Matcha Matcha Muffin

One of my mom’s favorite quotes is “Thank goodness for muffins, without which we would have eat cake for breakfast.”  I live for this quote and these matcha muffins, which aren’t quite as evil as you think.  But they are every bit as delicious as you’d suspect.


  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Matcha


  1. Mix butter and sugar. Add egg, honey and milk and whisk to combine. Add almond extract if you want.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix flour, matcha, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add dry ingredients a bit at at time to wet and mix.
  4. Line muffin tin and fill muffins about 2/3 full. Top with crumb topping if desired.
  5. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until tester comes out clean.

For the TOPPING:

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces


  1. Make topping. Add flour, brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon and salt to a food processor. With motor running, add cold butter a little at a time. Process until chunks start to form but don’t let the whole thing turn into a big ball. Turn out into a bowl and store in fridge until ready to use.
