I am obsessed ever since coming back from Japan!! Now my cupboards are now filled with little packets of matcha, and I have been putting them in everything. Don’t tell me matcha doesn’t go with everything, because I really won’t believe you! Smoothies, cookies, muffins.. I have made them all with matcha and loved them all.
Now a quick and easy breakfast idea using matcha? Yeah, I think I can get behind that.
I was thinking of saving this recipe for St. Paddy’s day, but it was so much fun to make and to eat that I really wanted to share it with all of you now. It is almost like eating green eggs and ham, but easier and probably more appetising.
You can add as much or as little matcha as you want. It is all about preference really. The amount in this recipe gives it a fantastic colour with only a little taste of matcha, but you can increase or decrease the amount depending on your mood or taste preference.
And since it’s a Friday, I wanted to give all of you one of my favourite recipes to make for a Saturday or Sunday brunch. That is, a weekend brunch where I am at peak laziness and can’t imagine putting more than 10 minutes into making something both healthy and delicious to eat.
Because that is all the time that it takes folks! You can doctor these the way you like too. My favourite way to eat these is with a little butter and sugar and rolled up, but some other ways that I have tried that I absolutely LOVE is Nutella and fruit (think banana, strawberry..), yogurt and fruit, or try a savoury combo like feta and spinach. The sky is the limit when it comes to fillings in crepes!
Super easy to make matcha crepes. Perfect for breakfast, brunch or dessert.
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
- 3 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk of choice
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp matcha powder
In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients until fully combined.
Heat a tablespoon of oil on a large skillet. When the oil is hot, scoop 1/3 cup of batter onto the pan, and roll the pan around until the batter has coated the pan. Flip the crepe after 2 minutes and cook until the other side is light brown. Remove and repeat for the other crepes.
