Small Batch Matcha and Coffee Muffins

Updated: Nov 2, 2023

Ever wondered what the planet MuffinxMilk tastes like? I imagine it to taste like coffee and matcha with a milky topping (white chocolate). Of course you could drizzle these muffins with melted white chocolate or make yourself a powdered sugar frosting with milk. These muffins will taste great with your morning coffee or a cup of warm milk.

I hope you enjoyed this recipe. If you make this recipe Tag me on Instagram and use the hashtag #muffinxmilk to be featured.

These are muffins I based off the muffin planet muffin milk. This is what I think Muffin Milk would taste like. Next month will be a new story update of our friends living in Muffin Milk. I’ll be introducing a new character!

Thanks for reading!


Why bananas? Because I wanted there to be bananas. When I first made the muffins, I made them with over ripe bananas sitting on the counter and stuck with it. Originally the muffins were made with two bananas, but I substituted one for milk. You can use milk instead of bananas. ¼ cup for every banana.

Can I use just all-purpose flour? Yes, I had a bowl of unused flour mixture that I wanted to use up and thought it made the muffins spongy!

Why a small batch? I don’t like sharing… also then I won’t be tempted to eat like 5 muffins in one day, so I try to share.

Why the shot espresso/ matcha? I think it’s easier to mix in at the end when the powders are liquid.

What if I have more questions?
