Green tea cookies flavored with almond and paired with a creamy frosting.
Lying on a blue mat. In the dark. For nap time.
Who wants to do that?
Not kindergarten me, or any of my classmates (that I know of!)
You’d think my feelings on napping would’ve changed throughout the years, but I remain adamant, that napping shouldn’t be allowed.
My beliefs on this subject were firmly planted on a family trip to NYC. We were only there a brief period and on our last full day, I started to feel really sick. We went back to our hotel. & I did the dreaded – I napped!!
I woke up several times, but couldn’t pry myself out of bed. By the time I finally pulled myself out of my groggy state, the entire day was gone!
Now, I understand your body needs time to rest and recover, but NOT when you’re on vacation in NYC!
Since then, I’ve vowed to never nap! I may be wrong on this subject, but there’s just too much to do & it’ll never get done if you’re asleep!
So, to pull yourself out of the afternoon slump, I propose eating a stack of these Matcha Almond Cookie Sandwiches instead! They feature Aiya’s Cooking Grade Matcha that is specially blended for baking and beverages. I really enjoyed baking with this green tea. It comes in a resealable package and helps create delicious cookies. I can’t wait to bake with it again and try it in a Coconut Matcha Latte 🙂
I paired the cookies with a creamy almond frosting. If desired, you can roll the sandwich cookies in sliced almonds for an extra crunch.
Do you believe in napping?
