How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Line and grease a muffin pan.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, matcha powder and 1/2 cup of sugar. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, oil and extracts. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Fold in the white chocolate chips.
