Green Tea Muffins

I’ve been on a major cooking and baking kick lately. I was a little bored a few weekends ago and got in the mood to make some muffins. After some google searching I found this simple recipe on They came out pretty good if I do say so myself. I think next time I’ll use a bit more matcha though since I really love that strong flavor. They made the whole house smell like green tea. The one down side is that now I am craving the delicious green tea muffins I used to get every morning from Amai Tea before they closed. Theirs were much more moist and they used to stick a red bean in the middle of each one.



Prep Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 50 mins

  1. Preheat oven at 350°F.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and green tea powder and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the butter until light.
  4. Add the sugar and eggs and beat some more until light and fluffy.
  5. Add the dry mixture and the milk.
  6. Stir with a spatula or wooden spoon until the dry ingredients are just incorporated (don’t overmix). The batter will be somewhat lumpy.
  7. Divide the batter among the muffin tins (If you don’t have any liners, grease the tins), about 2/3 full.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  9. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
  10. Bon appetit!
