At it again with the bliss balls! You guessed it, minimal ingredients, yes! 5 ingredients to be exact!
You guys LOVED my recipe for Chia Seed Bliss Balls the other week and many of you have already made and shared your photos with me, so thank you! I’m so happy they were a success for those who have already made them. I have whipped up quite a few batches of those chia bliss balls since and omg, so simple, quick and tasty! I perfect healthy daily snack for everyone!
I adjusted that recipe slightly (because why fix something if it ain’t broke) and switched the cocoa powder for Matcha, to create Matcha Bliss Balls, woohoo!
If you also follow me on Instagram, I been posting my daily matcha beverage quite regularly. I look forward to waking up to a big warm mug of Matcha in the mornings, the best!
As I enjoy my Matcha I also enjoy these beautiful Matcha bliss balls, they’re like little energy balls!
The coating on these is just some of the matcha powder and cocoa powder. I put both of the powders in a small bowl, next to each other and then rolled each ball gently between the two powders to create that awesome two toned powder coating. Just to let you know though, the powders to sort of melt into the balls and that way you don’t really get that powdery taste in your mouth, like the cinnamon challenge, lol! I’m kidding, it’s not that bad!
So as simple as these Matcha bliss balls are, I’m going to keep this post simple as I have one request, that you go can make yourself a batch! I always say that at the end of my posts don’t I? Because I want you to enjoy them as much as I do! x
- ½ cup pitted dates, soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes.
- 1 cup rolled oats, gluten free if preferred
- 2 Tbsp Matcha powder, I use Zen Wonders Culinary Matcha Powder
- ¼ cup coconut oil, room temperature, not melted
- 2 Tbsp each of matcha and cocoa powder, for rolling
- Line a baking tray with parchment paper, set aside.
- Drain soaked dates and set aside.
- Add all ingredients to a high speed food processor, except for the extra matcha and the cocoa powder, which is for rolling.
- Process for 20-30 seconds or until mixture sticks together.
- Place the extra matcha and cocoa powder on a small plate or a small bowl, do not mix them completely together, just sit them beside each other.
- Pick up approx. 1-2 tablespoons of mixture and roll into balls.
- Roll each ball in the matcha and then in the cocoa, it’s ok if the powder begin to blend, to create a two toned coating. Place on lined tray. Repeat with remaining mixture.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.
- Serve and Enjoy!
