Baked Matcha & Cocoa Doughnuts

You have my permission to be bad today! Well, not that bad cause here's a recipe for a healthy batch of Doughnuts!  BAKED MATCHA & COCOA DOUGHNUTS.. RECOMMENDATION FOR TODAY: GET YOU A DOUGHNUT!  Recipe Below Ingredients: Donuts • 3/4 cup whole wheat Flour • 1 tsp baking powder • 1 tbsp Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (for chocolate donuts) • 3 1/3 Tbsp butter • 5 tbsp honey or agave • 1 egg • 1/4 cup almond milk

Directions

Donuts • Sift the flour, baking powder, and Matcha together and set aside. • Begin pre-heating your oven to 350 degrees. • Allow the butter to come to room temperature and stir it until it is smooth and creamy. • Whisk the honey or agave into the butter until it is well incorporated and the whole mixture takes on a white color. • Beat the egg and add it in little by little until it is well incorporated. • Add the milk into the sifted dry ingredients, mix gently, and then add the butter and honey or agave. • Transfer the batter to a piping bag (a Ziploc bag with one corner cut off works as well). • Using a donut mold (or any circular mold you like), pipe the batter into the mold • Bake in the oven for 12 minutes, lower the temperature to 325 degrees, and bake for approximately 5 more minutes. • Repeat steps 1-9, substituting the Matcha for the Cocoa powder for your chocolate donuts. • Let the donuts cool completely before pouring ganache.

Matcha White Chocolate Ganache 1 After the ganache is ready, pour it over the donuts and spread with a spoon. 2 You can even get creative with the ganache by drizzling it over the donut, or adding chocolate sprinkles. 3 Store in fridge to prevent ganache from melting.
