matcha truffles

Another sweet treat in the shape of delicious little balls! I love having healthy snacks on hand all the time. With a busy schedule it is absolutely essential to have something to grab on the go that fits with my diet. These truffles hold us so well and they have a caffeine kick thanks to matcha green tea! To find out a little more about matcha green tea, visit my earlier post of matcha + greens smoothie.

matcha truffles

  • 1 cup soaked dates
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp matcha green tea
  • 1/2 Tbsp greens powder (optional; Garden of Life Perfect Food or Aloha Daily Good Greens are both good choices)
  • 3/4 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • hemp seeds and sesame seeds for coating

Process dates, coconut oil, and salt in food processor until smooth. Add matcha green tea, greens powder, and almond meal and process until fully combined. Add the oat flour a few tablespoons at a time until it gets too doughy for the food processor. Transfer dough to a mixing bowl and add remaining oat flour by hand.

Roll into small balls and roll through chosen coatings; I chose sesame seeds and hemp seeds!

Store in the refrigerator and pack them wherever you go!
