Matcha Balls Ingredients
To make these delicious matcha balls, you'll only need 9 ingredients:
- Oats (gluten-free)
- Shredded coconut
- Matcha powder - Matcha green tea powder is a great supplement to add to your diet. My favorite is the MATCHA DNA brand which is certified organic with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
- Medjool dates
- Coconut butter or cream cheese
- Maple syrup (sugar-free) - I recommend Lankanto Sugar Free Maple Syrup which is sweetened with monkfruit. It only contains 1 gram of net carbs per serving and is great in coffee, tea, pancakes and loads of other keto recipes!
- Vanilla extract
- Sea salt
How To Make Green Tea Matcha Balls
You don't need any skills or special equipment to make these delicious matcha balls. All that's required is a blender or food processor! Follow the steps below to make them:
Take your blender or food processor and add the oats, shredded coconut, matcha powder, soaked dates, butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, nutmeg and salt. Blend all the ingredients together until they're well combined.
Take a serving plate and shape the mixture into bite-sized balls. This recipe makes 15 match balls but you can easily adjust the recipe if you'd like to make a larger batch.
You can optionally roll the matcha energy balls in extra matcha powder or shredded coconut to garnish.
In the fridge: Store your matcha balls in an airtight container in the fridge where they'll keep for up to 2 weeks.
In the freezer: If you want to make a larger batch and store them in the freezer (a great idea for meal preppers) these matcha balls freeze great! Simply store them in a freezer proof container and when you're ready to enjoy them let them thaw (you can pop them in the fridge the day before).
