Energy ball mania #7: Matcha meets pistachio
Nope, it’s not over yet (and there is plenty more to come – yikes!) . I love matcha and, in feeding my raw energy ball mania, I am trying to find a recipe with a fine balance between preserving the specificity of the taste and the bitterness that matcha can easily give. I think this recipe achieves it (I think better than the Energy ball mania #4), but hey, it’s for you to judge ! Also, as I am trying to vary the energy balls with new ingredients all the time, these have one that I have not yet used – pistachio nuts.
This recipe is adapted from Simplyquinoa.
So, here it goes. For some 10-12 balls, you will need:
- ¾ cup cashews
- ¼ cup raw pistachios
- 100 grams date paste
- 2 tablespoons almond butter (or another nut butter)
- 2 teaspoons matcha powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
