Steamed Matcha (green tea powder) cupcakes serve my busy morning. Plenty of moisture helps me with the early morning digesting.  Matcha adds my morning caffeine. Great things No sugar, No butter, No baking-

Served 4 small cupcakes
1 egg
1 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp honey
3 Tbsp plain yogurt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp green tea powder (Matcha)

* I used 4 holder foil muffin pan as a steaming tool. I float it on a small amount of boiling water in the cooking pot and cover with a paper tower between the pot and the lid. has detailed photos, but I found this is easy and quick (steam 4-5mins). Thank you for the recipe-
* Depending upon the price of green tea powder, the final color could change. I learned that inexpensive green tea powder is a dull green or yellowish green color which has lost prime nutrition or contains stems and/or branches.
