These vegan and grain-free Avocado Matcha Muffins are green tea superfood goodness packed into a soft and fluffy baked bundle for the perfect healthy snack!

Like a goodness-packed green gift from me to your morning time.

Because weekend or weekday, unhurried or hustlin’, quiet or kid-filled–a superfood muffin snack is never a bad addition to the morning hours. They can double as a fluffyamazing afternoon snack too, but personally I try to pack in lots of healthy green things before noon just in case the rest of the day goes in a heavily treat-filled direction. Someone’s gotta taste test all those chocolate recipes! Not to mention the natural caffeine in matcha makes them best suited to be a morning energy boost too.

I partnered up with Your Superfoods once again to create a recipe featuring more of their fun superfood mixes, this time the Power Matcha mix. Last time I got kitchen-creative with their products these dreamy triple-decker ice cream sandwiches happened. But since it’s getting closer to fall and back to school time is in full swing, I thought I’d focus on something baked and bring-with-able.

What is the perfect packed-snack form? The muffin.

Every recipe in the FOF muffin archives up until now has one thing in common and that one thing is oats. Oat flour to be specific. To make this batch different (beside the green color of course!), I wanted to branch out with my flour selection and keep these muffins grain-free at the same time. But don’t worry I included an oat flour option too.

Almond flour + tapioca starch. Lemme tell ya, those two are a muffin-making dream team! Rich, moist, tender, perfect crumb, and all the other things you want a baked good to be. The almond flour makes up the majority of the dry ingredients and is to thank for most of the lovely texture, but the tapioca helps with binding and is important too so don’t skip it.

Oat flour option. In case you were cool with the way things were before, I did test these muffins with oat flour and they came out super soft and fluffy too. A bit drier, but that is to be expected with the lack of nutty richness. You will not need the tapioca starch with this version as oats have enough binding power all on their own.

Avocado. Oh yeah. The other part of that title that I haven’t addressed at all yet. Yep, there’s avo in the muffins. Blend it, dip it, toast-top it, and now bake with it too! Is there anything avocado can’t do?

That creamy green fruit keeps these muffins extra moist and extra vibrant but still oil-free. You could try subbing mashed banana or applesauce for a lower fat option, but I haven’t tested it so experiment at your own risk.

One large avocado is the perfect amount for a batch of six muffins. But since avocado size is all relative, it should be approximately 3/4 cup mashed. A little more/less is nothing to worry about though.

Matcha + greens. The Power Matcha mix I used in this recipe actually contains much more than just green tea. It’s a blend of organic matcha, moringa, maca, wheatgrass, and barley grass. So you are getting a dose of superfoods and greens mixed in to all that muffin fluff.

This mix has a delicious green and earthy flavor, but even with the two sizable tablespoonfuls I added they are not too green tasting after baking. If you use plain matcha powder instead, consider decreasing to one tablespoon unless you like a really strong green tea flavor.

The rest of the ingredients are just your usual muffin making suspects. I prepared the entire batter right in my blender to make things less-than-one-bowl easy. But if you go with the oat flour option, maybe mix in the flour by hand or be sure to not over-blend or you will wind up with gummy muffins. Otherwise just blend, batter-divide, bake, and enjoy warm from the oven or chilled all week long.

The perfect green fluffy friend for your fave (warm or cold) morning beverage!

Description

These vegan and grain-free Avocado Matcha Muffins are green tea superfood goodness packed into a soft and fluffy baked bundle for the perfect healthy snack!


Ingredients

Scale

  • 1 large avocado ((about 3/4 cup or 225g after mashing))
  • 1/2 cup (90g) maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cup (170g) almond flour ((*see notes for oat flour option))
  • 1/2 cup (70g) tapioca starch
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 12 tbsp Power Matcha
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine the avocado and maple syrup. Blend until broken down with no large chunks of avocado remaining.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients. Blend to combine. Do not over blend.
  4. Lightly grease 6 cavities of a muffin pan. Fill each with batter until almost level with the top.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350F or until the center feels firm to the touch.
  6. Remove from the oven and cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from the pan and eating.
  7. Keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week preferably in the fridge for optimal freshness.

Notes

For the oat version, substitute 1 1/2 cups oat flour for the almond flour and leave out the tapioca starch. The muffins will be slightly drier but still very fluffy and delicious!
