Green Tea Muffins with Mini Chocolate Chips

2

Last weekend I bopped around the city and discovered The Spice House on Wells St.  I found this  Matcha Powder there and let’s be real I want to make any dish green if possible (more on this here).

Originally I planned to make green tea shortbread and then remembered I made shortbread last week and forced myself towards a green tea muffin.  Amazing call.  Couldn’t resist adding mini chocolate chips.  I support most mini things including my recently acquired mini cooper that I mainly bought because Ina Garten also drives one (more on that here).

These come together so fast and taste delicious.  I know the green color is weird and if you want to (slash if you are boring) you can leave the matcha out and just have regular chocolate chip muffins.

Line a muffin pan with liners.

Get two bowls.  In one bowl combine one egg, 1 cup milk (I used 2%) and 1/3 cup melted better.

In the other bowl combine 1 and 2/3 cups of flour, 0.5 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 0.5 cups of brown sugar (I used dark) and 1 tablespoon of matcha. 

So much green :)

So much green 🙂

Now add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients stirring until just combined.  Mix 0.75 cups of mini chocolate chips with two tablespoons of flour in a small bowl.  Stir into the batter briefly.
