Servings: 10 muffins
- 145 g wholegrain spelt flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp matcha powder
- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp finely ground flax seeds
- 60 g coconut oil soft (not liquid, not hard)
- 55 g coconut sugar
- 65 g honey or agave/maple syrup for vegan
- 130 ml almond milk or other plant-based milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 50-70 g chocolate chips
Make 2 flax eggs-mix 2 tbsp of finely ground flax seeds with 5 tbsp of cold water, leave for 5-10 min in the fridge, or until it forms kind of a gel.
Preheat the oven to 180℃ and line a muffin baking tray with 10 muffin cups. In a bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, matcha and salt. In another bowl, mix the coconut oil, coconut sugar and agave syrup for 1 min, then add the flax eggs and mix well. Add the dry ingredients from the first bowl, milk and vanilla. Mix until combined. Add the chocolate chips and stir to distribute them evenly.
Fill the muffin cups with the batter and bake for 20-23 min. Check if it's done, by inserting a toothpick or a knife into the center of the muffin. If it comes out with no wet batter on, it's done. Leave to cool a bit and then indulge :)!
