Matcha Green Tea Energy Bites

Recipe and content provided by Tara Wright, Whole Body Living

Do you love Matcha? If so, you’ll quickly fall in love with these keto matcha energy bites! On a recent vacation we took a fun food tour and stopped at a little shop that made fresh matcha drinks. I took my drink with skepticism, took a sip and was surprised at how good it tasted!

I knew I had to create an energy bite recipe with this stuff. Something I could eat when I broke my fast around 11am each day. My focus has improved. Energy is better. Plus, matcha is a really good pre-workout.
