Servings 16 muffins


  • Muffins:
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose or gluten-free AP flour
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 ½ tablespoons matcha powder*
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons white sugar sub granulated monkfruit or coconut sugar
  • ½ cup avocado oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 packed cups baby spinach
  • 2 ½ cups frozen mixed berries
  • Crumble Topping:
  • cup all-purpose or gluten-free AP flour
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled (sub coconut oil)
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar sub granulated monkfruit or coconut sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a cupcake tin with liners. You can also thoroughly grease the tin.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together AP flour, oat flour, matcha powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In a blender, combine sugar, oil, vanilla, eggs, yogurt, almond milk and spinach. Blend until completely smooth and creamy.
  • Pour wet mixture into dry and fold until JUST combined, then fold in berries.
  • Scoop approximately ⅓ cup mixture into each liner. You want the batter to line up slightly under the edge of the tin. NOTE: you should have some batter leftover for 4 more muffins.
  • In a small bowl, mix together all crumble topping ingredients with a fork or your fingers. Evenly sprinkle over muffins, then gently pat into the batter.
  • Bake for 27 minutes, then cool in the tin for 10 minutes. Remove from tin and place on a slotted rack. Cool completely before enjoying, another 20 minutes or so.
  • Repeat with remaining batter and crumble. Muffins will keep at room temperature up to three days or frozen 4 months.
