A Word on Flour

Selecting the right flour is key to achieving the perfect balance of taste and health. For this week’s recipe, we have two excellent flour options to consider: 

Whole Wheat Flour: This choice provides the wholesome goodness of fiber and more nutrients than all-purpose flour. Opting for whole wheat flour infuses the pancakes with a nuttier flavor and a heartier texture, complementing the matcha's depth.

Almond Flour: Almond flour is ideal for those preferring a gluten-free option. It's rich in protein and low in carbohydrates, contributing to a pancake that’s both light and fluffy. The rich, nutty flavor of almond flour pairs wonderfully with the unique taste of matcha, making each bite a delightful experience.

Each flour brings its unique qualities to your Matcha Pancakes, allowing you to tailor the recipe to your dietary preferences and nutritional needs. Now, let’s make some pancakes! 😀

2 Tablespoons matcha green tea powder

2 Tablespoons sugar 

1 teaspoon baking powder (ensure gluten-free if using almond flour)

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 Cup buttermilk (or a dairy-free alternative)

1 Large egg (or a flax egg for a vegan option)

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (or a vegan butter alternative)

Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto the pan. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook until golden brown.

Serve hot with your choice of toppings.
