A Trim Healthy Mama Single Serve Muffin
I have a confession to make, part of the reason I wanted to experiment with making a matcha muffin was not because of the amazing plant called matcha. Not that I don't love matcha! I love my good ole' health foods just like the next mama. No, the reason I wanted to make a single-serve matcha muffin was because of my new red ramekins. I found them on sale at a local craft shop, but if you love the deep red color as much as I do, you can find a similar style here.
The other reason I was inspired to make these Trim Healthy Mama single-serve muffins was because of an online friend's addiction to them. She is often posting on the THM group her newfound love for single-serve muffins, and she completely inspired me to add them into the rotation. And P.S., this lady is brilliant with makeup. I literally could not make makeup look good on me even if I watched 2 billion tutorials, but this girl is on fire with her makeup.
Honestly, I have digressed away from the purpose of this post! You here for the matcha muffin, right? Now a whole soapbox about makeup and ramekins.
Why is Matcha good for You?
Matcha is one of those superfoods that is just so remarkable, that it's hard to condense a summary of its benefits into a small area. There has been studies showing it can help fight cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and even help manage weight loss.
One of the most interesting properties of matcha is a little thing called catechin, which is a powerful antioxidant. Now, since I'm not any sort of health professional, I'll leave the explanations on this remarkable antioxidant to those more educated than I, but a quick google search will lead you to a plethora of amazing information about this powerful antioxidant. It leaves little wonder why people are obsessed with the matcha plant.
A Matcha Muffin
These single-serve muffins are such an easy way to make a quick breakfast and go on with your morning. Adding the matcha is just a delicious way to get some more superfoods and nutrition into your daily diet! You could even double the recipe and make some low-carb matcha muffins to freeze or use as a snack later on in the day.
For those that follow the Trim Healthy Mama plan and lifestyle, these would be considered a healthy fat meal or an S-Meal. These low-carb matcha muffins keep our blood sugar low in the morning and energized for the upcoming day!
If you are a pregnant or nursing mama that follows THM during pregnancy, remember that large amounts of matcha can contain caffeine, so plan accordingly if you decide to make these muffins.
