Mizuba Matcha Cupcakes

Ingredients

Wet

1/4 cup flax meal + 3/4 cup water

1/3 cup coconut oil, melted

1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. maple syrup

1 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk

1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

Dry

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/4 cup coconut flour

1/4 cup Bob's Red Mill GF Baking Mix

1 Tbsp. Organic Culinary Mizuba Matcha powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 350˚ and line your muffin tin with 6 cupcake liners.
  • Mix flax meal with water in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Combine all the wet ingredients into a small bowl. Stir in flax eggs.
  • In another bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix thoroughly. The batter will be pretty thick.
  • Divide the mixture between the 6 cupcake liners, pressing it down to fill in all the sides.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes until the tops are slightly brown and they're firm to the touch.
  • Let the cupcakes cool before frosting.

Cinnamon Whipped Cream

Ingredients

1 can full-fat coconut milk, place in your fridge overnight

2 Tbsp. maple syrup

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Directions

  • Scoop out the thick coconut cream from the can and place in a medium bowl, discarding the water that has separated.
  • Using a standing mixer or hand-held mixer, begin to whip the coconut cream.
  • Once the cream begins to thicken up, add the remaining ingredients and continue whipping until soft peaks have formed.
  • Using a cookie scoop, place a large dollop of the whipped cream over each cupcake.
  • Enjoy immediately or store in your fridge for later!
