Matcha (Green Tea) Waffles

Matcha Green Tea Waffles Recipe

That looks delicious, right? Yup, they are. This Matcha (Green Tea) Waffles recipe is not just easy to make, but is also pretty to look at.

I’ve been eating up these matcha waffles up with some good maple syrup and salted cultured butter. Make the entire batch over the weekend and freeze them for a quick breakfast during the week. All you have to do is pop them in the toaster oven and they’ll warm up beautifully. If you’re lazy like me, you’ll love it.

A trick to getting the matcha green to show through is not to completely fill the waffle maker with the mix. Ladle on the mix from the center so it’ll spread out, but not touch the outer edges.

Matcha Green Tea Waffles Recipe


Recipe by Queenie Fok for Oh, How Civilized
Makes 6-8 waffles

Dry ingredients
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
5 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon coooking grade matcha
1/4 teaspoon salt

Wet ingredients
1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1 egg

In a bowl, sift and mix dry ingredients. In another bowl, mix wet ingredients and add to dry mix.

Ladle waffle mix onto a waffle maker. (We didn’t fill the waffle maker to the outer edges since we wanted the pretty matcha green to show.) Cook until golden brown. (We used Cooks Electric Ceramic Waffle Maker c/o and we cooked 2.5 minutes on one side, then flipped for another 2.5 minutes for a total cooking time of 5 minutes.)

Serve hot and toasty with maple syrup and salted cultured butter.
