Bonnie Eng is the face (and tea lover) behind Thirsty For Tea. The blog serves as a window into Bonnie’s passion for tea, along with her knowledge in health education, Asian American Studies, and the culinary arts. All of which are woven perfectly together in these scrumptious Strawberry Oat Matcha Muffins.
Strawberry Oat Matcha Muffins (makes 16)
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cups sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons of PANATEA Ceremonial or Culinary matcha
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 cup milk (unsweetened almond milk used here)
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 6 oz container of non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup coconut oil, in liquid state
- 1 lb organic strawberries, diced into ¼ inch pieces
- Non-stick spray
- Sanding sugar, to finish (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . Place 8 cupcake liners in each tin, then lightly spray a coating of non-stick spray on them.
- In one mixing bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients.
- In another mixing bowl, mix together all the wet ingredients.
- Slowly mix the wet ingredients into the dry until just mixed through.
- Gently mix in the diced strawberries. Use a spoon or ice cream scoop to fill the liners until the batter is just shy of the top rim of the liner (pretty much to the top). 6. Sprinkle the tops with sanding sugar for a crunchy muffin crust.
- Bake the muffins at 400 degrees for the first 10 minutes, then lower the heat to 350 degrees for approximately another 12-15 minutes, until the tops are very lightly golden and a toothpick comes out clean.
- When the muffins are cool enough to handle, transfer them to a cooling rack. If you serve the muffins immediately they may tend to stick to the liners. Wait until they cool completely and they should easily release.
