Homemade matcha pancakes served with fruits and topped with kinako

Some people don’t like Mondays – but with Matcha Green Tea Pancakes to start the week with, who could complain?!

This delicious homemade recipe is brought to us at Kenko Tea by the super talented Carmen Chan from @cahmun.

Carmen Chan is a nutrition student from Vancouver who loves to document the delicious things she eats and how she creates them on her instagram,Cahmun.

Now, just because Carmen’s Matcha Green Tea Pancakes are easy to make, that doesn’t mean they’re like the fast food versions we know – it’s all sugar-free, with sweetness coming from natural honey. You can top your pancake stack with condensed milk if you like, or just cover it with fresh fruits like mangoes and peaches, which pair very well with the matcha green tea flavour.

The Kinako powder that is used for the topping is simply roasted soybean flour, a popular culinary ingredient from Japan. It’s mostly used in rice cakes like mochi and similar desserts, with a nutty taste that’s very distinctive. Kinako is gluten free and full of vitamin B and protein.

If you can’t find it in the stores, check out this link for how to make your own Kinako - it’s a great alternative to wheat flour.

Now, let’s get the week started right with Carmen Chan’s delicious Matcha Green Tea Pancakes:

Best matcha I've ever had.

Authentic & High-Quality

I've tried many other brands of Matcha tea and Kenko – Premium Ceremonial Matcha Green Tea is the best. The taste of Kenko Matcha is so uplifting and pure, just like what it says 'delicate sweetness, grassy overtones, and very light astringency' – LOVE IT!

Love this tea

I have been buying this product from Kenko for a number of years now and absolutely love it.
Wouldn't buy from anyone else
Thanks Kenko :-)
