Spinach & Matcha pancakes


Our easy spinach pancake recipe gets an extra boost from matcha powder - top with fresh fruit or yogurt for a vibrant green breakfast or hearty weekend brunch.


2 tsp matcha powder

60g spinach

100ml milk

200g self raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

2 tbsp maple syrup

½ tsp vanilla extract

3 eggs

25g butter, melted plus extra for frying


To serve (optional)

handful green grapes

few mint leaves

1 green apple or pear sliced

4 tbsp lime marmalade or lime curd, warmed

4 tbsp natural yogurt



Method

Put the matcha powder, spinach and milk into a blender and whizz up until smooth. Pour it into a bowl with the rest of the pancake ingredients and whisk until the mixture is lump-free.

Melt a small knob of butter in a large non-stick pan then start frying the pancakes making each one from approx. 2 tbsp batter. Cook them for 2-3 mins then flip over and cook for another minute on the reverse. You will need to do this in 3 or 4 batches depending on the size of your frying pan.

Serve the pancakes stacked up with plenty of green fruit and a drizzle of warm lime curd or marmalade if you like.
