Author Beautiful Eats & Things

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 ¼ tbsp Enzo's Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • ½ tsp lemon zest

Lemon Drizzle (Optional)

  • ½ cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, matcha, salt, and sugar. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together milk, vanilla, egg, lemon juice, and lemon zest.
  4. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined but be careful not to over-stir. Over-stirring will result in tough, dense muffins.
  5. Add muffins liners to muffin tins or spray tins with non-stick cooking spray.

  6. Distribute the batter evenly into the muffin tins and bake for approximately 15-17 minutes or until fork comes out clean.
  7. Transfer to wire rack.
  8. Optional: For lemon drizzle, mix confectioner’s sugar and lemon juice until desired consistency. Drizzle lightly over muffins and let muffins sit until drizzle slightly hardens.
  9. Enjoy!
