For the Cookies:
1/2 cup Almond Flour
*1/4 cup Brown Rice Flour

1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
For the Mint Matcha Icing:
1 can full-fat Coconut Milk
1 tsp Navitas Organics Matcha Powder
1/2 tsp each Vanilla and Peppermint Extract
2 packets Stevia
In a large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients. Follow with the maple syrup, stirring well until evenly incorporated into a dough. Roll the dough into a ball, wrap it and refrigerate for at least 30 mins.
Meanwhile, make the mint Matcha icing. Whip all of the ingredients together using an electric mixer or stand mixer until thickened.
