Matcha Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients
– 1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil
– 1 tsp. vanilla extract
– 1/3 cup organic sugar OR 6-8 drops of stevia
– 1 large ripe banana, mashed
– 1 cup gluten-free flour
– ½ tsp. baking powder
– ¼ tsp. sea salt
– 1 Tbsp. high-quality matcha powder
– 1 cup organic rolled oats
– 1 cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips or sugar-free chocolate chips

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 325° F.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk the gluten-free flour, baking powder and salt together. Set aside.
3. In a large baking bowl, add unrefined coconut oil, vanilla and sugar (or stevia if making sugar-free), whisk well to combine. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl as necessary. Mix in the mashed banana, whisking until well incorporated.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and whisk until they’re combined. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the oats and chocolate chips. Sprinkle in your sifted matcha powder and fold into cookie dough using a rubber spatula.
5. Chill the cookie dough in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
6. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Use a tablespoon to scoop out 1½-inch dough balls, placing them about 1 inch apart on the baking sheet.
7. Bake until slightly golden on top, about 10-13 minutes.
8. Cool on the sheet for 5 minutes before transferring the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
