Righto, folks! We're here to kick things up a notch – let's talk matcha! Now, don't just whisk it into your morning cuppa and call it a day. We decided to take a little detour through our trusty book of matcha — our green bible, if you will, to bring you something truly spectacular!

Drum roll, please… Introducing our irresistible Matcha Protein Balls! Perfect for a jolly quick nosh before you flex those muscles or even for that mid-morning nibble at your desk (we see you!). Dazzle yourself with our simple yet snazzy recipe for these flavour-packed green wonders.

Makes 12 balls:

  • 75g (2½oz) cashews
  • 40g (1½oz) desiccated coconut
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tsp teapigs matcha powder, plus a little extra extra for rolling
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp runny honey or date syrup
  • 3–4 tbsp water
  • 30g (1oz) finely chopped pistachio nuts
  • 40g of vegan protein powder (to support wellbeing)
  1. In a food processor or blender, blitz the cashews, coconut, chia seeds, matcha powder, coconut flour and protein powder.

  2. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan over a low heat and add to the blended mixture with the honey and the water. Blitz briefly until you have a dough. Add a little more water if it’s too dry – you want it to stick together.

  3. Divide the mixture into 12 equal-sized portions and, using your hands, roll each one into a ball.

  4. Roll the balls in the pistachios and some matcha powder, then chill in the fridge until cool and firm. You can store them in an airtight container.
