Matcha Protein Pancakes

I made these to end my jealousy with green pancakes popping up on my instagram feed every damn minute. There’s a simple reason they’re so popular – they taste amazing. They’re so quick to make too – there’s no excuse for a bowl of processed, sugary cereal. Matcha comes with some awesome health benefits too, including a metabolism boost and super amounts of antioxidants. Time to get flippin’.





  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 scoop (30g) natural vanilla protein
  • 1 tablespoon cottage cheese
  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flakes
  • 1 passion fruit
  • edible flowers to garnish (optional)

  1. In a blender, process the matcha, egg whites, protein, cottage cheese and baking powder.
  2. Spray a non-stick frying pan with a little coconut oil, then pour in the batter – around 1/4 cup at a time.
  3. Cook for a few minutes on each side and repeat until the batter is used up.
  4. Top with coconut, passionfruit pulp and flowers, if using.
