Gluten Free Matcha Green Tea Madeleines

These gluten free matcha green tea Madeleines are a fun way to enjoy these French cakes.

Gluten Free Matcha Madeleines

I am on a Madeleine kick lately…and these dairy free matcha green tea Madeleines are no exception. Not only do these tiny French cakes have a wonderful flavor, but they pack a tiny caffeine kick as well :-).

So far I have experimented with pumpkin, kumquat, and butterscotch in Madeleine recipes and it is hard to pick a favorite.

Gluten Free Matcha Madeleine

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 πŸ™‚

(*Note, not all matcha green tea powders are gluten free. Check ingredients!! Trader Joe’s matcha powder is NOT gluten free!)

Or maybe coconut sugar? I’m trying to use healthier, alternative sweeteners in my baking. Also what’s the best way to store these, and how long will they last? Thanks!
