Christmas and New Year, our most favorite times of the year, are just around the corner. And in preparation, we’ve decided to fill up our site with awesome matcha desserts in preparation for the festive season.
This week we have a new matcha recipe that will make a delicious and healthy breakfast. Let’s meet our new guest, Tania Covarrubias from @tania_covavegan, and her Vegan Green Tea Matcha Donuts.
Tania is a health coach in training and enthusiastic vegan. She is passionate about healthy and clean eating and living a plant-based lifestyle, and loves to share her healthy tips and recipes on social media. Check out Tania and her vegan journey on Instagram.
What makes these decadent vegan matcha donuts good for us is that they are freshly baked with different types of protein-rich seeds, antioxidant packed matcha, and other health-giving ingredients. There isn’t any sugar, oil or dairy used in the recipe either - so you can snack on these delicious treats for breakfast without feeling any guilt.
The donuts consist of three kinds of healthy seeds; flaxseeds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, which are packed full of protein and healthy fats, creating a nice texture and toasty flavor. The chocolate part of the recipe will also satisfy any sweet tooth.
