Wow Waffles! These delicious waffle sticks get a nutritional boost from matcha green tea powder. Matcha’s nutritional properties have been shown to help with everything from lowering cholesterol to regulating blood sugar levels. If you’ve tried green tea, you may be surprised by the flavor of matcha. It’s strong and earthy with just a hint of sweetness. The maple syrup in these waffles helps enhance the natural taste of the tea leaves while packaging it all in a kid-friendly dunking stick.

WHERE TO GET IT
1. In a large bowl combine the whole wheat flour, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and matcha powder. Set aside.
2. Using a whisk, gently add the eggs, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract, almond milk, and coconut to the batter.
3. Heat a waffle-stick iron to medium-high. (Alternatively, you can use a regular waffle iron and slice the waffles into sticks after they’re cooked.) Following the directions on your iron, pour about ¼ cup of batter into each slot and cook 3-4 minutes or until waffles are firm. Remove from iron and let cool slightly.
4. Serve with maple syrup.
