Yields 3-4 servings

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (may use a combination of unbleached white and wheat if you prefer)
  • 1 TBSP sugar
  • 2 tsp matcha powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup green tea, cooled
  • 2 TBSP vegetable oil or oil of choice (butter, coconut oil, etc)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Maple syrup, for serving
Directions:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F and a nonstick griddle to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, matcha powder, baking powder and salt.

In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, green tea, vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla.

Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist.

Lightly coat a griddle or nonstick skillet with nonstick spray. Scoop 1/3 cup batter for each pancake and cook until bubbles appear on top and the underside is nicely browned, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook the pancakes on the other side, about 1-2 minutes longer; keep warm in oven.

Serve immediately with maple syrup.
