Matcha Matcha

Matcha is incredible for your health as it’s filled with antioxidants and is super in high EGCG which is known for it’s anti-cancer properties (yes please!). Other benefits of matcha includes boosting energy, boosting the immune system, detoxifying the body, and helps manage type 2 diabetes.

Make sure to buy high-quality organic matcha! I am so excited to be featuring Mizuba Tea Company matcha in this blog. It’s organic, non-GMO, radiation-free, preservative & heavy metal-free, and 100% pure!

Best Vegan Milk EVER

Ever since going vegan, I have tried so many different non-dairy milks. One of my all-time favorites is Milkadamia’s macadamia nut milk. It’s creamy, delicious and PERFECT for baking! I love adding it into my baking recipes and I thought tit would be great in my vegan gluten-free matcha muffins.

I teamed up with Milkadamia for this recipe blog. Milkadamia is an incredible company that practices and supports regenerative, sustainable farming. Their vegan nut milks are made from raw macadamia nuts that are sustainably farmed in Australia (so cool right?!). If you want to read more about their regenerative farming practices, head over to Milkadamia’s website to learn all about it!

Milkadamia’s products are all non-GMO, soy-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan. 

I don’t know about you but I LOVE a company that is earth-friendly and actually cares about our planet and the animals.

Clean Ingredients

The ingredients in this recipe are super simple and the process is also super seamless. For example, this recipe has banana, flax egg instead of a chicken egg, matcha, macadamia milk, coconut sugar, oat flour, almond meal, gluten-free flour and vanilla…pretty simple if you ask me!

I recommend using a non-stick muffin pan or parchment muffin liners. If you don’t have either, you’ll have to grease your pan! We don’t want the muffins sticking to the pan. When you go to take the muffins out if you didn’t use a parchment liner, just simply use a butter knife to remove.

The wet ingredients will be blended in the blender and then will be added into the dry ingredients. I love a 1-bowl recipe! The clean up is so easy! Bake for 22 minutes and BAM you’ll have the most delicious matcha muffins that are healthy and taste amazing.

Store in an air-tight container for up to 3 days or freeze! They are definitely best fresh the day they’re made but they will stay good for a few days in a container. It’s important to keep them sealed in the container so they stay super moist.
