About The Ingredients
Avocado – This should be ripe (but not brown) and easy to mash. Coconut Oil – It’s best to use virgin coconut oil so that it will help solidify the energy balls. But you can really use any oil you’d prefer to use and it will still work just fine.
Grated coconut – This is unsweetened grated coconut. Also known as desiccated coconut. Maple Syrup – Use the real stuff. Flavoring won’t work here.
Matcha powder – This is simply a powder you can find at almost any health food store. Whole foods carries it, but you can also purchase it on Amazon. (See below). Dark Chocolate – I used sugar-free chocolate chips from Whole Foods. Lily’s and Enjoy Life are also great brands.
How Do You Make Matcha Energy Balls?
Gather and measure all the ingredients.
Place all the ingredients into a mixing bowl.
Knead by hand until the avocado has been thoroughly distributed through the “dough”.
Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, take uniform pieces of dough and roll them into balls that are approximately the size of a golf ball. Place them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Repeat the same process until you run out of dough; Place them in the fridge.
While they chill, melt the chocolate. The easiest way is in a microwave in 30-second intervals. Stir between each interval until everything is fully melted. Remove the energy balls from the fridge and dip as many as you like into the chocolate. Place the matcha chocolate energy balls onto the parchment paper. Sprinkle each truffle with extra matcha powder (optional)
Ensure to place them back into the refrigerator until the chocolate has completely hardened.
You can also roll these in grated coconut, or just leave them plain. Serve and enjoy!
