Looking for a fun way to include Matcha into some of your favorite dishes? While we love the ritual of preparing matcha, sometimes it’s fun to shake up the routine. No need to pull out your bamboo scoop, matcha whisk, and bowl to prepare this recipe: Matcha Waffles.
MATCHA + WAFFLES = A MATCH(A) MADE IN HEAVEN
Simply including matcha in your morning waffles recipe can give you a small burst of energy, along with several other wonderful benefits. If you’re worried about your waffles tasting vegetal, don’t fear! Matcha is a great baking ingredient, especially our Matchasticks which are smooth, creamy, light and fresh (and it’s always up to you if you’d like to add more or less to your batter).
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 cups gluten free all-purpose flour
- ¼ cup sugar
- ½ cup toasted unsweetened shredded coconut
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 Art of Tea Matchasticks (more or less for taste)
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- ½ cup gluten free beer
- Fruit and powdered sugar to serve
- Preheat a waffle iron.
- In a bowl, combine the coconut milk and vinegar and set it aside.
- In the bowl of a standing mixer, combine all of the dry ingredients and then whisk in the coconut milk and the coconut oil and beer and beat until you have a smooth batter (studded with the coconut).
- Spray the waffle iron with coconut oil spray and spoon the batter into the hot waffle iron and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and serve hot with powdered sugar and fresh fruit. (Or keep the waffles warm in a 300 degree oven until ready to serve.)
