Matcha Walnut Date Bliss Balls for Energy & Mood

matcha bliss balls

These Matcha Walnut Date Bliss Balls are exactly what we needed to add some bite-sized energy to our day. A healthy, nutrient-dense snack that tastes so decadent! We started with walnuts for their high omega-3 fatty acid content, phytonutrients and healthy fats that support your brain health. We chose dates for their fibre and matcha for its energy and antioxidants. We joined forces with Vive Wellness and Health Coach Kelly to create these indulgent snack bites. Try them out with the super simple recipes below.

Matcha Activate Balls

Ingredients:

1 cup walnuts
1 cup medjool dates
2 tbsp Activate Matcha* (or other matcha powder)
4 tbsp raw cacao powder
2 tbsp shredded coconut
Pinch of sea salt
Additional Activate Matcha for rolling

*Activate Matcha is a blend of matcha, maca, siberian ginseng, green tea pollen, spirulina, vanilla. You could substitute pure matcha or a similar mix of plant powders.

This version of the bliss balls doesn't have the heat of the cayenne and has the lighter flavours of the Activate Matcha. Activate Matcha also has more matcha in it than Matcha Bliss. For either recipe you can add more pure matcha if you want a greater energy boost!

Method:

  1. Pit your dates and set aside.
  2. Add the walnuts to a food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. Add the dates, Matcha Activate, cacao powder, shredded coconut and sea salt and blend until incorporated.
  4. Roll the dough into bite-sized balls. 
  5. Place the balls onto a parchment lined baking sheet and place in the freezer for a couple hours. 
  6. Roll the balls in Activate Matcha immediately before serving.
    You can roll them instead right after forming the balls and before the freezer, but the matcha will be absorbed into the ball. If you choose to do that you can simply dust the balls with Activate prior to serving.

Enjoy these straight from the freezer for a chewier consistency or move to the fridge.
