Matcha Chocolate Chip Muffins #MuffinMonday

I'm not big on making New Year's resolutions but I did make a hesitant plan to try to bake more. Work took over last year but I need to make time for ME. And a big part of that is baking. I wasn't even able to bake my birthday cake last year. That's how crazy things were. But so far so good. I did Bread Baker's and now it's Muffin Monday. Let's hope I can keep this up  - theme permitting.

So matcha muffins. I was making a drink a couple Fridays ago when the idea popped into my head. A very delicious idea! I love spices in my chocolate chip muffins so I added them here. If you leave them out, you will have a lighter-coloured muffin - more matcha-green. 

Be sure to scroll down to see what fun muffins the other bakers made!

Matcha Chocolate Chip Muffins
Yield: approximately 8 muffins

180 grams flour
100 grams sugar
1 tablespoon matcha
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
1 egg
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons milk
1/3 cup oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup chocolate chips 


Preheat oven to 425 F.
Whisk flour, sugar, matcha, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. 
In another bowl, whisk egg, milk, oil, and vanilla. 
Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. The batter is thick. Next, told in the chocolate chips. 
Divide into muffin cups. 
Bake 5 minutes at 425 F then lower oven to 350F. Bake another 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
