matcha muffin

Anyone else studying for midterms and looking for a study break snack ? I made these matcha 🍵 muffins three times in the last two weeks and they’re always a hit !

Matcha and berry muffins (makes 6) :

* 2/3 cup soy milk * 1 heaped tablespoon chia seeds (to replace the egg)
* 2 tablespoons lemon juice * ½ mashed banana * ¾ cup sugar or ½ cup natural sweetener (agave or maple syrup) // You can use less sugar if you like the strong bitter flavor of matcha
* 1 + ¾ cup whole wheat flour * 2 heaped teaspoons matcha
* 2 teaspoons baking powder * Handful of frozen or fresh berries

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Combine the wet ingredients (including the ½ mashed banana) in a bowl, whisk and let the mixture sit until the chia seeds form a gel and the lemon coagulates with the milk. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients and make sure the matcha powder does not make lumps. Pour the wet ingredients in the wet ingredients’ bowl and stir well but do not over-mix. Then, pour in the soy milk mixture and stir together. Pour the batter into a muffin mold (I use a silicon one so the recipe is completely oil-free) and at the last minute add the berries on top of each muffin. Bake for about 20mn and let cool off before indulging in these vegan matcha muffins !
