These pretty little things - my raw Matcha Protein Balls are the perfect mid-afternoon treat, post workout or ‘on the go’ snack. Not only does the matcha green tea powder give you a turbo boost of energy, the other ingredients give you a protein punch and energy whilst tasting good. Then to top it all off, the protein powder in this gorgeous flavour provides a high-in-quality protein, which is one of the most weight loss friendly macronutrients, and can drastically reduce appetite and cravings. They are super easy to make (although you will need a food processor), and should provide you with enough snacks to get you through a few weeks. Rolling them in the matcha, cacao or coconut is an optional extra, as they are still quite delicious without the added coating. Feel free to choose your own coating, all three, or just one or two of the coatings I have used in this recipe. If you are using matcha powder, be sure to only use a little, as too much matcha can be bitter tasting. Store the final protein balls in an airtight container in the fridge. If you are taking them out with you, don’t worry about them melting or falling apart, they will just go a little soft.
