Change up your normal waffle routing with these Healthy Blueberry Matcha Waffles! Made dairy-free and gluten-free friendly, bursting with blueberries and amazing topped with coconut butter too!
Guys I bought a new waffle maker and I had to celebrate by bringing you a new recipe!
I’ve been purging a lot and the old waffle maker is one of those items that is getting handed down to little sister – it was actually Drew’s waffle maker from college. We had a good 10+ years with that old circle waffle maker and it was time to say goodbye. Plus I was in the mood to change things up… So I got a square one. I can even make 4 waffles in one go which will be pretty awesome.
Though knowing me and my indecisiveness I’ll wish I still had my circle one and at some point end up getting another.
Rolling my eyes at myself.
Do you have a waffle shape preference?
Is this a weird discussion we’re having?
We’re really getting in deep with this waffle maker shape chat, huh?
Okay let’s move on…
Whole Grain Blueberry Matcha Waffles
We have a brand spankin’ new waffle recipe and I need you to try it.
With blueberries because why not?! I freaking love blueberries in breakfast goodies.
And I’m hoping you’re a matcha fan as well because obviously we’ve got matcha waffles here. If you’re not a matcha fan, carry on. More waffles here.
LOL okay so I realized I only have three other waffle recipes on FMK… Goodness gracious that has got to change. I swear I had more but apparently not. Well lucky for you I’ve recently made a long list of different waffle and pancake recipe ideas so more coming soon!
Anyways back to the matcha waffles.
what you need
- whole wheat pastry flour or 1:1 gluten-free baking flour
- culinary grade matcha
- baking powder
- granulated sugar
- non-dairy milk
If you haven’t tried matcha yet but are curious, be sure to get a high quality matcha. “Ceremonial” grade is what is typically used for matcha lattes and “culinary” is used for baking, in smoothies, etc. Both Midori and encha are lovely.
Oh and these matcha waffles taste delicious with some melted coconut butter. I may or may not prefer it over maple syrup in this case…
- 1 large egg
- 2 TBS oil (avocado, sunflower, coconut, etc.)
- 2 TBS granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used cashew)
- 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour or whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 TBS matcha green tea powder (culinary grade)
- 1 TBS baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup fresh blueberries
- Preheat waffle iron and grease if needed.
- In a large bowl whisk together egg, oil and sugar. Add in vanilla and milk, gently whisking to combine.
- Add in flour, sprinkle in matcha, baking powder and salt; whisk until no lumps are present. Depending on your flour blend you may need a touch more milk here OR a tiny bit more flour. Batter should be pourable consistency.
- Use 1/4 cup to pour batter into waffle iron; cook on low-medium heat for 3-4 minutes or until waffles are lightly golden. Every waffle iron is different so cook according to manufacturer’s instructions.
- Keep in warm oven (about 160ºF) until ready to serve. Top with fresh blueberries and maybe some melted coconut butter!
- Waffles freeze great and reheat lovely in toaster.
