Matcha Cream Cheese Muffin

Have you ever thought about having Matcha Muffins for breakfast? As mentioned in our Matcha Health Benefits article, match contains a special amino acid called L-theanine. L-theanine works in synergy with the caffeine in matcha, resulting in a gentle, long lasting energy boost! This makes these matcha muffins ideal for having with your breakfast, or a morning tea snack. 

Mixed with wholemeal flour and light cream cheese, the matcha muffins we are making today, have a light crust on the outside, and are moist & tender in the centre. The combination of matcha and cream cheese flavour makes it my favourite breakfast at the moment. Of course, it's easy to make!


(Approximately 5 serves)
  • 1 tbsp (‚Čą 5g) matcha green tea powder¬†
  • 100g cream cheese
  • 30g unsalted butter
  • 30g confectioners sugar (we have gone light on the sugar as we prefer it a bit less sweet)
  • 70g wholemeal flour (you can also use all-purpose flour)
  • 4g baking powder
  • 1 big egg or 2 small ones¬†
  • pinch of salt
