Lemon Matcha Muffins

Have you seen the Netflix movie called "The Unicorn Store"? This movie is about a young adult movie who gets kicked out of art school for her whimsical and childlike artwork. She then finds herself by having to prove herself worthy of owning a unicorn.
The story has such a wonderful message and aesthetic. The main character happens to be an artist, her artwork is a mix of bright colors and sparkles! There is one scene where the main character wears an incredibly weird outfit and throws confetti and stuff everywhere! In that moment I had a revelation, yes that is me.
The concept for these matcha muffins comes from there. I saw those scenes and I was like yes, this is who I am as a person. 

Lemon Matcha Muffins

2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp matcha powder (I used vanilla matcha powder)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup almond milk
1 egg
Juice of 1 lemon
Zest of 1 lemon

1. Preheat oven to 400F and lightly oil a muffin tin
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, matcha powder, and salt
3. In another bowl, mix together, sugar, almond milk, egg, lemon juice, and lemon zest
4. Add wet dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overstir
5. Distribute batter into tin and bake for 15-17 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean
6. Allow muffins to cool and the enjoy!
