Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
Matcha powder is rich in polyphenols, antioxidants that have been shown to protect against cancer and heart disease. Since matcha contains up to three times as much caffeine as steeped tea, these pancakes will help you to wake up and get started with your day! The whole wheat flour provides fiber and B vitamins while the creamy avocado-based topping provides potassium, which is necessary for proper muscle function, and monounsaturated fats, which can lower LDL cholesterol and help to reduce inflammation.
