Matcha green tea waffles.


My teen is insistent that matcha tea tastes like “ponds”. I love it. I thought I’d try and do what all parents have been doing for years and sneak a food into a child’s diet by disguising it as something else. Waffles might work well, universally enjoyed and as they are usually a breakfast food might get consumed before the person eating them properly wakes up. The matcha I was sent by Eat clean tea was used in this recipe.


125g plain flour

2 tsp matcha green tea powder

1/2 tsp baking powder

10g caster sugar

240ml milk

1 egg

1 tbsp oil

pinch of salt

How to..


Matcha green tea batter

  • Sift the flour, salt, matcha green tea and baking powder into a bowl.
  • Stir the sifted mixture. Break in the egg, pour in the milk and oil.
  • Whisk together until just combined. Don’t over beat.
  • The batter can stand for a while if you need it to or can be used straight away
  • Heat your waffle maker or iron.
  • Cook the waffles according to the maker’s instructions.

I served my waffles with a drizzle of maple syrup and fresh strawberries.


I was sent the matcha green tea by Eat Clean Tea, I was not asked to blog about the product or give a positive review. All photographs my own.
