Who doesn't love a tall stack of fluffy pancakes? These are the perfect treat for weekend brunch, or also great frozen and popped in the toaster for a quick weekday breakfast or snack. I recently whipped up a stack of these ombre matcha pancakes. The secret ingredient? NuttZo 7 Nut and Seed nut butter. If you're a matcha fan, your tastebuds (and eyes) will swoon; and, if you're a nut butter fanatic, this recipe is for you. There's nut butter everywhere here: in the pancakes themselves, and don't forget the huge spoonful on top!

7 Nut and Seed you might ask? Yes! Each bottle of NuttZo is packed with 7 different types of nuts and seeds, which gives it an extra nutty punch, and crunchy texture from all the little seeds. Adding this to the batter makes the pancakes extra nutty and moist, and you can  even see specks of nuts and seeds in them!

For this recipe I used the Power Fuel NuttZo, which has cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, flax seeds, hazelnuts, chia seeds and pumpkin seeds, all organic and roasted to bring out the nutty flavor. I used Matcha Maiden matcha which is organic and sourced from Kyoto, Japan. 

So what are you waiting for? Run to the kitchen and make this recipe that you'll go matcha NuttZo for!
