I love making bliss balls to keep as a satiating afternoon snack – ensuring stable blood sugar levels and maintained energy all the way until dinner. These matcha bliss balls are the perfect 4pm indulgence with antioxidant-filled matcha and healthy fats that’ll make you glow from the inside out!


Makes: 8 bliss balls

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 heaped tbsp desiccated coconut, plus extra for rolling
  • 1-2 tsp matcha powder, I love Matcha Maiden
  • 5 dates, pitted and roughly chopped
  • 3-4 tbsp filtered water



  1. Add almond meal, coconut oil, desiccated coconut, matcha powder and dates to a food processor.
  2. Process, gradually adding the filtered water, to make the mixture sticky but not wet, until well combined.
  3. Roll heaped tablespoons of mixture into balls. Sprinkle extra desiccated coconut on a large plate and roll each ball in coconut until covered. Sprinkle with a little extra matcha.
  4. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes to set. Refrigerate for up to 7 days in an airtight container.
