Recipe: Paleo Mini Matcha Muffins

Mini Matcha Muffins

Prep Time:10 Min Cook Time:20 Min Total Time:30 Min
Serves 8

For The Muffins

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp matcha tea powder
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • For The Topping
  • 4 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 3/4 cup pistachios, shelled



  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a mini muffins pan, set aside.
  • Combine almond flour, coconut flour, salt and matcha tea powder in a medium mixing bowl.
  • Whisk the eggs, honey, olive oil and orange juice together, then gradually beat into the dry mixture.
  • Spoon into the muffin cups, then bake in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes (or until a tester comes out clean but the tops are not singed).
  • For the topping, melt the chocolate in a microwave until melted (approximately 1:15 minutes in mine) or over a double boiler until smooth. While it melts, chop the pistachios very fine.
  • Once the chocolate is melted, dip the tines of a fork into it and drizzle over the tops of the cooled muffins.
  • Sprinkle the pistachios over the chocolate before it hardens, then let it cool.

I used a 24-cup mini muffins pan, put this could potentially be made in a full size muffin tin. Just extend the cooking time and keep an eye on them to make sure they cook without burning.
