Units Scale
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons oil (avocado, sunflower, coconut, etc.)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3/4 cup fresh blueberries


  1. Preheat waffle iron and spray or grease with oil if needed.
  2. Mix wet ingredients: In a large bowl whisk together egg, oil and sugar. Add in vanilla and milk, gently whisking to combine.
  3. Mix in dry ingredients: Add in flour, sprinkle in matcha, baking powder and salt; whisk until no lumps are present. Fold in blueberries or chocolate chips if using. Depending on your flour blend you may need a touch more milk here OR a tiny bit more flour. Batter should be pourable consistency.
  4. Make waffles: 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.
  5. Keep in warm oven (about 160ºF) until ready to serve. Top with fresh blueberries and maybe some melted coconut butter!


FLOUR: You can also use whole wheat white, or a combination of whole wheat with all-purpose, if not gluten free.

MIX-INS: If you don’t love blueberries in waffles, feel free to omit. Chocolate chips would also be a great addition!

YIELD: Recipe yields about eight waffles that are 4″, when using 1/4 cup batter per waffle. This also depends on what waffle maker you use.

FREEZING: Waffles freeze great and reheat lovely in toaster. Store in airtight container and label for 3 months.
