  • Yields: 4 to 6 Waffles (Depending on your iron)


2 cups gluten-free flour

3 tbsp granulated sugar

2 tbsp matcha green tea powder

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

2 large eggs

6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled

Cooking Spray

Ginger Maple Butter


1Preheat your waffle iron to medium-high

2In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, tea powder, baking powder and salt.

3In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and yogurt; set aside.

4Using a whisk or electric mixer, whip the egg whites to firm peaks.

5Stir the yogurt mixture in the flour mixture. Stir in the butter. With a rubber spatula, gently stir in one-third of the egg whites. Fold in the remaining egg whites just until incorporated being careful not to over mix.

6Spray your waffle iron with cooking spray and spoon about 1/2 up of batter onto it.

7Cook until golden brown and slightly crisp, about 3 minutes.

8Serve immediately or place in a reheated 200°F oven if making in batches.

Make a big batch of these and freeze them individually. When you’re pressed for time, just pop them into the toaster or oven to reheat.
