Get into the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day with these Fluffy Matcha Lemon Muffins! These muffins are soft, fluffy (hence the name), and packed with matcha and lemon flavor. Besides, they are so easy and quick to make. Ready in under 30 minutes, with only 8 minutes of prep time, this recipe is a perfect way to get kids involved in cooking.

These muffins require basic pantry staples and two additional ingredients like almond milk and matcha. You can make almond milk at home using our quick and simple recipe, or sub it with regular milk. For this recipe, I call for a culinary grade matcha, which is less bitter. I like to top these with a simple lemon glaze that complements the earthy flavor of matcha and adds freshness.

To make the Fluffy Matcha Lemon Muffins, you will need the following ingredients:
