Matcha Pili Nut Baked Donuts

Matcha matcha matcha! We just love matcha flavored anything, so when we decided to combine one of our favorite desserts with our delicious buttery Matcha Pili Nuts- we knew we were on to something. They were also a fun opportunity to tap into our creative side to decorate each donut individually

matcha donuts



  • 1 1/4 flour (all purpose flour or gluten free!)
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Ceremonial Grade Matcha Powder
  • 1/4 tablespoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup Almond Milk (or other milk of choice)
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil (liquid or melted down)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Almond Milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon extract (I use either Vanilla or Almond!)

Toppings: Get creative here!

  • We use a variety of Ecuadorian Matcha Pili Nuts, sprinkles, crushed pili nuts or more! Maybe even a dusting of more powdered sugar

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F

  2. In a medium bowl, use a spoon to stir together the flour, sugar, matcha, baking powder and salt. 
  3. In another bowl or measuring cup combine all liquid ingredients. Make sure to fully melt down the coconut oil to a complete liquid state!
  4. Add to the flour mixture and mix together until you have a thick batter. If the batter looks too dry, add in more almond milk until desired thickness.
  5. Us a spoon to scoop the batter into the donut tray. You can also use the curved side of the spoon to smooth out the top of the batter. I also suggest using a paper towel to clean up the center and sides of the pan around each donut.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Touch the top of the donuts to make sure the donut springs back. When done baking, place the donuts on a cooling rack
  7. Begin mixing all the glaze ingredients together! Sifting the powdered sugar will make it easier to get a good glaze consistency. Mix together until there are no chunks!
  8. Once the donuts are cooled, dip the tops of each donut into the bowl of glaze. Top with whatever your heart desires! We suggest our delicious Matcha Pili Nuts.
