I am always looking for fun and healthy snack recipes. Since I am gluten free I need to make sure, especially when traveling, that I do bring some snacks. Because I can not be sure that I will find gluten free food at my convenience. Therefore these raw, vegan Coconut Matcha Bliss Balls are the perfect snack. Not to mention that they are easy to prepare even better is that they are extremely delicious.
Probably these Coconut Matcha Bliss Balls are not a great snack for my brother since he does not warm up to coconut or cinnamon but because of it more left for me and others. Additionally these make my colleagues happy since I always stack a batch in our office fridge for the times someone gets hungry. Different from the sweet snacks that are also available in our office these Bliss Balls will satisfy you without feeling guilty. For the once who do not like Matcha or need to change once in a while you could substitute with cocoa powder instead of Matcha.
As you might have noticed I am a huge Matcha fan. Further you will find numerous recipes with Matcha on my blog like Matcha Cheesecake Bars or Raw Matcha Granola. In the event you are not familiar with the health benefits of Matcha I recommend to look at the Matcha Cheesecake Bars. Since in the recipe I have written more about the benefits of Matcha. The Coconut Matcha Bliss Balls are only sweetened with dates. Therefore you will not have your blood sugar level rise because of refined sugar. For a low carb version you could also use erythritol to sweeten.
