A light and delicious matcha soufflé pancakes for when you’re just feeling extra fancy.

If you want to serve something a little more fancy and exciting than your regular pancakes, try this matcha soufflé pancake recipe! It’s tasty and light—not to mention healthy as can be. This is not your basic pancake!

Pretty and sweet, this little treat will earn you plenty of compliments. But the real prize is how good for you this pancake soufflé is.

The rolled oats will give you strength and energy, and the matcha green tea powder is a powerful entity all on its own.

Packed full of antioxidants, the matcha powder helps to detoxify your body, removing heavy metals and chemical toxins. You’ll get an immunity boost, as well as a calm mental relaxation that lasts for hours, with increased focus and concentration.

Matcha tea powder contains lots of L-theanine, an amino acid with psychoactive properties that induces alpha wave activity in the brain, which relieves stress and can lower blood pressure. L-theanine also helps produce dopamine and serotonin, which enhance your mood.

So matcha powder is a definite welcome addition to any meal, wouldn’t you agree?

Please note that this matcha soufflé pancake recipe works best when you have a mousse ring (or some sort of stainless steel food ring), a hand mixer, and parchment paper.

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup plain flour

  • 1 teaspoon Epic Matcha green tea powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla paste
