Pistachio Pancakes with Matcha

IMG_6282We love our green pancakes! These ones have an added superfood boost of Matcha powder, which is absolutely packed with antioxidants (we use Matcha Maiden).

To create the pistachio flavour, blend raw pistachio nuts until ground to use as a ‘flour’. We have used ground pistachios in combination with buckwheat flour as this makes it much easier to flip! We recommend serving with additional pistachio nuts, greek yoghurt (or a dairy-free alliterative) and a light drizzle of organic, raw honey.

Delicious weekend breakfast that (as always) is packed with essential vitamins and nutrients.

We hope you enjoy!

1/4 cup buckwheat flour
