Matcha Tea Cupcakes (Gluten Free & Dairy Free)

Batter should be very smooth.
The darker ones were made with apple cider vinegar and the ones of the right were made with lemon juice. I prefer the lemon juice.
I made these for St. Patrick’s Day.
I made these for July 4th.

Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs room temp
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil melted
  • 3 Tbsp coconut milk full fat
  • ½ Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar or pure maple sugar
  • ½ cup + 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt

Icing Ingredients:

  • 1 cup powdered monkfruit sweetener
  • ¼ cup coconut butter
  • 2 TBS melted coconut oil
  • 2-3 TBS almond milk
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp matcha tea for coloring

Cupcake Directions:

  • Pre-heat oven 350 degrees F and line a muffin/cupcake pan with parchment liners.
  • Using a food processor or hand held mixer blend the eggs, coconut oil, coconut milk, lemon juice, vanilla, maple syrup and sugar together until very smooth.
  • Add the dry ingredients gradually to the wet and mix until well combined.
  • If batter is too runny, add in 1 more Tbsp of coconut flour. If batter is too thick add in 1 tsp of water or coconut milk.
  • Pour batter into pre-lined baking dish. If you fill the parchment liners over ¾ of the way you should get around 8 cupcakes. If you fill only ½ to ¾ of the way you’ll get 12-14 cupcakes.
  • Bake for 17-20 minutes until tops are domed and toothpick inserted in the center of cupcake comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool a few minutes in the pan before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once cooled to room temp, frost and decorate as desired.
  • Store cupcakes in refrigerator for up to 5-6 days.

Icing Directions:

  • Use a food processor and blend all ingredients together.
  • Store in refrigerator. Use within 5-6 days.

JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
