  • 60 g coconut oil melted
  • 15 g honey
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • (64 g) 2 large egg whites room temperature
  • 65 g almond flour
  • 33 g all-purpose flour
  • 55 g icing sugar
  • 5 g matcha
  • tsp sea salt
  • 12 pitted cherries frozen or fresh
  • chopped almonds optional for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Lightly grease 12 mini muffin wells.
  • Place the melted coconut oil, honey and almond extract into a small bowl.
  • Lightly whisk in the egg whites.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together the almond flour, flour, icing sugar, matcha, and sea salt.
  • Pour in the egg white mixture and stir until incorporated.
  • Fill the mini muffin wells with the batter, using a cookie scoop or spoon (filling it about ⅞ths of the way.)
  • Place a cherry in the centre of each well. (If using frozen, blot the cherry before placing it in).
  • Add a sprinkling of chopped almonds (optional).
  • Gently tap the tray to release any bubbles.
  • Bake at 350°F for 18-20 minutes until lightly golden brown, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Let cool in the pan for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Dust with additional icing sugar and serve immediately.
  • You can store the financiers in an airtight container for up to 2 days if you don't plan to eat them right away. (Don't dust with icing sugar if you plan to do this).
