It’s Thursday and you know what that means - the weekend is just around the corner! So to help usher in the good times, we’ve got a great matcha recipe to share.

I’ve been noticing the growing popularity of matcha pancakes on the internet and love seeing all the different creations people are coming up with. Like many people around the world, I love starting the day with a big delicious stack of pancakes - mmm!

I used to visit IHop, the pancake house, every weekend in the US. They have awesome selections of all sorts of pancakes: dairy free pancakes, low fat pancakes, buttermilk pancakes, or chocolate chip pancakes.

But sometimes it’s tastier (and cheaper!) to eat in, so today let’s check out an easy, tasty and dare we say healthy pancake recipe by Cherie from@thrivingonplants.

This is a very simple pancake recipe that’s totally vegan and low fat. The matcha tea gives the recipe an added kick of flavour and a cool green colour from spinach that makes them the perfect way to start the day. 

For all matcha fanatics like me, this pancakes recipe is super fantastic!

Real matcha

Kenko is the best matcha I've found in Australia. Expensive, but genuine tea matcha unlike the cooking grade which is sold by some suppliers. Whisks up to a beautiful foam, taste and aroma excellent. Reminds me of matcha I bought in Kyoto.

A very nice gift pack

This Matcha tea taste really good. Best advise, only boil water to 80%.
Staff at Kenko are really helpful. A great alternative to coffee.

Best Matcha by far

I've tried several different brands of Matcha over the years and Kenko is by far the best, highest quality Matcha you can buy. I absolutely love it! Thankyou.

Electric Matcha whisk

This great little electric whisk froths up my morning matcha in no time. Easier than using a traditional hand held bamboo whisk. Comes with a compact storage case. Kenko orders are sent with love, wrapped in red tissue paper. Highly recommended.

Wow!

Delicious. Love this matcha 🍵, excellent quality and the service is second to none. 10/10
