’ll keep you guys posted on how they go over, if I make it out alive…

    Great idea for adding green without the extra dye!
    I’m excited to be in Boston this year for St. Patty’s day but I’m sure Dublin will be amazing. I traveled there briefly whilst abroad and loved it even though it was awful awful weather so I guess that says something! Have a hard cider for me <3 (if that's your thing)

    These look awesome!! I’ve been thinking that I want to come up with a Paddy’s Day recipe with matcha . . . You’ll love Dublin – just soak it all in:) And then go to Gallway for a couple days if you can!! Couple hours away and a nice change in pace from Dublin.

    Green beer food poisoning?! Oh my, what a St. Paddy’s Day experience. I’d be hardpressed to drink another green beer in my life if that happened, and stick to all the matcha cookies! I have yet to bake with matcha and really need to action that plan soon! Love these healthful cookies and can’t wait to try em!

    I would say an IV might be a good idea for surviving St Paddy’s Day. I don’t know about Ireland but I know in the US my med-school friends wouldn’t ever give me an IV after a long night of drinking.

    Also this is the first year in 3 year I haven’t had to listen to people argue via social media on St Pattys vs St Paddys.

    You guys are going to have a blast! Ireland is definitely on my list of places I must visit.

    Also, I LOVE matcha. So tasty. And I’m sure it’s even better in cookie form!

    St. Patty’s Day in Dublin? Now that sounds fun! I always enjoyed celebrating in university, but since finishing I haven’t been able to celebrate it. And this year it falls during the week that I’m training for my new job, so I’ll probably be lame and skip it this year too.

    Maybe I’ll celebrate with this cookies though. I’m posting a matcha recipe this month too, so I have some leftover matcha powder to make these with.
