Fluffy Matcha Chocolate Chips Muffins.

Can you take your favorite basic muffin recipe and turn it into something special? That’s what I did with my tried and tested chocolate chip muffins recipe, and I am in love!

I turn my basic muffin recipe into a matcha version by adding good quality matcha (Japanese green tea powder) and turn the muffins into a lovely shade of green with super fragrant green tea flavor to boot.

Ingredients for matcha chocolate chips muffins

We will need all-purpose flour, matcha, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, semi-sweet chocolate chips, buttermilk, unsalted butter, vegetable oil, and eggs.

Please choose good quality matcha!

Good quality matcha will ensure that your baked goods will have that desired lovely bright green color instead of the dreaded dull brownish color. It will also provide enough flavor to the baked goods that you really shouldn’t cover or overpower its flavor with vanilla.

My go-to matcha for cooking and baking is Maeda En Culinary Grade Matcha. It’s the right amount if you are only using it for baking. Matcha quality degrades once you open its package, so it is best if you only buy the amount you think you can use up within six months.

Step-by-step to prepare the batter and bake the muffins

1. Preheat oven and prepare the pan

Preheat oven to 200 Celsius (400 Fahrenheit). Grease a 12 cup standard muffin pan with butter.

2. Dry ingredients

Whisk together all the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, matcha, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a mixing bowl. Add chocolate chips and stir.

3. Wet ingredients

In another bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients: buttermilk, butter, oil, and eggs.

4. Muffin batter

Make a well in the dry mixture, then pour the wet mixture, stir just until combined.

5. Bake the muffins

Divide the batter into the prepared muffin pan, then bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Turn the temperature down to 180 Celsius (350 Fahrenheit) and bake for another 15 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean.

Cool the muffins in the pan for 10 minutes, remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve the muffins warm or at room temperature.
