Midnight Matcha Bites

These healthy chocolate truffles are energy boosters as on-the-go breakfast or a "merienda" a snack or a light meal before dinner.



Makes 35 balls

Chocolate Energy Balls:

  • 2 bananas, very ripe & mashed
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup ground whole oats, ground to a powder in a food processor
  • 3/4 cup whole oats, left whole
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/3 cup dried coconut, unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (I used midnight black cocoa)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Coconut Matcha Coating:

  • 1/2 cup dried coconut, unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp matcha powder



  1. Place the dry Chocolate Energy Ball ingredients in the mixing bowl, then lightly toss together. Add the wet ingredients, then mix everything together thoroughly with the spoon.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the Coconut Matcha Coating ingredients together. Use your fingers to evenly distribute the matcha with the dried coconut. Set aside.
  3. Use the cookie scoop to scoop out a 2 Tbsp portion of the Chocolate Energy Ball mixture, then roll it into a smooth ball. Repeat this process to form 30 energy balls/bites. Roll and evenly coat the chocolate balls in the matcha coconut. Store the bites in a sealed box or bag in the fridge.
