Matcha bites with coconut and lemon.
Today we’re making pea green matcha bites for you and your good gut bacteria. But since we get that they might not seem as essential to the night snack time as, for example, our chocolate bites 2.0, we’re now going to spend a few seconds trying to convince you to try this delicious recipe.
1 First and foremost, they’re not exactly disgusting
2 But your kids will probably think they are, so you can have them all to yourself
3 They’re quick and easy to make
4 And they contain loads of antioxidants
5 And almost no sweetener
Stop with the sales pitch. Let’s do this.
(around 10 pieces)
1 cup oat flakes
1 cup coconut flakes
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 vanilla pod
juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp matcha green tea powder
Mix until combined. If the dough is too dry, add some more lemon or water (whatever you like). Scoop out small amounts of the mixture and roll into balls. Roll the balls in coconut flakes.
We got the recipe from our Australian friend Kristina. It’s not the first time that she provides us with delicious recipes. A while ago, we got this incredible anti-inflammatory turmeric dip recipe. It’s already a classic. It might not go with the matcha bites above, but you still have to write this recipe down. It’s a definite must.
Anti-inflammatory turmeric dip
2 tbsp turmeric
4 tbsp hemp or flaxseed oil
1/2 cup pistachio nuts
2 large garlic cloves
1 tsp cumin
1-2 tbsp tamari
4 cherry tomatoes
freshly ground black pepper
juice from 1 lemon
a handful parsley
some water to get the right consistency
2-3 medjool dates if you want a sweeter sauce (we usually don’t)
Mix until creamy and delicious.
