Strawberry Matcha Muffins

Strawberry Matcha Muffins

You guys, these Strawberry Matcha Muffins are everything! There are times when drinking a hot matcha just doesn't seem right, think post workout, and these muffins fill the void like a champ. 

Let's be real I love Vital Proteins Matcha and I'm always looking for ways to incorporate more of it into my life. Matcha is packed full of cancer & free radical fighting antioxidants. It also provides around 34mg of caffeine, which is the same as a cup of coffee.

I find it’s... 

  • longer lasting
  • easier on my stomach
  • and far less likely to give me the caffeine jitters.

When you combine that with the potential health benefits of collagen (think healthier joints, skin, hair & nails) I consider that a win win! The muffins are dairy free and sweetened with Sugar 2.0 and strawberries. The strawberries provide the perfect dose (89mg per cup) of vitamin C to help the collagen do its job.

So if you’re looking for a not-so-ordinary St. Patty’s Day treat, I’ve clearly got you covered! 

Happy Friday Lovelies!
