8. Matcha Green Tea Scones with Vanilla Bean Icing

St. Patrick’s Day is almooooost here, which means over here we’re munching on all things GREEN! We’ve been eating our kale salads and green juice, but we wanted to mix it up with some healthy, sweet matcha scones! They are the perfect treat for sharing with your little leprechauns. Gluten-free, they’re soft and moist- something a scone isn’t usually known for. The key is the creamy, rich coconut milk! Its keeps the dough moist and flaky and light- the way a scone should be. They’re a keeper for anytime of the year, but are perfect for this spring holiday. The fresh vanilla bean icing adds just a touch of extra sweetness to the earthy aroma of the scone- a perfect pairing! Plus, they only take about 30 minutes start to finish. May the luck of the Irish be with you…when you try to eat just one. Let’s bake!
