Chocolate-covered spring. That’s how I’d describe the flavor of these Keto Matcha-Moringa Baked Donuts!

I’d been wanting to use my favorite Matchinga powder in baking for so long. And then, I had the idea to make green donuts!

Naturally colored green donuts, of course. 😉

I hesitate to use the word “earthy” when describing a dessert. I feel like people — me included — associate the word “earthy” with dirt. 

These keto baked donuts definitely do not taste like dirt! 😛 Yet, they do taste earthy — in a really good way. It’s a light, spring-y sort of flavor — slightly grassy, but also, in a GOOD way.

Gah, I fail to adequately describe them. If what I’m describing doesn’t sound appealing to you, forget what I said. These donuts won’t disappoint!

Covered in chocolate, these Keto Matcha-Moringa Baked Donuts are a perfect breakfast, snack, or dessert!

What is Matcha-Moringa (aka Matchinga)?

Our friends at Perfect Supplements — my favorite whole foods supplement company — have combined antioxidant-rich, organic Japanese matcha with moringa, one of the most nutrient-dense plants on Earth, to create their trademarked Matchinga powder! (<– Save 10% on Matchinga or any Perfect Supplements product with my readers-only discount code ALLTHETHINGS!)

Sounds like a fun dance, doesn’t it? Cha, cha!

This energy-boosting green powder is loaded with antioxidants, iron, calcium, minerals, and all essential amino acids.

Perfect Matchinga has…

  • 9 times more calcium than milk
  • 7 times more protein than yogurt
  • 6 times more iron than spinach
  • 48 times more Vitamin B2 than kale
  • 17 times more antioxidants than blueberries
  • 4 times more potassium than bananas
  • 2 times more Vitamin C than oranges
  • 3 times more Vitamin A than carrots
  • 10 times more nutritional potency than green tea

Matchinga contains 28 grams of naturally occurring caffeine per serving. (For reference, a cup of coffee contains about 100 grams of caffeine.)

Both the matcha and moringa in Matchinga are…

  • certified organic and non-GMO
  • come from family farms
  • are paleo-friendly
  • are soy-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan

No Food Coloring Allowed!

Happily, just 1/4 cup of Matchinga powder gives these Keto Matcha-Moringa Baked Donuts a deep, naturally green flavor — no food coloring needed!

It’s Real Food color in action!

Just look at how rich and green those donuts are. And covered in a sugar-free chocolate glaze?? SWOON.

I can think of a few adults and kids who would love these for a party, especially one involving a leprechaun or maybe even some green beer! 😉 Or how about my other super green drink: Keto Matcha-Moringa White Hot Cocoa?

We could all use more green foods in our lives, so why not green donuts? 

These Keto Matcha-Moringa Baked Donuts are totally nut-free (no almond flour!), dairy-free, and paleo, too.

I guarantee your kids won’t complain about eating their greens in donut form, glazed with chocolate. And, Momma will be happy too, knowing that they’re made with simple, nourishing ingredients and won’t have the kiddos on a sugar high after!

I don’t want to use a keto sweetener. Can I use a whole sweetener?

Sure! Feel free to sub your favorite granulated sweetener of choice. 

My favorite non-keto, granulated sweetener is coconut sugar (<– Save 10% on Wildly Organic coconut sugar with my coupon code ALLTHETHINGS!)

I have not attempted this recipe with a liquid sweetener, like maple syrup or raw honey, so I can’t say how they will work in this keto baked donuts recipe.

Additionally, this recipe uses Wildly Organic coconut flour and coconut oil — and my coupon code ALLTHETHINGS will give you a 10% discount on those, too!

P.S. I understand your skepticism about low-carb/keto sweeteners. So, I did a bunch of research and put it all in a Free Guide To Alternative Sweeteners for youdownload the free guide here!

How To Make Keto Matcha-Moringa Baked Donuts

8 ingredients, y’all. That’s it. And suuuuuuper simple.

When I’m working with coconut oil, I find it helpful for all of my other ingredients to be at room temperature. Otherwise, if they’re cold, it re-solidifies the coconut oil, which makes for a donut batter that doesn’t cook properly because the fat isn’t evenly distributed.

So, first, you want to start with all your ingredients at room temp. 

The rest is very simple:

Combine, the coconut flour, Matchinga, granulated sweetener of choice, baking soda and baking powder in a medium-size mixing bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer. Whisk the dry ingredients together.

Then add room temperature eggs and melted or softened coconut oil and blend until a nice, smooth batter forms.

For beautiful donuts, scoop the batter into a gallon-size zip-top bag with a 1/2″ hole cut in one corner and pipe the batter into the donut wells, filling each well half-way. (I have this donut pan.)

Bake at 350 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes, or until the donuts have risen and look cake-y. It’s hard to tell by color on these donuts because they’re so green! But, you want the green to be nice and bright, not browned.

Once the donuts are baked and cooled, melt 1/2 cup of keto-friendly chocolate chips (Lily’s brand is my favorite) with a bit of coconut oil. Dip the top of each donut in the melted chocolate glaze and set aside to harden. 

You can also sprinkle the donuts with some extra Matchinga powder for more green goodness! Just a note: after the donuts sit for a while, the Matchinga will absorb into the glaze. So that pretty, green powdery finish doesn’t last long. 🙁 But it sure is fun!

Now, here’s the full recipe for these yummy Keto Matcha Baked Donuts!
