These no bake matcha energy bites taste like a sweet treat that pack a
powerful nutritional punch for a perfect amount of energy.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I’m forever trying to beat the 3pm slump.
My body has come to expect some sort of jolt back to reality with a quick fix of caffeine.
On most days, I settle for microwaved coffee.
On other days, I make a delicious matcha latte, but lately I’ve been making matcha
energy bites and let me tell you these little bites not only help me
feel energized, they also pack a pretty powerful nutritional punch.
That, and they taste like a sweet heavenly treat!
