These matcha pancakes are not only healthy, but easy to make! All you need is two eggs, 2 bananas, 2 tbs of matcha, vanilla, baking powder and a skillet! Add peanut butter if you'd like - makes for a thicker cake!
Your bananas should be a few days ripe - makes for easy mashing. Once you mash your bananas, add 2tbs baking powder, 1 tsp vanilla, and 2 eggs. Mix it up! I use a spoon but you can use a mixer to make it go faster. I like my batter to have a few lumps of banana, but I've made it super smooth, too!
Once your batter is ready, add your matcha. I usually put in 2 tablespoons, but you can add more if you want more matcha-y taste!
Spray your skillet with a oil of your choice - I use a olive oil type spray. You will need to re-apply the spray between each cake, so have it handy! These cakes can still pretty easily!
The trick to these is don't try to flip them too soon, I promise they aren't burnt on the bottom!! My rule of thumb is to wait until the cake batter on the top is bubbled all over and those bubbles have popped making it look like they have little craters. If you flip too soon the cake will fall apart. Because there isn't flower in these, you are letting the baking powder and the banana cook together completely and firm up.
Adding peanut butter does help with a quicker cook time and a more "beefy" pancake. :)
I eat mine with sugar free syrup and sometimes a fruit compote of whatever fresh berries I have on hand.
