  • In a mixing bowl or food processor combine almond meal, matcha maple syrup and peanut butter
    1 tablespoon Matcha powder, 1½ cups Almond meal, 4 tablespoons Maple syrup, ½ cup Peanut butter
  • Using your hands, roll into 3cm (about an inch) balls.
  • Coat balls with crushed pistachio by rolling each one around in it.
    ½ cup Crushed pistachio
  • Place on a tray, cover and refrigerate until matcha balls are firm. Keep stored in the fridge.



If using a food processor, ensure the ingredients are well combined throughout, sometimes the bottom is drier than the top as the maple syrup has blended throughout. You can help this by scraping the sides and lifting the bottom to the top in between blending.
Matcha can be swapped out with moringa powder. Check out my moringa latte as a way to use moringa.
Peanut butter can be substituted with any other nut butter, though you may need to adjust the amount of maple syrup as some are drier than peanut butter.
These matcha balls can be left naked, without coating.
Other coatings can be desiccated/shredded coconut, other crushed nuts, sesame seeds (this adds some lovely crunch), freeze-dried raspberries, matcha powder or cacao (bitter flavour).
