Matcha Green Tea Gluten Free Pancakes
When looking for what to eat for breakfast that is both filling and nutritious I always like to use ingredients that I know will boost my energy for the day. This gluten-free matcha green tea pancake recipe was made using Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea Powder.
I am a big fan of Kiss ME Organic Matcha Green Tea and just love using the powder in shakes, but this time around I wanted to see if I can incorporate the powder in a breakfast dish for a morning energy boost and decided to make pancakes with it.
Organic Matcha Tea has many health benefits!
ABOUT MATCHA GREEN TEA POWDER
If you have never heard of Matcha then you should know that Matcha Green Tea Powder by Kiss Me Organics is 100% pure organic powder derived from the Matcha plant. This easy to grow plant taste even great in salads and I grow it in my garden and eat in in salads. Matcha contains up to 137x the antioxidants found in a cup of brewed tea and it has many health benefits:
1. ALL DAY ENERGY & FOCUS
Matcha Tea is rich in L-theanine, an amino acid that reduces stress and improves alertness. Lift your vitality and concentration with the slow release of natural energy from Organic Matcha.
2. LOWERS CHOLESTEROL & REGULATES BLOOD SUGAR
Matcha Green Tea has shown to lower harmful cholesterol and helps regulate blood sugar levels. It is also rich in L-theanine, an amino acid that reduces stress and improves alertness.
3. CALORIE BURNING BOOSTER
Support your weight loss goals with an all-natural way to increase your body's metabolism
4.Up To 137x ANTIOXIDANTS OF BREWED GREEN TEA: USDA Organic Matcha Green Tea can only be used in a powdered form because, unlike brewed green tea, it contains the entire tea leaf which dramatically increases the nutritional content.
EASY TO USE IN LATTES | SMOOTHIES | BAKING
Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea Powder arrives in an easy-to-use airtight health grade packaging allowing for as much or as little use as you need for any occasion. I like that you can use it in a relaxing latte in the morning, bake a dozen cupcakes or simply add a small boost to your morning smoothie.
Since I try to watch what I eat, I substitute many traditional pancake ingredients for more healthier choices. You will find that these green tea pancakes made with matcha green tea taste wonderful, are very filling and boost your energy at the same time.
Kids might get a kick out of the green pancakes as well. Now you can tell them besides Green Eggs and Ham, green pancakes are the latest cool thing to try. The Kiss Me Organics Matcha Tea is harvested from a family run tea farm in Shizuoka, Japan. The farm has been in existence since 1915 and has been certified as organic and chemical free since 2000.
Eating Healthy Matcha Green Tea Pancakes
GLUTEN FREE PANCAKES USING MATCHA GREEN TEA
Yields 7-8 pancakes
Total Time: 15 minutes
1 1/2 Cup Milk
2 cups brown rice flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 TBSP organic sugar
2 TBSP Matcha Green Tea Powder
4 TBSP butter or more as needed
1 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup of trail mix ( any assortment of nuts and dry fruit will work)
Maple Syrup as needed
1. Mix all dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl, add eggs, milk, and sugar. Using a wire whisk, mix the batter until all ingredients have been mixed
2. Melt butter on medium heat in a non-stick skillet. Ladle (about one cup) of the mix into the melted butter and let pancakes brown on both sides (about 2-3 minutes per side).
3. Place each pancake on a plate and top with 1 TBSP of Greek Yogurt and some trail mix. You will be surprised to learn how well the yogurt goes with these pancakes. It makes for a much healthier whip cream substitute.
4. Pour syrup to your liking.
