Matcha Pancakes

A huge culinary trend at the moment, matcha powder (made from ground green tea leaves) paired with spinach gives these pancakes that vibrant green glow that will certainly brighten up your breakfast!


  • 2 tsp matcha powder
  • 60g spinach
  • 100ml milk
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 25g butter, melted
  • 4 tbsp natural yoghurt


  1. Grab a blender and pop in the matcha powder, spinach and milk. Whizz into a smooth mix, then pour into a large bowl with the rest of the pancake ingredients and whisk until any lumps have gone.
  2. Melt a small knob of the butter in a large, non-stick frying pan then drop in roughly 2tbsp of pancake mix for each pancake. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side (you’ll see when they are ready to flip as bubbles start to form on the surface).
  3. Serve topped with the natural yoghurt and your choice of fruit topping!
