Ingredients in Matcha Pancakes

  • Almond flour: Which is just finely ground almonds. This ingredient makes the pancakes higher in protein and healthy fats while keeping them light and fluffy. Almond flour does have a slightly grainier texture than regular flour. You can find Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour at a store near you.
  • Matcha powder: Matcha powder is traditionally used to make matcha tea, this powder is great to flavour recipes and can be added directly in.
  • Baking powder: Don’t forget this one! This is what will make the pancakes rise and keep them light and fluffy.
  • Salt: It won’t make the pancakes taste salty, but will balance the flavour of the pancakes.
  • Eggs: Eggs are used a binder in the pancakes and also adds some more protein to the pancakes
  • Light coconut milk: You can use any type of milk you love, but the flavour of coconut milk is delicious combined with the matcha!
  • Vanilla extract: Gives the pancakes a hint of flavour that compliments the Matcha
  • Cane sugar: An optional ingredient. You can add this if you prefer sweeter pancakes, or simply leave it out.

How to make Matcha Pancakes

Mix the almond flour, matcha powder, baking powder and salt together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, coconut milk and vanilla extract together. Then pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

Mix just until everything is combined, then grease a pan and cook the pancakes on medium heat for 2-3 minutes on one side, and then another minute on the other side.

Serve with maple syrup and a dusting of matcha powder, or your favourite pancake toppings.

Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • Make sure to use fine almond flour, not almond meal. Almond meal is bigger pieces and won’t result in light and fluffy pancakes, and will have a grainier texture.
  • Don’t overmix the batter. Mix just until combined.
  • Cook these pancakes on medium heat. Cooking on too high of a heat can cause the pancakes to burn, as well as the butter or oil in your pan to burn.
  • When the pancakes form little bubbles on top while cooking, that’s when you know it’s time to flip.
