One of my great fellow blogger friends, Miryam from EatGood4Life.com just recently published her very own cookbook, The Healthy Matcha Cookbook!  Miryam is both a food blogger and Registered Dietician, and she incorporates her knowledge into every single one of her recipes.  She’s been blogging for quite a few years now and has a ton of healthy recipes on her blog.

The second I got a copy of her cookbook in the mail, I flipped through it and bookmarked about 30 pages with recipes I wanted to try.  Since I had already made a batch of Healthy Matcha Green Tea Sugar Cookies, I had to make the Cream Cheese Spread (pg. 12) to make Double Matcha Cookie Sandwiches.

    This sounds really delicious.

  5. This looks great! Anyway what would be the shelf life of this recipe? I’d like to make more so that I won’t have to make it every time. So how long will this last in my fridge if ever?

    • I said to store leftovers any in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks… but, I’m sure it can last longer because nothing in this recipe expires very quickly. To double check, refer to the expiration date on your cream cheese, matcha and maple syrup 🙂
