Oatmeal, Matcha, and White Sesame Steamed Bread

Oatmeal, Matcha, and White Sesame Steamed Bread

This matcha steamed bread with a subtle aroma of sesame is chewy and moist. It's a healthy recipe that doesn't use any oil or eggs.

Ingredients: 6-8 muffins

100 g
Additive-free soy milk
100 ml
150 ml
Beet sugar (or normal sugar)
40 g
Tahini (white sesame paste)
1 tablespoon
Natural salt
1/3 teaspoon
★ Cake flour
100 g
★ Aluminum-free baking powder
8 g (2 teaspoons)
★ Matcha
7 g (2 tablespoons)


1. Pulse the oatmeal into a powder in a food processor. Prepare the steamer by boiling the water and setting the steamer.
2. Mix the soy milk, water, sugar, tahini, and salt in a bowl, add the oatmeal, and mix well to allow the water to absorb.
3. Sift in the ★ ingredients, and gently fold together using a rubber spatula until it is no longer floury and is uniform throughout.
4. Fill muffin cups 80% full. When steam rises from the steamer, place the cups inside, and steam for about 15 minutes on high heat. They are ready when a skewer inserted to the middle comes out clean.
5. Remove them from the muffin cups and cool. They will turn out moist and springy, not dry, if you allow them to cool in a lidded resealable container.
6. These are low in sugar. Serve them for breakfast or for a snack. Store any leftovers in the freezer after wrapping in plastic wrap and putting them in a resealable bag.
7. For the oatmeal, you can use either the quick cooking type (shown on the right), or other store-bought oats (as shown on the left).
