RECIPE: Matcha Protein Waffles, 32.5g protein per serve

RECIPE: Matcha Protein Waffles, 32.5g protein per serve

At Eve we’re BIG into breakfast. ‘Breakfast obsessed’ is a mantle we wear with pride and we think we’ve reached new heights of fast-breaking perfection with these Matcha Protein Waffles. 

Packed with the goodness of matcha and a hearty dose of protein, these waffles might just be the best thing we’ve ever added to our morning routine. 

Benefits of matcha:

Matcha is having a major moment. A finely ground powder of specially grown green tea leaves, it isn't just a trendy ingredient; it's a powerhouse of health benefits. Rich in antioxidants, matcha helps boost metabolism, enhance focus, and promote overall well-being. With its vibrant green hue, it adds not only colour but also a beautifully bitter note to your dishes. Incorporating matcha into your breakfast routine is a delicious way to start your day, adding in additional wellness benefits. The recipe uses our Matcha Latte blend which contains premium grade organic matcha from the blossom-laced shores of Japan. 

Protein is not to be missed, especially for women:

Protein is often hailed as the building block of life, and for good reason. It plays a crucial role in repairing and building tissues, supporting muscle growth, and maintaining a healthy metabolism. For women, adequate protein intake is particularly important, as it can help support hormonal balance, boost satiety, support balanced blood sugar levels and preserve lean muscle mass. If you’re doing lots of exercise, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, focusing on your protein intake becomes even more important. Yet, many of us fall short on our protein goals, especially at breakfast. By incorporating protein-rich foods into your morning meal, you set yourself up for sustained energy and vitality throughout the day.

Recipe: Matcha Protein Waffles

Serves: 2 | Protein per Serve: 32.5g

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 full scoop protein powder (your choice of flavor)
  • 3 tsp Eve Matcha Latte blend
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1.5 tbsp oil (coconut or avocado oil works well)
  • 180ml milk of choice (we used almond)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour, protein powder, matcha powder, baking powder, salt, and oat flour. Mix until well combined.
  2. Add in the oil, milk, egg, mashed banana, and vanilla extract  and combine until smooth.
  3. Preheat your waffle iron and lightly grease if necessary.
  4. Pour the batter onto the preheated waffle iron, spreading it evenly. Close the lid and cook until golden brown and crispy. This took 6 minutes in our waffle iron, but will depend on your iron. Cook in batches if necessary until all the batter is used up. 
  5. Once cooked, carefully remove the waffles from the iron and place them on a plate.
  6. Serve the waffles warm, topped with a dollop of yogurt, a drizzle of maple syrup, your favorite fruits, and a sprinkle of matcha powder for an extra boost of flavor and antioxidants.

With these Matcha Protein Waffles, you can nourish your body with the goodness it deserves while giving your tastebuds to an absolute treat. Bland beige breakfasts can bugger off. Morning rituals that fuel your day are where it's at. And when they happen to be green and cute, even better. So, grab your ingredients, fire up that waffle iron, and get ready to meet your new favourite breakfast. 

Warning: anyone in close proximity to you at the time of making these may steal these from you so they can eat them all. We speak from experience here.
