Enjoy the health benefits of matcha green tea and MCTs with these Matcha Bliss Bites! Or as we like to call them, easy-to-make, delicious, power-packed balls of goodness.
To all our matcha lovers – you can’t go wrong with these Matcha Bliss Bites. First, they’re bliss balls, and who doesn’t love bliss balls? Second, they’re loaded with nutrients and antioxidants. Third, they’re made with only 5 ingredients and only take 5-10 minutes to make!
We know finding healthy snacks to eat can sometimes become stressful and time consuming, which is why we wanted to create a recipe you could make in under 10 minutes. They’re so great to have on hand to munch on throughout the week.
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut shreds, plus more for rolling
1 scoop Matcha Organic MCT Powder
1 cup pitted dates
1/4 cup almond butter (or nut butter of your preference)
Add almond flour and coconut shreds to a food processor, and pulse just until combined.
Add Organic Matcha MCT Powder, and pulse again just until combined.
Add pitted dates, and pulse until the dates are well mixed. At this point, the mixture should be a little sticky, but not sticky enough to hold together in a ball.
Add almond butter (or other nut butter), and pulse until the mixture sticks together.
Roll “dough” into even-sized balls, and coat them with more coconut shreds. If you’d like to can coat them in cocoa powder, cacao nibs, or anything your heart desires.
The best part of these bliss balls, though, is that they’re made with Organic Matcha MCT Powder! Amongst its many health benefits, matcha is loaded with antioxidants, boosts metabolism, helps burn calories, is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins, detoxifies the body naturally, and so much more.
To top that off, Nutiva’s Organic MCT Powder delivers digestible fatty acids that give the brain, muscles and other tissues fast and sustained energy!
Basically, what we’re trying to say is that these bites make the perfect wholesome (or should we say powerhouse) snack when you’re craving something sweet, but don’t want to ruin all your hard efforts in the gym. It is a new year after all!
They’re also refined-sugar-free (thank you, dates!), and because they’re loaded with healthy fats, one or two will satisfy your craving.
