The Perfect Caffeine Boost
I came up with this recipe recently because I just love matcha green tea and wanted a simple snack using this amazing ingredient.
I still enjoy my matcha green tea latte every morning because it’s a perfect gentle pick-me-up without the jittery side effects of coffee.
A Healthy Energy Snack
Two-three green tea energy balls are a perfect mid-afternoon snack when I’m starting to drag. Or after dinner. (Just don’t eat them too late or you might be lying awake in bed later! At least that’s how I am and I’m pretty sensitive to anything with caffeine.)

How To Make Matcha Green Tea Energy Bites
The entire recipe is at the bottom of this post in a printable recipe card. First, I have a list of the ingredients you need along with some tips that I learned when I made them.
- shredded coconut, unsweetened
- almond flour
- maple syrup, more or less to taste
- coconut oil
- matcha green tea (the color will vary depending on the matcha brand you use)
Notes About This Recipe:
I personally prefer less maple syrup, but you may prefer these green tea energy bites with more sweetness, so feel free to add a little more.
Also, decrease the amount of coconut oil, as needed. If you use 3 tbsp maple syrup, try 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, etc.
This recipe is incredibly simple to make. All you need is a food processor (I love my inexpensive Hamilton Beach food processor)!

Blend it all together until it is really well combined. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl to make sur eevrything is fully incorparated together.
After the ingresnits are mixed together, use your hands or a spoon to roll 1-inch bite-sized balls.
Then, you’re ready to enjoy your matcha green tea energy bites! That’s honestly how simple it is.
How To Store Matcha Energy Bites
To keep them from becoming soggy, I suggest storing them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They should last about a week in the fridge.
I do not recommend freezing them. This will make them solid balls of ice. Then, when they thaw, they will have a slightly different texture. It’s best to just enjoy them as soon as you make them.
If you know you are not going to be able to finish them all, I recommend only making half of this recipe!
Optional Green Tea Snack Toppings
You can sprinkle coconut flakes on your matcha green tea energy bites as a topping if you want to added a subtable sweet/nutty flavor.
You can also dust them with a little bit of cinnamon for a little kick. Since they are made with maple syrup, you won’t want to add too much sugar to them.
How To Make These No-Bake Energy Bites Keto-Friendly
If you are on a low-carb diet, it’s really simple to make these compliant. All you have to do is use a liquid sugar-free sweetener instead of maple syrup. If you want to use shredded coconut, make sure it is unsweetened.
These are a wonderful low-carb snack too!Print
