I have been meaning to make these baked matcha doughnuts for ever. Especially as I need to boost my energy levels during this hectic summer period of early waking kiddoes. So what better way to start breakfast than with healthier baked doughnuts combined with super healthy green tea matcha (which is also high in antioxidants)? So when a Goen matcha kit landed on my doorstep, I knew it was time to get baking.
Goen Matcha is a newly launched UK based company who serve up matcha from a tiny traditional tea garden in Kyoto. They pride themselves in having very fresh matcha as they only order micro batch quantities, which are shipped within 24 hrs of milling before being stored in the perfect temperature controlled environment.
The matcha kit is beautifully presented and includes everything you need to enjoy your very own matcha ritual. I particularly love the accompanying hand signed note and the Japanese goen which is used as a symbol of good luck or the wish to establish a good relationship with someone. The kit bag is also reusable, eco friendly and gorgeous.
Goen Matcha are kindly offering my lovely readers £5 off their very own kit with the code GoenWithBintu. So do pop over and treat yourself.
I have been experimenting with matcha muffins and smoothies and hope to share these with you in the future. But today, it is all about these ‘I am ready to face the world’ healthier baked matcha doughnuts.
Do pop over to the Goen Matcha site to find out more. You can also buy items individually. Thanks for for supporting the sponsors who help make Recipes From A Pantry happen.
