The Bari Blast (1 Serving)

  • 1 scoop of PANATEA Ceremonial or Culinary matcha
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup of soy milk (or any milk preference)
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar (or alternate sugar/sweetener)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1/2 cup of oat flour
  • 3 tablespoons of gluten-free flour (or more depending on your oat flour, this recipe used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pancake Mix)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  1. In a large bowl, combine and whisk together all wet ingredients: egg, milk, coconut oil, vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine and whisk together all dry ingredients: matcha, coconut sugar, oat flour, gluten-free flour, baking powder, salt.
  3. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, and whisk into a batter (some lumps are normal).
  4. Place 1/4 cup of batter on a non-stick cooking pan over medium-low heat (if you don't have non-stick pans, simply brush your pan with a little coconut oil).
  5. Flip the pancake when bubbles begin to form around the edges – this is crucial for thick and fluffy results (do not wait to flip until the top is nearly fully cooked).
  6. Repeat until all batter is used.
  7. Serve hot with maple syrup, honey or fruit (such as the below caramelized apples)!
Caramelized Apples
  • Dice 1-2 fresh apple(s) into bite size squares.
  • Heat a non-stick pan (such as the above pancake one) with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 tablespoon of minced fresh rosemary and 1 teaspoon of coconut sugar.
  • Place the apples in pan until fully warmed through and caramelized to golden brown.
  • Serve warm on top of the pancakes.
