Zap your morning drowsiness with a hot plate of these delicious vegan matcha mochi waffles! Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, these mochi waffles are a dream for texture lovers. 


Hey guys! I really like to blog, but I haven't prioritized it in the past year. I think about it, but then, something else takes up my time and attention. I mean this first draft of this blog has been sitting in my draft section for 3 months now.

What motivated me to say screw it and blog was this book: The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins. I listened to it on Audible this past week and this book was inspirational. For anyone that ever feels self-doubt, stuck in a rut or needs to hear a speech to kick start your gears into action, this book is for you. If you give this book a try, let me know how it goes! I hope it inspires you to start doing things you normally wouldn't do or things you've been trying to get a start on. :) 

Vegan Matcha Green Tea Mochi Waffles


Shoutout to my bff Manisha for asking me to make matcha mochi waffles with her. Otherwise, these probably would have never come to be!

If I'm a lover of anything, it would be matcha and mochi. Matcha croissant? Down. Matcha boba? Double down. Matcha ice cream with mochi on top? Infinitely down! And, I know I'm not alone on this boat. The matcha craze seems to be increasing to the clouds since 2012, especially in Hawaii, New York and California, based on the Google trend data below:

If you're from any of the above regions, do you agree with Google that the matcha interest has shot up in your region?

Vegan Matcha Green Tea Mochi Waffles
Zap your morning drowsiness with a hot plate of these delicious vegan matcha mochi waffles! Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, these mochi waffles are a dream for texture lovers.
Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: Total time: Servings: 5 Serving Size: 3 waffles
Dry Ingredients
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup Mochiko flour (sweet/glutinous rice flour)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder (ceremonial or culinary grade)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoon corn starch
Wet Ingredients
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoon water)
  • 1 1/2 cup alternative milk (I used macadamia nut milk.)
  • 3 tablespoon oil
Other Ingredients
  • Oil spray
  • Honey and fruit for topping (optional)
Instructions
1. Whisk dry ingredients in a large bowl. Make sure to mix well. Nobody likes to eat a clump of baking soda. 2. Whisk wet ingredients in a smaller bowl. 3. Mix wet and dry ingredients together until consistency is thick and goopy. 4. Preheat your waffle iron and spray with oil. 5. Spoon in your batter into your waffle iron and cook your waffles as you normally do. (My waffle maker took about 3-4 minutes per batch.) 6. Finish with toppings!


Here's the photo story of making vegan matcha green tea mochi waffles.
Step 1: Whisk dry ingredients in a large bowl. Make sure to mix well so that no clumps survive. Nobody likes to eat a clump of baking soda (yes, this happened to me and it was probably that green clump pictured above -_-).
Step 2: Whisk wet ingredients in a smaller bowl.
Step 3: Mix wet and dry ingredients together until consistency is thick and goopy. 
Step 4: Preheat your waffle iron and spray with oil. 
Step 5: Spoon in your batter into your waffle iron and cook your waffles as you normally do. 
La la la~ Waiting for my waffles to cook away. At this point, I like to press down on the lid to really make the shapes come out and make my waffles as crispy as possible. 
Tada~! I have a rabbit, a giraffe and an elephant in my waffle zoo. 
I peeled away the sides in a not so clean way, but admire that texture, browning and iconic waffle look. Yaaaaaaas~

Step 6: Finish with toppings! I like honey and fresh fruit on my waffles.
