These energy bites are a great pick me up, and they are so easy to prep. I love to make a batch of these and store them in the freezer until I am ready to eat. You can make them with or without melted chocolate over the top. The healthy fats from the coconut will satisfy you, especially if you need a simple, well-balanced snack to hold you over until dinnertime.

Matcha Health Benefits

Matcha powder is made from green tea leaves and is high in antioxidants. You probably have heard of matcha before, and even had a matcha latte. But you may not know all the amazing health benefits associated with matcha.

Matcha contains caffeine and l-theanine, and this combination will give you an energy boost without the crash normally associated with coffee. The l-theanine has been shown to boost the production of alpha waves in the brain, which helps you focus and stay more alert.

Matcha green tea is a known super food. This tea has a high antioxidant rate, which helps protect the body from free radicals. Matcha is also immune boosting. There are special catechin antioxidants called EGCg, which are effective at warding off bacterial and viral infections.

Ingredients

Scale
