Matcha Waffles

IMG_1747

Hi, I’m Dane, and I’m addicted to waffles.

You know me and my waffle addiction. I recently bought some matcha to make smoothies. However, I was inspired by my mocha waffles and thought, well, if I can add cocoa powder to the batter, why not matcha?

And, since tomorrow is St. Patty’s Day, the green is perfect!

Matcha is a Japanese fine powder green tea. It has many antioxidants, more so than other regular green teas, particularly because the whole tea leaf is ingested, rather than steeped.

After a hot yoga session with my sister and her friend one Saturday morning, I decided I’d make these waffles (which are vegan!) alongside some scrambled eggs and turkey bacon. These waffles turned out great, and super delicious, especially when drizzled with maple syrup. Definitely a great item to make after a workout!

Buuuut, since this is St. Patty’s Day, maybe you can enjoy these before your drinking festivities tomorrow 🙂

Ingredients
Makes 6-7 waffles

  • 1 and 1/4 cup flour (whole wheat, spelt, oat, etc)
  • 1 and 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 tbsp matcha
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cup of non-dairy milk 
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 tbsp grapseed oil

———

In a medium bowl, add all the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, coconut sugar, and matcha together. Whisk until combined. In a separate small bowl, whisk the milk, vanilla, and oil together. Pour into dry ingredients, and whisk until combined.

Notes

  • You can use any combination of flour
  • The waffles aren’t sweet on their own, but it tastes perfect with maple syrup. The combination brings out the matcha flavour. If you would like it sweeter, add more sugar
  • The waffles weren’t as green as I’d hoped they would be, so you could probably add a bit more matcha powder if you like! I could still taste the flavour.
  • Feel free to turn any of my waffle recipes into pancakes if you don’t own a waffle iron!
