How to make these matcha tea muffins?

For the dough, I started with a classic muffin base to which I added a touch of matcha tea powder. It is now easily found in organic stores. The matcha brings a little bit of bitterness (and its pretty green color) counterbalanced by the addition of White chocolate. The whole is intentionally not very sweet - but that's exactly what I like!

The texture of these muffins is particularly soft, the top is slightly crispy (result of a high temperature at the start of cooking). If you like muffins, I'm sure you'll love it. 

As is generally the case with muffins, it is advisable not to do not over mix the dough, to ensure optimal results.

    I try immediately but it seems that there is an oversight: in the list of ingredients there is white chocolate and throughout the recipe it is no longer mentioned
    so I take an initiative I pour at the end in chips we will see well….
