These matcha coconut muffins with a chocolate & coconut frosting are our June Matcha Mail recipe of the month from the beautiful Evelyn of @nourishnotpunish who has this message for you all:

Hey guys, my name is Evelyn and I’m the lady behind the health food blog @nourishnotpunish. I’m an ethical vegan from Melbourne, who has both coeliac disease and fructose malabsorption. Nourishing the body with healthy, wholesome cruelty free food is something I am super passionate about. I also believe that taking care of the mind and soul is just as important.

All the recipes I create on my blog, e-books and instagram page are gluten free, vegan, refined sugar free and fructose friendly! I have also recovered from an eating disorder, so strive to help as many girls and boys battle their demons and live a life they deserve. Matcha Maiden is a gorgeous product, I really enjoy baking with it! 🙂 Enjoy these matcha coconut muffins! Love, Ev x
