Green Tea Almond Cupcakes

Recipe by JungleLove
READY IN: 40mins




  • Cakes:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line and grease a 12-cup cupcake pan, you may need another pan for additional batter.
  • Whisk together flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, green tea powder, and sugar in large bowl.
  • Combine oil, milk, vanilla, almond extract, and vinegar in a separate bowl.
  • Add the wet mixture to dry and mix using a whisk. Don't mix until completely smooth. Lumps are good.
  • Fill the cups 3/4 full and bake for about 15 minutes until edges just barely begin to brown. Cool.
  • Frosting:
  • Using a mixer, beat the coconut oil, vanilla, and almond extracts until combined.
  • Add the powdered sugar one cup at a time. The mixture will be crumbly.
  • Add water little by little until you reach the desired frosting consistency. YOU MAY NOT NEED TO USE ALL THE WATER.
  • Frost the cakes and decorate. For large cupcakes I made an almond flower and for the small ones I used two slices oriented vertically to like almost like two leaves.
  • Try not to eat all at once!
