How to make Matcha Energy Balls

  • To prepare these delicious and healthy protein balls, we will start by gathering and measuring all the ingredients.
  • Place all ingredients; Avocado, Vegetable Oil, Coconut Flour, Maple Syrup, and Matcha powder into a food processor or a mixing bowl.

  • Pulse or mix until well-blended and the chunks of avocado are thoroughly mixed in. 

  • Now, with the help of a spoon, take 20 g of the mixture and make a sphere. Place it on a tray lined with parchment paper; Repeat the same process until you run out of dough; Place them in the fridge.

  • In the meantime, take the chocolate and place it into a pot making a double boiler to melt it. (make sure there is no water contact with the chocolate; otherwise, it will ruin it). Now, remove from the fridge the protein balls and cover as many as you want with melted chocolate. 

  • Place the matcha chocolate energy balls onto the parchment paper.
  • Sprinkle each truffle with extra matcha powder (optional) 
  • Place them back into the refrigerator until the chocolate has completely hardened.
  • If you decide to leave some of them without a chocolate cover, roll them over the shredded coconut or leave it raw. 

  • Enjoy!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • When making your matcha energy balls, I usually use a cookie scoop to keep their size consistent with one another. 
  • If you prefer for these to be healthier you can omit the chocolate. 
  • I love dark chocolate, but you can swap it out for milk chocolate as well. Whatever flavor of chocolate you use, be sure it is high quality chocolate. 
  • Use a good quality matcha powder.
  • Don’t skip refrigeration time. Shipping it can turn into a sticky mess. If you find that they start to become sticky while rolling them, place them back in the fridge for a few minutes to cool back down. 
  • You can double or triple the recipe.
