Serves: 8
Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes


  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil or melted butter + extra for frying
  • 1/4 cup unrefined sugar (e.g., coconut palm sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons matcha powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

Optional toppings: Greek yogurt, fresh raspberries, macadamia nuts, pepitas, chia seeds, maple syrup


  1. In a large bowl, thoroughly whisk together egg, milk, vegetable oil (or melted butter), sugar, and vanilla extract.
  2. Add flour, matcha powder, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until combined and batter comes together. It will be thick and, of course, very green.
  3. Heat a cast-iron skillet over moderate heat. Brush with vegetable oil or butter.
  4. Using a 1/4-cup measure, transfer small mounds of pancake batter onto skillet. You can use a spatula to help even out the circle.
  5. Once bubbles appear and pop on the surface of pancake, carefully flip pancakes and cook for another minute or so.
  6. Stack pancakes and serve hot with butter, maple syrup, and whatever other toppings you desire.
