VEGAN GLUTEN-FREE GREEN TEA {MATCHA} PANCAKES


I made these beauties yesterday, and they were a total experiment. I had about 2 cups left of my gluten-free pancake mix and thought I'd make myself some pancakes with a twist. I've made pancakes without eggs or dairy before and used apple sauce to make them fluffy - unfortunately I had no apple sauce, so I had to work with what I had.


That's when I had the idea of using the ingredients that I usually put in my morning shake into the pancake mix. I had no guarantee that it would work, but it totally did! Next up, the recipe!


VEGAN GLUTEN-FREE GREEN TEA {MATCHA} PANCAKES
  • 1 cup of gluten-free pancake mix
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 scoop of Vanilla-Chai Vega One
  • 1 tsp. of organic Matcha
  • I used Earth's Balance "butter" to cook the pancakes
  1. Mix the ingredients together (I use my Vitamix to blend them into a smooth consistency)
  2. Heat up a flat skillet or pan and grease it with Earth's Balance
  3. Pour some pancake mix (if you want larger pancakes pour more, if you want thinner smaller ones pour less)
  4. Cook until bubbles begin to appear and pop on the pancake surface then flip
  5. Cook until the bottom looks cooked, remove from pan and serve
I topped mine off with some fruit and coyo - but you can top it off with anything you like!


What I love about these pancakes is that not only do they look and taste great, they are super good for me. Matcha is an antioxidant powerhouse that helps fight cancer, burn fat, detoxes, and gives energy. The Vega One Powder is a one-stop for all the nutrients I need in the morning. It has 50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals, 15g protein, 6g fibre, 1.5g Omega-3, Antioxidants, Probiotics, and a full serving of Greens. Basically, my morning is all set!

 Would you guys try these, or is the green too weird for you? I hope you give them a chance,  not only are the delish, but your body will thank you for them!

Love,
Lorena
