Matcha Energy Balls Recipe

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.
