This vegan matcha superfood bites was born when I bought a couple of bags of matcha powder and wanted to create a healthy snack. I really wanted to incorporate at least a couple of “superfoods” to offer my friends and coworkers a healthier snack choice to try. It’s always a great idea sneaking in some nutritious ingredients into a snack so you can enjoy the benefits of them.

I used a mini donut pan for this recipe just because it’s so damn cute and I wanted an excuse to use it. These might not be for everyone. They have a earthy, green tea flavor from the matcha so it depends if you like that. You can still be adventurous and try to recipe to decide for yourself. After reading all of the health benefits of these little bites you might change your mind.

I used organic Japanese matcha powder I found on Amazon but you can use whichever matcha powder you have.

Here are a few health benefits included in the ingredients:

  • Boosting metabolism and burning calories

Instructions
  1. Add all ingredients to a bowl of food processor fitted with a metal blade and process. This finished texture should be a bit crumbly but stick together between your fingers. If needed add a tablespoon or two more of almond milk or coconut flour depending on the consistency.
  2. I used a mini donut pan and pressed the batter into it and then let chill in the freezer for a few hours before serving. If you don't have a pan you can just scoop and roll the batter into small balls. Sprinkle with additional matcha powder, if desired.
