If you love green tea,  or want to limit your coffee intake, try this magic powder! Great as a drink, and is perfect to use in smoothies, as well as baking. Which brings us to the donuts :)

This recipe makes anywhere from 6-12 donuts depending on how high you fill your tins. 

What you'll need :

Donuts

1 1/4 cups of all purpose flour

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. pink salt

2-3 tsp. matcha powder

2/3 cup melted coconut oil

1/2 warm nut milk ( I used soy )

1 chia seed egg

1/2 tsp. white vinegar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Glaze

2 cups powdered sugar

3-5 tbs. rose water

Pre-heat oven to 350 and grease your tin.

Combined all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix.  Heat on low, milk and coconut until melted. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients into wet, do not over mix!

Pour batter into a pipping bag or gallon baggie and fill your tins ( you can also use a  muffin tin with tinfoil if you do not have a donut tray, just google donut pan diy! ) 

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Set aside and let cool.

While your donuts are cooling you can now make the glaze!

Add rose water and powdered sugar into a bowl until desired thickness is reached. If you want your icing to have a color you may add some red food dye, or matcha if you want it green!

Garnish with dried rose, matcha powder and powdered sugar. Enjoy!

Dip donuts into the bowl of icing and allow excess to drip off. Garnish with dried rose, matcha powder, and powdered sugar!
