Yield: 12-15 Balls
Paleo, Grain-free, Gluten-free, Refined Sugar-free, Dairy-free, Vegan Optional
Matcha is a superfood that seriously fuels. It’s a powerful antioxidant that both energizes and calms the body — which is why we love the idea of using it in protein energy balls. In this recipe, matcha is mixed with plant-based protein powders, nut or seed butters, and healthy fats like coconut oil to create two-bites of energizing bliss.
This recipe is almost a one-bowl wonder. That said, it’s still incredibly easy to prepare. You can also make this recipe in bulk and store the energy balls in the freezer to create a healthy on-the-go snack. These energy protein balls can frozen for up to 30 days, but don’t be surprised if they’re all consumed well before then!
