Recipe: Raw Matcha Energy Balls

March 1, 2019

Are you wondering what all the buzz of matcha is about?

Matcha is literally the powdered version of the entire green tea leaf plant with up to 137 times MORE antioxidants than regularly brewed green tea. And on top of that, it boosts metabolism, calms the mind, relaxes the nervous system  (something coffee can’t brag to), enhances concentration, balances blood sugar, and gives a sustained hit of energy without the tumultuous crash.

You can’t beat the nutritional (and metaphysical) benefits of the tasty little treat. Now that’s what we call a snack.

Oh, and did we mention that they taste really freaking good? It’s a match-a made in heaven (sorry, had to…).

Raw Matcha Energy Balls

Yields 12-15

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup medjool dates, pitted (soak in water for ~1 hour if overly dry)
  • 1 cup raw cashews (soaked overnight)
  • 1 TBSP extra-virgin coconut oil
  • 2 TBSP organic maple syrup
  • 1 TBSP matcha powder (we love Panatea!)
  • 3 TBSP shredded coconut
  • 2 TBSP hemp seeds

For the coating:

  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 2-3 tsp matcha powder
  • 3 TBSP goji berries, coarsely chopped

Directions:

Place all ball ingredients in a food processor. Blend until just combined and sticky enough to roll together. For the coating, mix shredded coconut and matcha powder and spread onto a small plate. Spread chopped goji berries onto a separate small plate. Use a measuring tablespoon to tightly scoop the dough. Place dough in between your palms and roll around to form ball-shape. Press the ball once in the goji berry plate, then transfer to the matcha coconut plate. Lightly press and roll the ball until well-coated. Repeat with the rest of the dough!

Store in the fridge for extra firmness, or the freezer to use later.
