These doughnuts are a tasty, naturally green treat! Both are baked, and matcha green tea is used to adorn them.

Matcha is a powder created from Japanese green tea leaves you’re unfamiliar with the term.

Matcha is bursting with antioxidants since the entire leaf is ground (as opposed to steeping the tea leaves). Because of this, these doughnuts almost qualify as a healthy treat.

Matcha can be used to make lattes, smoothies, and ice cream, or it can be mixed with hot water and consumed on its own. Additionally, it may be used for baking, which is what we’re doing right now.

Matcha has a flavor that I find difficult to put into words; it has an earthy undertone and a slight sweetness that comes through when it is used to make sweets.

Naturally, none of this has anything to do with St. Patrick’s Day; I just thought it would be interesting to create green doughnuts.

I used three different methods to decorate my doughnuts:

  1. Glazed
  2. Coated with matcha-infused cane sugar after being dipped in coconut oil
  3. Finished with a matcha sugar glaze

Make all three or just one!

The day they are made is the finest time to eat these.

Matcha Doughnuts Easy

  1. One typical 6-hole doughnut pan should be lightly greased and placed in the preheated 425°F oven.
  2. Combine the sugar and coconut oil in a medium bowl. Stir in the egg after adding it. Whisk in the nutmeg, salt, vanilla, matcha powder, baking soda, and baking powder.
  3. To completely blend, add the flour and milk in an alternating fashion, starting with the flour. A spatula dragged through the batter should leave an indentation since the batter will be thick.
  4. Put the batter in the doughnut pan with a spoon (it will be thick and sticky). For ten minutes, bake. After taking it out of the oven, let it rest in the pan for five to ten minutes. Place on a wire rack after removing from the pan to continue cooling.
  5. Choose your preferred decoration style by:
  6. Matcha Glaze: To make the matcha glaze, combine the matcha powder, powdered sugar, and almond milk in a small bowl the size of a doughnut and whisk to combine. Each doughnut should be covered in glaze, then any extra should be dripped off.
  7. Matcha Cane Sugar: Combine the cane sugar and matcha powder in a tiny bowl the size of a doughnut. Each doughnut should be dipped into the sugar mixture before being dipped into the melted coconut oil, which should be added to a different bowl. The coconut oil gives the most fried-doughnut-like flavor while also aiding in the sugar’s adhesion.
  8. Matcha Powdered Sugar: Combine the powdered sugar and matcha powder in a small bowl the size of a doughnut. Each doughnut is coated on both sides with sugar, which is tapped off afterward.
