Coconut Flour Muffins w/ Matcha Frosting

I love all things matcha. Tea, lattes, cakes, breads, soft serve, ETC. Give it ALL to me! When Aiya sent me some matcha powder to try out, I was SO excited!! I’ve made lattes, muffins & frosting with the powder. More recipes are in the making :’) Matcha powder also has many health benefits!

Benefits: Matcha Powder is a high quality powder from the Japanese culture. The leaves are picked, steamed and stemmed before being grounded into a fine powder. To retain it’s color and antioxidants, it’s stored out of light & oxygen. Antioxidants help with negative effects of  UV radiation and prevent cell damage. Matcha is also loaded with catechin. Catechin has cancer fighting properties and helps with aging skin and fights all sorts of disease. Since Matcha also has caffeine, it helps you stay alert while giving you a boost of good, clean energy! It’s not a medication to cure disease but playing a small role in prevention. It’s a great product to add into your everyday diet!

    1. yes! you can make “flax eggs”. 1 flax egg is 1 tbsp flaxseed + 3 tbsp water. You can replace the 1 cup egg whites with 1/2 cup flaxseeds + 1 1/2 cup water. Let it sit for 15 minutes before using 🙂
