  • 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!


  • 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.
