Many of you may know that matcha is one of my favourite superfoods! It is literally stone ground green tea powder, packed with anti-oxidants, fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins. Matcha helps fight inflammation and free-radicals. It can help lower cholesterol, provide an energy boost and prevent disease. In fact, one glass of matcha is equivalent to 10 glasses of green tea! Add it to marzipan, which is literally raw almond paste, and you got a super healthy, energizer snack!
· 1 cup almonds
· 2 tbsp raw honey
· 2 tsp matcha powder
· ½ tsp vanilla extract
· ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes for decoration
1. In a food processor ground the almonds. (You can also simply get almond flour from the bulk store, but it won’t be as fresh and flavourful as the one you make at home.)
2. Add in all your ingredients and mix until you get a sticky paste.
3. Form round balls in your hands and roll them in coconut flakes. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the balls to harden.
