These flapjacks are the best! We've been rambling about the benefits of oats before, and these flapjacks are fabulous to bring some variety in your breakfasts! Matcha adds delicious flavour and incredible nutritional benefits, making this an overall healthy start of your day.

Matcha tea is delicious on it's own, but the Matcha culinary grade also makes it easy to add Matcha goodness to your smoothies, and treats. In this recipe we've just used 1 teaspoon Matcha which gives it a light flavour, however you can add an additional ½ teaspoon for a more pungent Matcha taste.

If you'd like to make this recipe vegan, you can just leave the egg out, mix 1 tablespoon flax meal with 3 tablespons of hot water, and add this mix to the batter.

Ingredients (for 8-10 flapjacks):

  • ½ C Oats
  • ¼ C Coconut Flakes
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Just Matcha culinary grade
  • 1 Banana
  • ¾ C Milk or non-dairy
  • 1 Free-range Egg
  •  

    Directions:

    Add oats and coconut flakes to the OmniBlend jug (the 2ltr jug works best for grinding dry ingredients), and blend to a flour. Add the remaining ingredients to the jug and blend again, for 20 to 30 seconds for a fluffy consistency. Leave to stand for a few minutes to thicken slightly.

    Heat up a pan on low-medium heat, add a teaspoon coconut oil and bake the flapjacks.

    Serve with syrup, maple syrup, or honey.
