Matcha is popping up everywhere these days, from lattes to cookies and everything in between. If you want to get in on this green tea trend, why not try these Keto matcha mini pancakes? These delicate pancakes are made with almond flour and flavored with matcha powder and cinnamon. The delicate grassy flavor of matcha pairs perfectly with the spicy-sweet flavor of cinnamon. These pancakes have a delicate flavor and a delicate texture, so it may take a little practice to get the hang of making them. Luckily, even messy pancakes taste good!

How Is Matcha Different from Other Types of Green Tea

Did you know that Matcha is made very differently from the green tea that comes in tea bags? While green tea is prepared by steeping green tea leaves in hot water, matcha powder is actually made from de-veined, de-stemmed tea leaves that have been protected from the sun. Matcha tends to be expensive than other kinds of green tea because it is more labor intensive to make. Matcha also contains significantly more antioxidants than other forms of green tea [1].

Our Top Tips for Successful Low-Carb Pancakes

  1. Pre-mix for easy assembly – Making pancakes can be a little time consuming so why not save time and set yourself up for success. Mixing up the dry ingredients the night before will save time in the morning.
  2. Don’t skip the ghee – Even if you are using a non-stick pan (which is strongly recommended for this recipe) you shouldn’t skip the step of greasing the pan before you add your batter. Since almond flour contains no gluten, these pancakes are more delicate and prone to sticking than pancakes made with wheat flour. A little extra help making these pancakes easy to flip makes the whole process more enjoyable.
  3. Use your oven – Unless you eat as you cook, it can be hard to keep pancakes from getting cold. To solve this problem, place a sheet of foil on the top rack of your oven and preheat to 225 degrees. As you finish each pancake, place it in the warm oven until ready to serve.
  4. Freeze any extras – These pancakes are best served warm, so if you have leftovers, you can freeze them between sheets of parchment paper. To reheat, simple place the desired number of pancakes on plate and microwave in 30 second increments until warm.

Description

If you love the flavor of green tea, you will love these matcha mini pancakes.


Ingredients


Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, erythritol, cinnamon, and matcha powder.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the almond milk and eggs together. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and whisk until there are no lumps. Add another dash of almond milk, if needed.
  3. Heat a small non-stick pan over medium heat and add a small amount of ghee (1/2 teaspoon) to the pan. Then spoon 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan and turn the pan around, spreading out the batter. Once the pancake starts bubbling, carefully flip the pancake and cook the other side for 2-3 minutes. Once cooked, move to a baking tray lined with paper towels to absorb excess grease.
  4. Repeat the process until all the batter has been used.
  5. The pancakes should be kept warm and served warm. Dust a little confectioners’ sweetener on the pancakes top with mixed berries.

NOTE: Due to the fragile nature of the batter, we do not suggest you use a large pan. We commend a  miniature non-stick pan about 4 inches (10 cm) in diameter for successful mini pancakes.
