As part of trying to get healthier, I’ve been looking for great substitutes for the many terrible things I love. Sugar, Coffee, and Diet Soda being my worst habits I need to kick. A couple summers ago I had a part time job at Teavana and was able to learn a TON about the benefits of tea for your body, mind, and soul. The ritual of brewing and steeping, and breaking out cool tea-ware is good for the soul, and really calming. However, Matcha- a powdered form of green tea leaves, is also incredibly good in many different ways! Today I already had my coffee, but not my sweet fix! So Cash and I are rolling up our sleeves and making some awesome Matcha Cupcakes! This recipe is super simple and is a great alternative to ice cream or a piece of chocolate cake when you’re in the mood for something sweet!

I topped my cupcakes with crushed cocoa almonds and toasted coconut for extra protein and deliciousness. These are great, not only do they satisfy a craving, but they also provide sustainable energy as opposed to sugar highs/crashes. The flavor is unique and extraordinary, these are even a great option to have for breakfast with fruit!!
