If you’re looking for an easy and delicious snack recipe that’ll also energize you, then you’ve come to the right blog post! Today, I’m sharing my Super Seed Matcha Energy Balls recipe, and the matcha powder in these little snacks are sure to give you that extra boost of energy you need to get through the day!
If you’re not familiar with Matcha, it’s basically ground up green tea leaves. So, instead of brewing the green tea leaves, you’re actually consuming the entire leaf, which means it’s much more potent.
In fact, Matcha is a powerful antioxidant, it’s rich in chlorophyll, and it helps to boost your metabolism. And, because Matcha is naturally caffeinated, it can also help to boost your energy levels and mental clarity.
These Super Seed Matcha Energy Balls are a delicious go-to snack that’s packed with healthy fats and nutrients to keep you going in between meals!
