Raw Matcha Energy Balls

Raw Matcha Energy Balls

Perfect on-the-go snack to fuel your body. Gluten-free and vegan, will nourish your body and carve your sweet craving!

Filled with amazing superfood like matcha powder, almonds and coconut, this raw energy balls are what I have been snacking on in between meals or before a workout. If you dont like matcha (YOU WHAT???, …joking, haha – but , yes seriously how could you not?), you can replace it with raw cocoa powder.

You can store them in your fridge for up to 1 week, but trust me, they will not last THAT long 🙂

Ingredients (makes 12 balls):

  •  1 cup activated almonds
  • 5 pitted dates
  • 1 tsp matcha powder
  • 1/2 cup dry coconut + 1/4 cup for rolling
  • a pinch of Himalaya salt
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil

Place all the ingredients into a food processor

Blend until a paste form. You might have to stop blending and scrape down the size of the container a few times. Depending on how powerful your food processor is, it might take a few minutes. Keep working at it.

Roll out the mixture into 12 ball

Coat them in dry coconut

and refrigerate for a few hours to settle.
