2x matcha pancakes with Coco Start

8 small pancakes | prep time 12 min | cook time 25


  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 250 almond milk
  • 2 tbsp Abbot Kinney’s Coco Start
  • 75 g almond flour
  • 60 g spelt flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp matcha powder


  1. Grind the flax seed for 10 to 15 seconds, or until the seeds have turned into a very fine, ground meal.
  2. Prepare flax egg: In a small bowl, whisk together flax and water and set aside for 5-7
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and matcha powder together.
  4. Add the Abbot Kinney’s Coco Start, flax egg, and milk and stir until everything is well incorporated.
  5. Heat a large pan over medium-low heat. We like cooking our pancakes on low heat to prevent them from burning too quickly.
  6. Add coconut oil to the pan and pour in some batter. Cook until you see that the edges of the pancakes start to puff up, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip over and cook for another 2 minutes.
