Matcha Muffins

matcha_muffins_diptych1-2So let’s talk about these awesome green Matcha Muffins, shall we? I recently received a free sample of Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea Powder and also the most amazing Amazon service I have ever seen. I order it at about 3 in the afternoon on a Wednesday and at about 9am the next morning, it was on my doorstep. Thank you Amazon! And for some reason, I got free shipping too. Amazing!

I confess, I’ve never used or tried matcha powder before, but I have had a sip or two here or there of someone’s matcha latté at Starbucks. With that in mind, and the 13-cup KitchenAid Food Processor I had at my disposal, I decided to whip up these low fat, high protein, antioxidant filled muffins. Mostly because I wanted to eat green muffins…us redheads, we have an affinity for green stuff. I make green look gooooood. Just sayin’.

These muffins would be a good snack after a workout, in the morning before running off to the day to day grind or even before a workout, though they do have a couple grams of fat per muffin (about 3.2g).

But let’s get to the REAL reason you are here right now…to see who won that amazing KitchenAid Processor! I’ma make you scroll down though….go on, check out the recipe too…

  • Elizabeth,
    Sorry until your post I had never heard of Matcha Muffins. Not only do they look to be a healthy alternative, but from the recipe, they sound really tasty as well. I’ll have to try to make these myself and see how it goes. Thanks a lot for the recipe.

  • Matcha tea products are sold everywhere here in Thailand as Asians are obsessed with green tea, and I’ve yet to find one I didn’t like :) Haven’t made any myself, though, but I may just try this recipe. Seems easy and they look delicious.
