Blender Matcha Pancakes

Pancakes are my favorite weekend breakfast. Something about slow mornings full of good music, tasty food, and my favorite people that is so soul-nourishing. I decided to take the normal oat pancake recipe I use and add a lil zing (In this case, my zing is matcha!!) to it.

In all honesty, I couldn't really taste the matcha, but it left me with beautifully green pancakes. Not to mention, all the benefits of matcha (lots of antioxidants and energy without the jitters!). 

They're a lot denser than regular pancakes, but so much more satisfying as well. I decided to top mine with walnuts, cacao nibs, coconut chips, blueberries (I also added in blueberries to the actual pancake), pepitas, and drizzled with Once Again almond butter.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup oat flour

  • 1 scoop of protein powder

    • (you can omit this and add a scoop more of oat flour or collagen)

  • 1 ripe banana

  • 1 regular egg (a chia egg should work, too!)

  • 1/4 cup nut milk

  • 1 tsp. matcha powder

  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

  • Pinch of sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
     

Directions:

  • If you don't have oat flour (I didn't!) just take your uncooked oats and blend them in a blender until flour-like consistency. It will take a minute to get completely smooth.
  • Place rest of ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth
  • Grease a skillet with coconut oil, and let it sit over medium heat until hot
  • Pour blended batter directly onto skillet
  • Once little bubbles appear on the pancake, flip
  • Top with nuts, seeds, and fruit and enjoy!
  • *See below for "side notes" :)

 

Side notes:

  • Let the batter in the blender sit for a couple minutes before pouring. I don't know why exactly, but the pancakes were always better when I did this!
  • Make sure the skillet is warm before pouring.
  • There is no gluten in these, which means it's not going to stick together like normal pancakes. Make sure you got the whole spatula under the pancake before flipping (I learned this by flipping two right into the side of the pan haha).
  • I added blueberries to my pancakes to make them a little thicker.
