Two-three Matcha Green Tea Energy Bites 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:
What You’ll Need:
- 1 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
- 4 Tbsp almond flour
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup, more or less to taste*
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 Tbsp matcha green tea (the color will vary depending on the matcha brand you use)
*I personally prefer less maple syrup, but you may prefer these Matcha Green Tea Energy Bites with more sweetness, so feel free to add a little more. 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)!
Put all the ingredients in your food processor…

You can sprinkle coconut flakes on your Matcha Green Tea Energy Bites as a topping if you prefer.
