Green-Tea Energy Balls // Pre-Workout Recipe!


Hello lovelies! So you all know already that I love Matcha and so whenever the opportunity comes up to use this vibrant lil' green powder in a recipe I can't help myself, hence this foodie post: GREEN-TEA ENERGY BALLS. 
You might remember my Chocolate Chia Balls post from a while ago where I showed you my favourite recipe for some healthy bite-size treats but while that's more of a dessert kind of one, these Green Tea Energy Balls are specifically for that small burst of healthy energy you need right before a Workout.
Paired with raw almonds, dates and chia seeds, the matcha in this gives it both it's amazing green-tea flavour and so many antioxidants that are great for your body too. I got to the gym 4 times a week currently, and one of these right before is the BEST pre-workout snack I've tried so far and since you're making it yourself you know exactly what's going into it (no weird protein shakes!) I hope you find this recipe useful and let me know in the comments what flavour energy balls I should make next? I'm thinking Christmas ones ooo....




You Will Need: (Makes roughly 10 Balls)




  • 1/2 Cup of Pure Oats   
  • 1/4 Cup of  Almonds and Pine Nuts
  • 1/4 Cup of Raw Honey
  • 1 Tbsp of Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 Cup of Dates (pitted)
  • 1 Tbsp of Matcha Powder
  • 1/4 Cup of Shredded Coconut


  • Let’s Do this:

    Step one: Add the Oats, Nuts, Dates, and all dry ingredients into a Food Processor and blend until fully mixed.
    Step two: Add in the the 1/4 Cup of Honey and blend until it makes a sticky sort of mixture. You may need to add more honey depending on the mix.

    Step three Now (get ya hands stuck in!) and roll the mix evenly into lots of small bite-size balls. Then roll these balls in the shredded coconut until the outside is coated and pop into the fridge in a small tupperware ready to eat.

    1. These looks so good. I have been just buying myself protein bars before working out but these look like such a great alternative. I have sent this link to my email so I can come back and refer to it when I want to make them! Great post!

    15. That is why selling advertising campaigns marketing so that you could invaluable explore previous advertisment. Quite simply to jot down stronger set that fit this description. Immortalitea

    17. These look so good and very delicious! I'm hopefully going to start going to the gym and working out more regularly so I think these would be perfect to have for a snack. Rather than having my usueral pop tarts which are definitely not healthy or good after a workout!
