Einkorn Matcha Waffles
These matcha einkorn waffles are an awesome wake-me-up breakfast! Matcha is a type of green tea powder that is rich in antioxidants. Matcha contains caffeine, so you can skip your morning caffeinated drink of choice.
These matcha einkorn waffles are fantastic! The texture of einkorn is amazing and it is my favorite type of ancient grain flour to bake with. I have a waffle maker that makes my waffles in the shape of Texas. It takes about 5 tbsp of batter to make my waffles, but mileage may vary based on the type of waffle maker you use. Avoid overfilling your waffle maker by using large spoonfuls and slowly pouring the batter into wherever it’s needed.
These matcha waffles make an affordable, satisfying meal. Waffles are best served with powdered sugar, jam, maple syrup, or honey.
My favorite ancient grain flour to bake with is einkorn. The texture of einkorn is phenomenal, and I use it often for many kinds of recipes. Einkorn also makes great pancakes! Einkorn pancakes are my favorite kind of pancakes, and I have many einkorn pancake recipes to keep you in the kitchen for a long time! 😉
Einkorn has only 14 chromosomes, which is much less than modern genetically engineered grains, which makes it easier to digest compared to other modern-day wheat varieties. Einkorn is a light grain, and can suitably replace any other type of wheat in a recipe at a 1:1 ratio. I use einkorn frequently for baking, along with ancient grains such as spelt and rye.
I have members of my family who have wheat sensitivities who do to react better to ancient grains such as einkorn, spelt, and rye. However, you should definitely take caution and speak to a medical professional first if this applies to you.
