Muffins are one of those comfort foods that never goes out of fashion. Unfortunately, they’re not the healthiest thing you can eat. The typical muffin is full of fat and sugar. Matcha green tea muffins still have some fat, but are much better for you than traditional muffins. They’re sweet, savory, and full of antioxidants that help support and protect your immune system.
Serve these delicious muffins with a hot cup of ceremonial matcha green tea. Who doesn’t like tea and muffins? Any dessert with a hot beverage is an instant comfort.
