Vegan Matcha Waffles Recipe

Vegan Matcha Waffles


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (or gluten-free flour blend)
  • 1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (or maple syrup)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted (or vegetable oil)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water (flax egg)


1. Prepare Flax or Chia seed Egg:

- In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed(or chia seeds) with 3 tablespoons of water. Stir well and let sit for about 5 minutes until it thickens.

2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, matcha powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

3. Combine Wet Ingredients:
- In another bowl, mix the almond milk, vanilla extract, and melted coconut oil. Add the flax egg and stir to combine.

4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; some lumps are okay.

5. Preheat Waffle Iron:
- Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Lightly grease it with oil or non-stick spray.

6. Cook the Waffles:
- Pour the batter onto the preheated waffle iron (amount will vary depending on your waffle iron size). Cook until the waffles are golden brown and crisp, typically 3-5 minutes.

7. Serve:
- Serve the waffles warm with your favorite toppings such as fresh berries, maple syrup, coconut yogurt, or a dusting of powdered sugar.
