Matcha Green Tea Pancakes Recipe

August 02, 2016

What better way to get your daily Matcha fix than in pancakes! They are so simple to make, with just a handful of ingredients plus two teaspoons of Matcha powder, and the result is yummy, fluffy pancakes. Perfect for a lazy weekend breakfast or to cheer you up midweek, they not only taste great, but also look amazing with a bright green colour.  

For those who are new to Matcha tea, it is a popular superfood full of antioxidants, and is made from grounding premium organic green tea leaves. Matcha is well known for increasing energy levels, boosting metabolism, aiding concentration and detoxifying the body. It is said to contain over 10 times the antioxidant properties of green tea, and has one of the highest antioxidant scores amongst all superfoods. Have a read of our Matcha blog if you are interested in finding out more about the health benefits of Matcha green tea.

For the protein lovers, you can add Matcha powder to your protein pancake mix, or try adding just half a teaspoon into a protein smoothie to give you that added health kick.

Matcha Pancakes Recipe:

(Recipe adapted from Jamie Oliver’s ‘Everyday Superfood’ recipe book)

    • 170ml almond milk (or milk of choice)
    • 1 egg (or flaxseed egg to make the recipe vegan)
    • 250g self-raising flour (or gluten-free flour)
    • 1 ripe banana
    • 2 tsp Matcha powder
    • 1 tbsp coconut oil
How to make: 

Blend all the ingredients together other than the coconut oil - a NutriBullet works well for this. You now have your pancake batter (I told you it was easy)! Place your pan on a medium to high heat and use the coconut oil to grease the pan. Once the pan is hot and the coconut oil has melted, pour the batter into the centre of the pan to create a circular pancake. Cook the pancake for around 3-4 mins on each side or until the edges start to crisp. Then it's down to you to decide how you take your pancakes - we went for fresh berries and a dusting of icing sugar! YUM!
