Here at Numi, we love matcha. We mean really love it. This Japanese stone-ground green tea is vibrant, flavorful, and packed with antioxidants. It’s also incredibly versatile – delicious in tea form, or in smoothies, cookies, cocktails, cakes… the list goes on (we have a collection of matcha recipes here).
We use organic Ceremonial Matcha in this recipe; Ceremonial Matcha is the finest grade and quality of matcha out there, packed with delicious green tea flavor.
These homemade donuts are a healthy alternative to the real deal; they are baked instead of fried. They have matcha baked into the donut itself, and more matcha glazed on top. A matcha made in heaven, as we like to say! They can also easily be made vegan, if you remove the egg from the glaze. It’ll just be a little thinner.

In good health!
- For doughnuts:
- 1¼ cups whole wheat pastry flour (or all-purpose flour)
- ¼ cup coconut sugar (or another granulated sugar)
- 1 tablespoon Numi Ceremonial Matcha Powder
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup unflavored soy or almond milk
- ¼ cup coconut oil (liquid state)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- For matcha glaze:
- 1 large egg white
- 2C powdered sugar
- 2 tsp Numi Ceremonial Matcha
- ¼ tsp salt
- splash of vanilla extract
- 2-3T water, or as needed
- For the donuts:
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly oil a standard donut pan.
- In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, matcha, baking powder, and salt.
- In a separate bowl or liquid measuring cup, stir together the milk, coconut oil, and vanilla.
- Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until fully mixed and a thick batter forms.
- Pipe or spoon the batter into the doughnut cavities. Place the pan into the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the tops spring back when lightly touched.
- Remove the pan from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
- For the glaze:
- Whisk together egg whites, sugar, matcha, salt and vanilla.
- Whisk in 1 tablespoon of water and continue to add 1 teaspoon of water at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
- When the doughnuts are cool, dip the top half into the glaze and return them to the rack until the glaze sets. Dip them twice for a thicker consistency.
