Gluten Free Matcha Pancakes

Simple, Quick, and Surprisingly Delicious

You deserve a moment of pure happiness each morning. Waking up is hard enough, but waking up in winter is next level. There's no better motivation to fight the morning cold than a hot stack of fresh, fluffy pancakes. 

These Matcha Pancakes are gluten free, dairy free, and so simple to make. They're composed of just two main ingredients: eggs and bananas. You'll never guess that they don't have flour or milk but your body will thank you for leaving those ingredients behind.

Delicately spiced with Tenzo Premium Matcha Powder and a little cinnamon, these gluten- free pancakes are even more delicious than the original. Start your day with potassium, protein, and just a touch of clean green caffeine.  You'll head to work satisfied, engaged and ready to rock. 

Tenzo Matcha Pancakes


  • There’s no flour in the pancakes, so they can fall apart easily. Be sure to keep the pancakes small, about the size of your palm, they’ll be easier to handle and hold up better. 

  • Be careful when flipping the pancakes, it helps to use a thin spatula that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray 

  • Add nuts, chocolate chips or any other toppings after the pancake is on the skillet.

  • Customize with your favorite flavors. Try a nutella version instead of cinnamon, or use our Matcha Blueberry and fresh blueberries to make blueberry banana matcha pancakes!


Tenzo Matcha Green Tea Pancakes 


  • 2 Eggs

  • 2 Ripe Bananas

  • 1 teaspoon Tenzo Premium Matcha Powder

  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon powder

  • 1 tablespoon Honey

  • For Garnish: greek yogurt, and your favorite seasonal fresh fruit and nuts. 

Mash Bananas for Matcha Pancakes


  1. Peel bananas, break into smaller pieces and place in a mixing bowl. Mash the bananas with a fork or metal whisk.

  2. Whisk in eggs and cinnamon powder and continue to whisk to form a fluffy batter.

  3. In a separate small bowl, whisk together Tenzo Premium Matcha Powder and honey until a paste forms. Then gently stir the matcha honey mixture into the pancake batter.

  4. Heat a griddle over medium heat and grease with ¼ teaspoon of coconut oil. 

  5. Drop the batter on a hot griddle: Drop roughly 2 tablespoons of batter onto the hot griddle. This would be a good time to add nuts, chocolate chips or berries if desired.

  6. Cook for about one minute on each side. Then gently (and slowly, these babies are delicate) flip with a spatula.

  7. Top with yogurt, fresh berries, nuts(we used raspberries and pistachios), and some maple syrup or honey. Enjoy!
