I love you so matcha! For quite a while now I love to drink some matcha tee regularly. Brewed with water or plant-based milk. Sometimes topped with milk foam.
Matcha and I – this sounds like a movie title. Several years ago it wasn’t love at first sip. Well what can I say, weeks later I found out that was due to the wrong executed matcha tea ceremony ;-). Little did I know. Then I decided to buy a bamboo whisk for whisking the matcha powder. End of the story – I started to really love matcha tea and matcha latte. And I started to try more things – cooking, baking, mixing with matcha powder. So I thought of a small healthy snack with a matcha energy boost.
So I wanted to make a bite-sized matcha snack. For an in-between snack. As a quick breakfast or as a (home-) office snack. Or if you need a study break and fill up your energy. You also can take them on an outdoor tour, bike rides or hikes. So I experimented a little bit and ended up with these super tasty and healthy matcha bliss balls. They are made with oats and coconut flour. Together with the ground almonds and some almond butter, the bliss balls are the perfect energy and protein boost. Proteins, all the proteins, guys, I heard they should be really healthy ;-).
And don’t skip the lemon juice. Matcha and some lemon juice is a match made for the tastebuds. You definitely should try a little bit of lemon juice in your matcha tea :-).

Recipe for 20 to 27 pieces (depending on the size of the balls):
30g ground almonds
60g coconut flour
40g oats (or oat flour)
½ lemon, juiced
50ml plant-based milk
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 ½ tsp matcha powder
1 tbsp almond butter
1 ½ tbsp (to 2 tbsp – to your own taste) syrup (any kind you like)
For the coating:
1 ½ tbsp coconut flour
¼ tsp matcha powder
Put the lemon juice into the glass with the plant-based milk. Don’t stir. Just let it sit.
Gently warm the coconut oil.
Blend the oats. Then mix the dry ingredients, almonds, oats, and coconut flour. Sift the matcha powder and put it into the bowl.
Then add the almond butter, syrup, coconut oil, and the milk-lemon mixture. Stir everything until it forms a kneadable dough. You could knead it shortly with your hand. Taste the mixture if you like to sweeten it more – that’s to your own taste. You also can completely skip the syrup if you like.
Now put it in the fridge for about 10 minutes.
In the meantime, you can prepare the coating. Therefore, sift the matcha powder and mix it with coconut flour.
Take the dough out of the fridge and roll it into small balls. You can make them as small or as big as you like. I use 1 to 1 ½ teaspoon of the dough for one bliss ball. After that roll the matcha bliss balls in the coating.
Keep the finished matcha energy bliss balls in the fridge!
Jetzt kommt das ganze für ca. 10 Minuten in den Kühlschrank.
