Energy ball mania #4: Matcha matches cocoa (and almonds)
I know, it may be too much. But I can’t help it. Not only do I like energy balls, but when I make them, I want to have a choice, so I make different varieties at a time. So, here is number two of the weekend.
For about 10, you will need:
- 110 grams date paste or pitted dates
- 75 grams almonds
- 35 grams raw cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon oat milk (or any sugar-free cereal milk)
- 1 tablespoon matcha powder (or only half if you want the matcha taste more subtle) + a few pinches to sprinkle
It’s the same process as before. Mix all the ingredients together in a food processor until it blends well (if you are using date paste, cut it into small pieces before blending). Shape 10 tennis-table-size balls. Roll them in the sesame seeds for decoration and store them in the fridge for some 15 minutes. Sprinkle with matcha before serving.
P.S. If you are really into chocolate and not that much into matcha, these are really really really great without the matcha. Just drop it entirely from the recipe! And, if you want extra fudginess, use almond powder instead of almonds! They will almost melt in your mouth. Mmmmm…
