Gluten-free baking: Matcha green tea and kaffir lime leaf muffins Exquisite Pravate Chef Olivier Sanchez Healthista

Gluten-free baking: matcha green tea and kaffir lime leaf muffins

Continuing our vegetarian week special to celebrate Vegetarianism Awareness Day earlier this week, we have some fancy matcha muffins for you that are also gluten-free, oh and from a Michelin-trained chef

These earthy, lemony matcha green tea muffins with kaffir lime leaves by Michelin star-trained chef, Nutritional Therapist and Naturopath Olivier Sanchez are the perfect accompaniment to a nice cup of warm tea especially now with the looming cold season. And they are gluten-free too just for an extra helping of health.

Prep time: 10-15 minutes

Baking time: 12-18 minutes

Makes 6 muffins

Ingredients
  • 165 g Brown Rice flour
  • 100 ml Rice Cream (or coconut milk)
  • 2 Lemon (Juice) + Grated zest (keep some for sprinkling over batter)2 Lime (Juice) + Grated zest (keep some for sprinkling over batter)
  • 1 Egg
  • 6 Kaffir Lime Leaves (Place at the bottom of the muffin cups)
  • 50 ml Rice Bran Oil (or Ground Nut Oil)
  • 50 g Honey (or Agave/Brown Rice Syrup)
  • ½ Tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ Tsp Matcha Green Tea
  • ½ Tsp Grated Ginger (optional)

 

Method

Add all ingredients together (except oil), and mix well until smooth, using a hand mixer, large mixer or by whisking energetically, then incorporate oil gently.

Place the kaffir lime leaves at the bottom of the muffin cups and pour muffin mix over them. Then place in a pre-heated oven.

Bake the muffins at 180˚C  for 12–18 minutes depending on your oven. Fan assisted ovens tend to take less time. To check if the muffins are done, prick them with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean, the muffins are ready. Otherwise let them bake for another couple of minutes and check again.
