Is this Madeleine Recipe Dairy Free?
For this Madeleine recipe, I decided to make it dairy free by using coconut oil and coconut cream instead of butter. These Madeleines are delicate and cake-like so the experiment went well 🙂
(*Note, not all matcha green tea powders are gluten free. Check ingredients!!)

What is matcha?
Matcha is a green tea powder that comes in either culinary grade or ceremonial grade. There are many different quality grades in between! I love to bake with matcha and I typically use the culinary grade. Matcha has many health benefits, and it also adds a small caffeine boost to these cookies.
You can use matcha green tea in all sorts of recipes including baked deserts like donuts, cakes, and mochi, puddings, and even mixed drinks!
What flavors go well with matcha?
My favorite flavor profile with matcha is white chocolate, as you will see when I use matcha green tea and white chocolate. Other flavors that pair with matcha include vanilla, almond, and coconut.
