Waffles are a favorite weekend brunch for me. I like the fact that they are easier than pancakes, with a similar result, and that the different variations are endless. They are also very photogenic!

Often I create recipes with how they will look visually in mind, as well as how they will taste. These matcha waffles came about because I love the taste of Japanese matcha green tea powder, and thought that in a waffle recipe it would add a beautiful green hue along with its earthy flavor.

They pair well with berries and yoghurt, or spread nut butter and banana on them. The recipe is gluten free, and you could easily swap out the almond flour for another gluten free flour if you like them nut free.
