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.
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.
