Matcha Waffles

Goood morning babes! how are you doing today?

There’s no better way to start Sunday than with fresh homemade waffles, right? At least when they are super healthy, vegan and gluten free – yeah i got all those allergies covered up!

I’ve shared a good basic recipe for gluten free waffles ages ago, and think it was about a time to up my waffle game a bit. Also I’m currently staying at my parents’ where the waffle iron is at, so it’s only reasonable to treat yourself and others in the house with some heavenly vegan goodies.

Made with naturally gluten free buckwheat flour and sweetened with bananas and low GI coconut sugar, these Matcha Waffles are the best healthy treat for your Saturday or Sunday morning – sometimes for Monday morning too!

I served mine with homemade dark chocolate sauce, berries, banana slices and cacao nibs. Feel free to customize your toppings according to your preferences 😉 hope you love them!

Here are the instructions, happy baking!

Matcha Green Tea Waffles
(makes 4-5 waffles)

1 heaping cup buckwheat flour
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tsp matcha green tea powder*
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground cardamom
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt

1 ripe banana, mashed
1 cup plant mylk
1 tbsp virgin coconut oil
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients together, stir well to combine. Add the mashed banana, plant mylk, melted coconut oil and vanilla extract. Stir well and let sit for couple of minutes.

Meanwhile turn on your waffle iron. Start with a lower level, as the waffles might burn easily. Grease the iron with a bit of coconut oil. Add a couple tablespoons of the batter, let set for a little while and close the lid. The waffles will need 2-3 minutes to bake. Check on them regularly. Open the lid carefully and detach the waffle from the grid with a fork. Set aside and repeat.

Serve and ENJOY!
