Julie's Matcha Truffle Balls
Jun 10 2016
My absolute favourite for a simple and healthy snack the whole family can enjoy. Julie Montagu is a friend, super mama, yogi and healthy foodie. Check out this recipe and try to just have one.
MATCHA IS A POWDERED GREEN TEA THAT CAN ACTUALLY RELAX YOU WHILE ALSO KEEPING YOU ALERT. THIS IS DUE TO THE AMINO ACID L-THEANINE FOUND IN THE LEAVES USED TO MAKE MATCHA.
MATCHA AND OAT TRUFFLES
These truffles are the REAL deal; an authentic, natural burst of energy.
100g ground almonds
130g oat flour (or grind your own from rolled oats)
2 tablespoons raw honey
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
50g macadamia nuts
4 teaspoons matcha (green tea) powder
Makes about 16
I call these little guys my cup of coffee or my shot of espresso because they wake me up instantly and are SO much better for me than that latte, cappuccino or espresso. Eat these amazing truffles on the days following a bad night’s sleep, or when you are falling asleep at your desk. They will jolt you back to life in a flash.
Put the ground almonds, oat flour, honey, melted coconut oil, macadamia nuts and only 2 teaspoons of the matcha powder in a mixing bowl and mix until you have a sticky, green dough. Roll the mixture into bite-sized balls.
Put the remaining matcha powder in a plastic bag and, one by one, drop each ball inside the bag and shake until thoroughly coated in matcha powder.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
