Matcha Waffles (Gluten Free and Vegan) from HeatherChristo.com

Ok, I hope these are not too crazy for you!?

I am a huge green tea fan, but strangely only recently got really into matcha, and how I could use it in recipes too.

I make waffles for the kids a lot. They have been going through a waffles vs pancake phase. I have been going through a toasted green tea in the morning phase. One recent morning I was sipping my green tea while making their waffles and it occurred to me that I should just put the matcha IN the waffles. Well, turned out that was a good call- even the girls thought so.

However, it seemed strange to drown these pretty waffles in syrup (I know, I never thought I would hear myself say such a thing) so a pretty fruit salad and a sprinkle of powdered sugar went over the top instead. It was the perfect topping for these waffles, and the kids just folded them over with all of the fruit and sugar trapped inside and ate them like a sandwich. You have to admire their creativity!

I hope you enjoy these as much as we did! If you do want more of a “sauce” on top – I recommend this raspberry sauce!
