It has been so long since I’ve been able to share a new recipe! This semester at school was by far the hardest one I have ever had and I am so relieved that it’s over and even more happy that I am back home where I can bake and make more recipes.

This matcha protein ball recipes is one I like to make as a snack during any time of the year, but I figured with all of colors it looks perfect for the holidays! Plus I absolutely love matcha- I have recently gotten really into matcha lattes, and this dessert is another perfect way to enjoy matcha!

Hope you give them a try 🙂

Ingredients

  • 2 cups pitted dates
  • 1 cup cashew butter
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup coconut shreds
  • 2 tablespoons matcha powder

Directions

  1. Soak the dates in warm water for about 20 minutes.
  2. Blend dates using a food processor until they form a paste-like consistency. If they are too thick, add a little bit of water or nut milk.
  3. Mix the rest of the ingredients with the date paste and blend them all together.
  4. Shape into balls.
  5. Roll each ball in matcha powder and top with coconut flakes. This part is optional and you can totally leave it out, but I did this because I thought it looked cute and festive, plus I love adding even more matcha 🙂

You can store these anywhere, but I think they taste better cold so I like to store mine in the refrigerator.
