Almond white chocolate matcha cookies

I was reading this book called the Living Gita which is a commentary about the Bhagavad Gita and I came across this passage “If a seeker constantly thinks of food, all the merit attainted by his or her practice will melt away like  a bundle of salt thrown in the river… Too much time spent thinking of food, making food, eating food”. After I read that, I was like “shit!” I am so guilty of this! Anyway back to making of foods – Almond matcha cookies with white chocolate chips. My family’s new favourite cookie. Enjoy!
