Matcha green tea waffle

Matcha green tea waffle

As there is no end to the creativity you can indulge in with waffle making, I embarked on a slightly more grown up tasting waffle. Matcha powder is not just for frothy lattes! It packs a really original flavour punch I very much enjoy adding to healthy baking. This recipe is refined sugar free and naturally gluten free thanks to using buckwheat flour. I enjoyed those waffles warm straight from the iron with frozen blueberries, toasted coconut, roasted hazelnuts and a drizzle of honey!

200g buckwheat flour (naturally gluten free)
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

the health boost tip

These waffles make a perfect weekend breakfast or brunch item but can also be packed as a snack or lunchbox healthy treat. 
They can also be enjoyed with friends as a delicious dessert served with a fruit salad, or a cheeky vanilla ice-cream and berries.
This recipe uses sprouted whole buckwheat flour from Rude Health. Buckwheat flour is a high fibre, high protein alternative to white flour. It is also higher in many essential vitamins and minerals than white flour.
