Food Friday!

Matcha Muffins

A moist muffin with a soft delicate flavour, these Matcha Muffins are delicious!
This Food Friday recipe is gluten free, made without flour or even butter. In addition,
matcha powder (made by finely stone grinding specially grown green tea leaves)
is a powerful antioxidant and detoxifier. 
A healthy yummy treat, especially when still warm and fresh from the oven.
