These babies hit the spot!

Enjoy these for breakfast or a midday snack. If you’ve been following authentically well for a bit you know I like to share recipes that support the mind, body and satisfy the tastebuds.

Matcha is an adaptogen with endless benefits, proven to aid in fighting free radicals in the body and supports the body to create more of the antioxidants it needs- not to mention notorious for supporting cognitive functioning, I love bringing it into my diet when I can. I love coffee, I also need to take it easy to support my adrenals and hormones, if that sounds like you too matcha is a great alternative.

I sweetened these up with vanilla collagen and used rolled oats, flax and cashews to create a creamy fiber filled consistency to roll into balls easily. If you start to crave sugar and caffeine around 3pm or 4pm each day (like me) these are a great way to fight the crash by stabilizing your blood sugar and giving yourself a bit of a natural boost.

So many matcha products are packed with sugar, fillers and mysterious ingredients. If getting a matcha latte is a treat yourself moment, do your thang and if you’re craving the treat without the sugar or digestive repercussions, try these they are truly amaze balls-I can’t shy away from a good joke.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of rolled oats

1/2 cup of flax

1/2 cup creamy nut butter ( I used peanut butter and it slapped, just saying)

1 cup of cashews

1/4 cup of hemp seeds

1/2 cup vanilla collagen

2 tablespoons of water

1 tablespoon of melted vanilla bean ghee

1/3 cup of matcha powder, I use this brand.

optional: 1/2 cup shredded coconut

Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in in a bowl and mix manually

transfer to blender and pulse until mixture is well blended with smooth consistency

roll into balls and place on parchment paper

optional- coat a rolled ball with coconut shreds

enjoy asap or refrigerate for 1-2 hours to let them set.

store in the fridge for some grab and go action throughout the week 😉
