Homemade matcha pancakes served with fruits and topped with kinako

Some people don’t like Mondays – but with Matcha Green Tea Pancakes to start the week with, who could complain?!

This delicious homemade recipe is brought to us at Kenko Tea by the super talented Carmen Chan from @cahmun.

Carmen Chan is a nutrition student from Vancouver who loves to document the delicious things she eats and how she creates them on her instagram,Cahmun.

Now, just because Carmen’s Matcha Green Tea Pancakes are easy to make, that doesn’t mean they’re like the fast food versions we know – it’s all sugar-free, with sweetness coming from natural honey. You can top your pancake stack with condensed milk if you like, or just cover it with fresh fruits like mangoes and peaches, which pair very well with the matcha green tea flavour.

The Kinako powder that is used for the topping is simply roasted soybean flour, a popular culinary ingredient from Japan. It’s mostly used in rice cakes like mochi and similar desserts, with a nutty taste that’s very distinctive. Kinako is gluten free and full of vitamin B and protein.

If you can’t find it in the stores, check out this link for how to make your own Kinako - it’s a great alternative to wheat flour.

Now, let’s get the week started right with Carmen Chan’s delicious Matcha Green Tea Pancakes:

Organic Matcha Ceremonial Grade - 100g Bag (3.5oz)

Lovely green color powder

First matcha purchase!

So far I have made tea cookies, raw nut/fruit balls, smoothies, and plain matcha with cashew milk and it's all good to me! Don't have much to compare it to but a chain coffee shop latte experience years ago. I learned the amazing benefits that make the cost of matcha well worth the price.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
