Vegan donuts, full of antioxidant-rich matcha powder, topped with a chocolate drizzle. This is what we’ve been snacking on this week.
Since I obtained a donut pan a few months ago, I’ve certainly been giving it a workout. (Check out these beet donuts and these lemon poppyseed donuts…). I think I’ve finally perfected the right combination of ingredients to make sweet, moist and fluffy vegan donuts – and these are gluten free & refined sugar free too, woohoo!
Some other ways that I’ve been enjoying Your Tea matcha powder lately:
- matcha latte with almond milk
- green smoothies with matcha (pineapple, banana, water and matcha powder was delicious!)
- matcha protein balls (recipe adapted from the Your Tea Matcha Guide Book, contained in their matcha gift packs)
And of course, these matcha donuts…
- 1 cup buckwheat flour
- 2 tbs matcha powder
- 1 tsp bicarb soda
- ¼ cup stevia (or other sweetener, to taste)
- ½ cup mashed banana
- 1½ tbs coconut oil, melted, plus extra for greasing pan
- ½ cup water
- 1 tbs stevia
- 3 tbs cacao powder
- 2 tbs coconut oil, melted
- Extra matcha powder to sprinkle on top
- Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.
- In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (buckwheat flour, matcha, bicarb and stevia).
- In a separate dish, combine the banana, coconut oil and water (ensure all ingredients are room temperature to prevent the coconut oil solidifying).
- Mix the wet ingredients in with the dry until well combined.
- Grease a donut pan with coconut oil.
- Spoon the batter into the donut pan, smoothing the tops of each donut with your finger.
- Bake for 15 minutes.
- Remove tray from oven and bang gently against the counter to remove the donuts from the tray.
- Let the donuts cool before drizzling with chocolate.
- Combine all the drizzle ingredients in a small bowl, then drizzle over the cooled donuts before serving.
- Sprinkle with extra matcha powder if desired.
