"We call these 'Green Peace,'" says Archer. "They're vegan, too!"

1½ cups organic flour

1 cup raw cane sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon sea salt

¼ cup Matcha Green Tea Powder

½ cup canola oil

½ teaspoon Madagascar vanilla

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 cup water

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Whisk dry ingredients first in large bowl. Add wet ingredients and stir well. Spray cupcake pan with olive oil spray and add cupcake-baking liners. Fill each liner to top with batter. Bake for 21 minutes.


1 cup vegan butter (such as Earth Balance)

2 teaspoons Madagascar vanilla

¼ cup Matcha Green Tea Powder

½ cup organic hemp milk

8 to 10 cups confectioner's sugar

Blend until thick and creamy. Scoop into piping bag with star tip and pipe on top of cooled cupcakes. Delicious!
