I am so in love with Matcha! It has such beautiful benefits for our bodies and is full of antioxidants and cancer fighting qualities.
Matcha is of the highest quality grade teas, great for sustained energy, focus, and stress reduction (from L-Theanine levels). It is nature’s most abundant source of the antioxidant EGCG and equals as many antioxidants as 10 cups of green tea! As EGCG gains credibility in the health world, it’s an incredible nutrient vital to many systems of the human body. It promotes optimal cellular function and by adding this to our daily routine, we can be assured our cells are thriving happy and healthy.
So why not be fun and put a twist on your not so normal YUMMY pancakes, and add some amazingness with a scoop of Matcha? I mean, why not? And NO, you’re not going to have caffeine overload or anything like that, it will help ease your mind.
Love you guys. Enjoy breakfast and tag me or email me if you make this, I LOVE seeing your creations.
-1 cup (200g) GF/Vegan pancake mix (Arrowhead Mills has a great one)
-1 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)
-1 medium banana
-3/4 unsweetened vanilla coconut milk
-1 1/2 tsp matcha (I like navitas brand )
-1 tsp vanilla
-1/4 tsp cinnamon
This is good for thick pancakes… I wanted them slightly thinner (still pretty thick) so I added 1/4-1/2 cup more milk… gauge it to how you like
-In a blender, combine all ingredients but the pancake mix. Then transfer to a medium size bowl and add the pancake mix. I like to put it through a sifter to ensure even mixing.
– let Pan warm up on medium heat for about 3 minutes. If you put a drop of water on the pan it should sizzle, if not, wait 1-2 more minutes. Then in 1/4 cup portions, gently pour the batter into the pan and let the pancake cook for about 2-3 minutes. Bubbles should start to form on the uncooked part on top, you can also slide a spatula under slowly to see if it pulls up, then flip the packets and cook another 2 minutes.
