Matcha is known for its amazing health benefits. High in antioxidants, it’s considered one of the most powerful super foods in the world.

Having just returned from Japan and enjoyed much of their beloved green tea, I wanted to make Japan-inspired energy balls.

This recipe is incredibly simple. It contains only 4 ingredients and can be whipped together in 5 minutes!

To make a small batch of 12 energy balls, you’ll need:

1 cup of dried figs

1 cup of oats

5 tsp green tea powder (matcha)

Zest of 1 lemon

Simply blend all ingredients in a food processor and roll into balls. When done, coat the energy balls in green tea powder and you’re done!
