Starbucks in Japan always has the most amazing looking treats! Coming from someone who rarely has Starbucks at home, I find the seasonal menus from Starbucks in Japan so much more enticing. I am both sad and relieved that it’s not as easy for me to just go out and buy these goodies. The fact that all of the beautifully displayed treats are never gluten free has put me on a mission to recreate them at home. This is but the first of many recreations of the best looking foods from Starbucks Japan.
Since I saw them, these gorgeous Uji Matcha White Chocolate Scones have been taunting me… Since we can’t be in Japan right now, and the original product isn’t gluten free anyway, I created my own gluten free recipe for their Matcha White Chocolate Scones!
These scones are flavourful and delicious and seriously easy to devour. The earthy, slightly bitter matcha flavour and the sweet white chocolate pairs so well together! The fact that the scones are really easy to make and can be done in one bowl, with your hands, just makes them even better! This way, you can get the experience of Starbucks Japan from your home and not miss out on trying that delicious treat in the display window because they aren’t gluten free…
As I said before, these scones are made in one bowl, require very little elbow grease, and are quick to whip up. They are heavenly to eat fresh! If you happen to have some left over, I would suggest freezing them early on so they retain their freshness when you defrost them! But honestly, I doubt you’ll have any left by the end of the day!
