Ingredients

  • Matcha Green Tea Pancakes:
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil or melted butter + extra for frying
  • 1/4 cup unrefined sugar I used coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 TBSP matcha powder
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt
  • Toppings:
  • I used plain Greek yogurt fresh raspberries, macadamia nuts, pepitas, chia seeds and pure maple syrup. Feel free to mix it up and top these bad boys with whatever you please!

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, thoroughly whisk together the egg, milk, vegetable oil (or melted butter), sugar and vanilla extract.
  • Add the flour, matcha powder, baking powder and salt. Whisk until combined and the batter comes together. It will be thick and, of course, very green.
  • Heat a cast-iron skillet over moderate heat.
  • Brush with vegetable oil or butter.
  • Using a 1/4 cup measure, transfer small mounds of pancake batter onto skillet. Use a spatula to help even out the circle if need be.
  • Once bubbles appear and pop on the surface of the pancake, carefully flip the pancakes and cook for another minute or so.
  • Stack the pancakes and serve hot with butter, maple syrup and whatever other toppings you desire.
