Combining my two favourite breakfast menu items in one recipe: fluffy pancake and matcha latte. The recipe is made vegan, using plant-based milk and butter and one secret ingredient: aquafaba (whipped chickpea water) to create that fluffy, airy texture.
The matcha I used is from MatchaTheGreenGold, using this link you'll get 10% off your purchases!
Health benefits of matcha
Matcha is a green tea powder that originated from Japan that has skyrocketed in popularity. Matcha has a unique nutritional profile that presents so many health benefits:
- High in antioxidants and caffein
- High in vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium and vitamins
- Boosts metabolism and helps you maintain consistent energy throughout the entire day
For this recipe, I recommend using premium or ceremonial grade matcha for the optimal taste and health benefits. Lower quality matcha has a bitter taste, whereas premium and ceremonial grade ones have a rich, earthy flavour that can be incorporated into your breakfast oatmeal or latte. A small amount goes a long way, 1 teaspoon per serving should be enough.Print
