Matcha Honuts

 

"You can't buy happiness, but you can buy matcha, and that's kind of the same thing." — Unknown

You can say the same thing about donuts so what better way than to take these 2 happiness powerhouses and make these little rings of bliss! But I made it better by not sticking them in the fryer. Try toppings such as goji berries, sesame seeds, dessicated coconut and bee pollen.

You are gonna need matcha more of this! You are welcome!
