AAPPLEMINT X MISU
I mean who doesn’t love pancakes !?! Big pancakes, small ones ! Sweet pancakes and oh my – savoury ones !
I cannot even begin to tell you the amount of things you can do with pancakes. Flavours and kinds of pancakes, the accompaniment with pancakes, what time of the day pancakes …
And right now, I’m thinking Tropical Holiday feel Pancakes !
How about some Japanese Green tea Matcha Pancakes !?!
Put together for House Of Misu these bite sized pancakes are sure to make you coming back for more.
These pancakes are as easy to put together as your regular ones. Just need to make sure you have the ingredients stocked up. I’ve used Green Mung bean flour as it is an extremely nutritious option. Mung beans are a high source of nutrients including: manganese, potassium, magnesium, folate, copper, zinc and various B vitamins. They are also a very filling food, high in protein, resistant starch and dietary fiber. That with some whole wheat flour or substitute with a gluten free flour mix of your choice, and you have a great base for your pancakes.
Vegan option would be substitute the egg for a flax egg.
Flax egg is basically 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds mixed with 3 tablespoons of water. Rest for 15 minutes and you have a vegan egg.
- – You can substitute the flours to Spelt, Buckwheat, Oat flour or anything that works for you .
- – This recipe has 1 tsp of Matcha, you can add more to make the colour greener, or a richer taste. I just feel they tend to get bitter, so do give it a taste test if you wish to add more
- – Its nice to lightly sweeten the pancake batter. You can use Jaggery sugar, honey or maple syrup – any healthy sweetener you like. I omitted the sweetener this time as we do have a chocolate drizzle on top and a whole lot of fresh sweet fruits to go with it.
