Chocolate Matcha Balls

Chocolate Matcha Balls

Eating healthy doesn't mean you can't have yummy treats.

In fact, quite the opposite! This is actually a recipe from my 10 Day Detox! I'm serious! Its also a snack both my husband and I really enjoy. 

Ingredients:

  • 7 medjool dates, pitted
  • ½ cup whole raw almonds
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 1 tbsp matcha powder, plus more for rolling*
  • 1 tsp ground vanilla
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until well combined.
  2. Roll 'dough' into roughly 1-inch balls about the size of a tablespoon and place onto a plate.
  3. In a bowl, add about 3-4 teaspoons of matcha powder.
  4. Roll balls into powder and place back onto plate, then eat and enjoy!
  5. Store in the refrigerator for 7 days.

Such a great snack, dessert or treat when you are having a sweet craving. I would love to hear what you think! Comment below!
