Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. Whisk the flour, salt, baking powder, matcha, and sugar together in a mixing bowl; set aside. Whisk together the egg, melted butter, and milk in another bowl. Stir the milk mixture into the flour mixture until just moistened. Stir in walnuts. Divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 25 minutes. Cool in the muffin tin for 5 minutes, then remove to cool on a wire rack.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

LOVED these! I love anything green tea, and am a huge muffin fan, so I was thrilled to find this recipe. They are pretty dense, which is how I like 'em. I only made a few minor changes: I always use whole wheat flour and Smart Balance - I doubled the green tea to 2 T. (I also used the tea from tea bags this first time even though I have matcha - might use that next time to compare), doubled the walnuts, chopped VERY finely (I usually leave nuts completely out of recipes, but they're perfect here), and added 2 tsp. of vanilla. I think the baking time/temperature is bit off - I would recommend either 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or 325 degrees for 25 minutes. And because of the green tea, walnuts, and whole wheat flour, it's a bit hard to tell when they're done by color/browning alone. The muffins are a a little small - for this amount of batter, I would normally make 8 or 9 generous muffins. Still overall a GREAT recipe!

so good.. i altered the recipe a little a they turned out most and lighter. I cut down the flour to 1 1/3 used canola oil instead of butter and 1 cup of vanilla soy milk used mini liners( all i had) at 350 for 18 min made a lemon honey drizzle to top them off.

Just a warning: powdered matcha tea is very expensive. $30 for a small can. I tried just using regular green tea leaves (cutting open a tea bag) and the muffins were still good, but imparted no extra flavor.
