Who wants ordinary waffles when you can have these amazing Matcha Green Tea Waffles instead? Wow, they are so delicious and easy to make with your trusty waffle maker!
These matcha waffles are so fluffy from the whipped egg whites, and a bit crispy on the edges. The matcha flavor is very subtle and gives the waffles a nice greenish hue. Aren't these matcha green tea waffles the prettiest things?
The waffle batter has a beautiful green hue from the matcha powder.
My mother-in-law had given me her tried-and-true waffle maker that she's used for probably more than 50 years. The plug was a bit scary but it didn't spark and cause a fire, thank the lord! But I have to tell you, the waffles came out perfectly!
Some waffle makers have squares and some have rounds. Either way, these waffles will cook up beautifully with whatever appliance you use!

- Heat a waffle maker on high heat or according to the waffle maker’s instructions.
- Sift the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl (flour, matcha powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt). In a small bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form and set aside.
- In another large mixing bowl whisk together the egg yolks, coconut milk, and vanilla extract. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mixing well to combine and gently fold in the whisked egg whites.
- Using a ladle, scoop the batter one ladle at a time into each section of the waffle maker, close the lid and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the edges start to turn golden brown. Repeat until all of the batter is used up.
- Top the matcha waffles with fresh blueberries (or mixed berries) and drizzle with organic maple syrup. Makes approximately 10 to 12 waffles.
These waffles will freeze well for up to 3 months, if you have any leftovers!
