Say hello to these Coconut Matcha Fiber and Protein Energy Balls!
These are the perfect bite to provide some power and energy to your day!
They are filled with amazing nutrient packed and delicious ingredients like nut butter, seeds, matcha green tea powder, and coconut.
Also, this recipe is naturally vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free.
The Health Benefits of Matcha
Matcha is a wonderfully fine green powder that is made from green tea leaves. Aside from it’s color, it’s unique in the fact that it is the only tea where the leaves are consumed as part of the drink rather than being infused.
This is a huge benefit because that means that is has a higher antioxidant content than most other teas.
Antioxidants are important for our body and health because they help to prevent free radicals in our bodies. This in turn helps to protect cells and tissues from damages.
The Health Benefits of Plant Powered Protein
This is a plant protein tailored for living your best life. Delicious tasting with nothing artificial and the digestive benefits of pre and probiotics. Great before and after workouts or any time of the day.
- Digestive Enzyme Blend
- North American Yellow Peas
- Chia Seed
- Pre and Probiotics
Plant protein offers many benefits, from recovery after exercise to pre and probiotics for a healthy gut, healthy skin, and more energy.
Plant Powered Protein is cholesterol-free, low carb, high in protein, and low in sugar. With a delicious, smooth taste, this all-vegan, allergy-free protein powder is packed with Omega 3 and plant-based superfoods.
The Easy Process
This recipe from start to finish is a 10-minute prep time, and then a 20-30 minute “cooling” period before you get to enjoy the protein and fiber balls.
It’s a one bowl recipe. Meaning, toss all the ingredients in a bowl, mix them together, then you’ll chill your dough for 20-30 minutes and then take out and roll into balls. That’s it! Pretty simple!
Start with a base of your rolled oats, then add in all the other ingredients and mix until everything is coated.
It’s easy to mix these ingredients with clean hands, or if you want to be extra fancy – go ahead and whip out that food processor.
I prefer to use my clean hands. Having a little bit of water on your hands will help to prevent the dough from sticking to you.
Next, Chilling Time
Chilling the energy bites mixture for 20-30 minutes makes it much easier to roll.
You can skip right into making your balls if you’d like, just add some more water to your hands so you can skip the stickiness.
I prefer to just chill the fiber and protein ball dough and it makes rolling the balls go much faster.
Finally, Roll Time
Use your hands to roll into balls. For a perfect size, grab a tablespoon to portion them out.
This recipe will make about 10 large balls or about 20 smaller sized balls.
Enjoy these on their own, or make yourself a matcha latte to really enjoy the moment.
Each bite backs about 4.5 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein. That’ll help you feel fuller longer throughout the day.
It’s the perfect grab and go snack!
Store any leftover balls in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 1 week. If you prefer the freezer, you can store for up to a month in there.
When I'm making these, I'll make 2 batches. Freeze one and put one in the refrigerator now.
