Matcha has been very popular recently, so of course, I decided to hop onto the trend. I’ve seen Matcha used for drinks, smoothies, and various baked goods. It seems to be everywhere on my Instagram feed. So, of course, I was inspired to make a Matcha treat of my own. I got to brainstorming right away, and immediately I had the most amazing idea: Vegan Matcha Donuts! It was perfect! I haven’t made donuts yet for my blog, so now is a perfect time to start!
There are not too many allergy substitutes you need to make with this recipe, so it’s fairly simple to make with just the ingredients you have at home (except you may have to go buy some Matcha Powder). The only substitute is non-dairy milk, which I like to use Califia Farms Oat Milk, but you can use whichever allergy-friendly milk you own. This recipe is dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, peanut-free, soy-free (as long as the milk is soy-free), and sesame-free.
These Vegan Matcha Donuts are absolutely divine. They are light and flavorful and so so so beautiful to look at. And an added bonus is that Matcha is caffeinated, so you can get your caffeine boost in the morning simply by eating a donut! Extraordinary!
