Matcha blueberry white chocolate muffins

We’ve been baking up a storm again, using our very own super ingredient – matcha. There is a whole world of tasty recipes out there using matcha, including these yummy (and pretty healthy!) muffins, made with a little help from our friends over at Alpro. Give them a try yourself and let us know how you get on :)

 

Ingredients:

•             2/3 cup Alpro soya milk

•             1 tablespoon ground flax seeds

•             2 tablespoons lemon juice

•             1 teaspoon vanilla essence

•             1/4 cup coconut oil

•             1/2 cup maple syrup

•             1 3/4 cup spelt flour

•             2 teaspoons baking powder

•             1/2 teaspoon salt

•             1 1/2 teaspoons teapigs matcha

•             Chocolate chips or blueberries (we added both! White chocolate and matcha works so well together!)

Method

 Combine the soya milk, flax seed, lemon juice, and vanilla in a bowl and whisk together. Set this aside and allow to thicken for 5-10 minutes.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Then, sift in the matcha powder.

Melt the coconut oil and maple syrup in a large mixing bowl.

Then, pour in the soya milk mixture and stir together. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and combine, but do not over mix. Add blueberries/chocolate chips

Spoon the batter to a muffin pan with liners, about 2/3 full, and bake for about 20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean, but before the edges start browning. Optionally sift a little matcha over the top and allow to cool before serving.
