Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cup Blue Diamond® Almond Flour
  • 2 tbsp Matcha Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Coconut Yogurt

Strawberry Buttercream Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Strawberries, blended to make 1/3 cup puree
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 4 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 cup Butter
  • Pinch of Salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • Add the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Then, add the liquid ingredients and mix the ingredients together until combined. (Do not overmix the batter.)
  • Pour the matcha cupcake batter into each muffin tin opening and bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cupcake comes out clean. Let the cupcakes cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Top with your favorite frosting or whipped cream, and enjoy!

How To Make Strawberry Buttercream

  • Start by pureeing fresh strawberries in the blender until smooth. You will need about ⅓ cup for this recipe.
  • Then, add the butter and powdered sugar and blend/mix until fully incorporated. Add in the strawberry puree and blend until the frosting reaches your desired consistency. If it is too thick, add in a bit more strawberry puree.
  • You can transfer the strawberry buttercream into the fridge to firm up a bit. Or, you can transfer the buttercream to a pastry bag right away and begin decorating your cupcakes.

Notes

To Note: The intensity of matcha flavor and color in this recipe depends on the brand and type of matcha powder you use. I highly recommend using High-Quality Ceremonial Grade Matcha for the best color. (It is normal for the cupcakes to look slightly brown on the top after baking)
