Matcha Waffle Ingredients
- whole wheat pastry flour or 1:1 gluten-free baking flour, or whole wheat white flour – if you want to use a blend of whole wheat with all-purpose, use half of each.
- high quality matcha – matcha is finely ground Japanese green tea leaves, different from just green tea.
- baking powder & baking soda – this helps get the correct rise for the waffles.
- granulated sugar – helps balance out the flavor of the matcha but you could omit.
- eggs & oil – for the perfect texture
- vanilla – for additional flavor
- non-dairy milk – use soy milk or oat milk to keep this recipe nut-free. Or use cashew, almond or coconut.
Gluten Free Flour
Because I do so much baking, my go-to for a gluten-free flour would be this 1:1 All-Purpose Gluten Free Baking Flour.
If not gluten-free, you can use a blend of whole wheat with unbleached all-purpose.
Or use all whole wheat white flour or whole wheat pastry flour.
Use a 1/4 cup scoop for adding into your waffle maker.
I like to pour the waffle batter into the center of the waffle iron, leaving the edges bare.
Allow the waffle to cook fully for slightly crisp edges – everyone’s waffle maker is different so just keep an eye on time.
If you don’t have cooking spray, use a pastry brush to add oil to your waffle iron if you’d like.
Freeze for Meal Prep
My favorite method for reheating waffles is in the toaster or toaster oven, about medium heat, because you get crisp edges.
Depending on your toaster, you may need to cycle through a couple times.
Alternatively you can use microwave, or warm up in a skillet over low-medium heat with lid.
