Good morning hunnies! Feast your eyes on these pretty incredible Matcha Muffins, made using EATCLEAN TEA Matcha. These muffins were originally inspired by the lovely Trois Fois Par Jour, such an incredible site, and wonderful vision behind everything they do! Was just so obsessed, so I recreated them with my twist, and the ingredients I had available in my home!

I was super excited to try something new with Matcha, but to be honest I was I was also super scared to cook with it because I really did not now how the flavour of it would turn out in baking.

Thankfully these little nuggets turned out amazing! So rich, fluffy and full of flavour.  Perfect for breakfasts, and snack time.

The Matcha flavour is super light, and subtle.  You still get hints of the Green Tea taste, but there is nothing really wrong with that now, right!?!

handpicked and stoneground into a fine powder called matcha. you see, i’m a powerful source of
antioxidants with 137 x the amount in normal green tea and i’m also proven to boost
metabolism, improve skin, fight disease and will give you long-lasting energy like
coffee – but without the crash!” -EATCLEAN TEA
