Naturally colored green, these energy balls take a few minutes to prepare and make a super healthy, easy snack on-the-go!
Aren’t these fun? I mean, all of my favorites rolled into one little ball!
Theres’ no green food coloring in these babies, I added green tea matcha powder which not only gives them their pretty green color, but also adds tons of antioxidants. Basically, antioxidants help fight off the bad things in your body as well as prevent diseases and illnesses like cancer. What’s not to like? Matcha is green tea in powder form and you know how much I love my green tea.
With the holidays coming up (GASP! NEXT WEEK!) I really need to up my healthy snack game these days. I have been eating mindlessly and not being as careful as I usually am, mainly because this time of year is just busier and more stressful. Yes, I love the holidays but man they are exhausting. With that being said, I made a double batch of these babies so I eat these instead of the rest of my kids’ grilled cheese. You get the idea.
