Healthy Green Tea (Matcha) Chia Seed Pancakes




Making pancakes used to be my favorite activity on Sunday mornings and I have definitely missed it. Over the weekend, I decided to put on my apron and get back into it! This time, I gave Matcha Green Tea and Chia Seed a try and it was such a pleasant surprise! My parents especially liked these pancakes because they were not as sweet and heavy as the normal ones. So I thought I would share the recipe with you all!

Ingredients
Pancakes

Chia Seed x 1 tbsp
Steviana x 2 tbsp (superfood - healthy substitute of sugar)
Baking Powder x 1.5 tsp
Homemade Almond Milk x 1.5 Cup (Recipe in previous blogpost: http://stayfitandtravel.blogspot.hk/2014/11/homemade-almond-milk.html)
Whole Egg x 1 
Coconut Oil x 2 tbsp
A pinch of salt

Toppings

Pure Honey
Fresh Blueberries
Sprinked with Wild Lingonberry Powder (https://berrytime.com/products/biokia-wild-lingonberry-powder)


Directions
Whisk milk, egg and coconut oil in a mixing bowl and then add in flour, matcha powder, steviana and baking powder. Stir until they are well mixed together. Sprinkle a pinch of salt into the batter and then fold in the chia seeds.

Heat up a pan (low to medium heat) and brush the pan with coconut oil. Scoop the batter onto the heated pan (I used two spoonfuls of batter for one pancake). Cook until you can see bubbles appearing on one side and then flip the pancakes and cook the other side until they turn golden brown. 

You can then stack the pancakes together and add your favorite toppings! Simple and quick, there you have your guilt-free and yummy green tea pancakes!! Don't forget to take a photo of these beautiful hot cakes before you eat so you can show them off on instagram! :D
