Notes:

The recipe above is my revised recipe. I originally posted a Matcha Green Tea White Chocolate Energy Bites recipe back in 2016, but wanted to simplify the recipe.  Just in case you wanted to see the previous recipe and/or the changes I made, I’m providing the old recipe here:

  • ½ cup Macadamia Butter (I used homemade! Cashew and almond butter also work)
  • ⅔ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Creme-Flavored Stevia Extract
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • heaping ¼ tsp Salt
  • 1¼ cups Quinoa Flakes
  • ½ cup Quick Cooking Oats
  • 3 tbs Coconut Flour
  • 1 tbs Matcha Powder
  • 1 cup Chopped White Chocolate (I used homemade!)

I originally added white chocolate to the recipe because the matcha + white chocolate combination is UNREAL.  However, when I got around to making the recipe a couple weeks ago, I realized I didn’t have any of my homemade white chocolate on hand…  so I omitted it and it was A-OK!

  1. Hahaha “well-rounded diet”! I definitely laughed out loud when I saw that! These look soooo good, I have yet to try matcha!

  2. Lol I love your puns! These bites look really yummy. I love green tea, how is the taste of matcha different? Also where can you buy it for cheap? I saw it at Sprouts but it was 14 dollars for a tiny jar. Can you blend green tea and make it yourself?

    • Matcha is much more earthy and grassy tasting compared to regular green tea. It’s also much more green in color and contains more antioxidants than green tea. It’s very expensive, but totally worth it in my opinion (kind of like how high quality chocolate is better than cheap/crappy chocolate) 😉
      I suppose you can make Green Tea Energy Bites by opening up packets of green tea and grinding the tea leaves into a powder, but the color and flavor won’t be the same. I’m sure it’ll still be tasty though! 🙂

      • Thanks Jessica! I just wish I could buy just a tiny bit to try… Maybe I’ll get some later, I love the green hue!

  3. I’ve never tried macadamia not butter! Does it have a really strong flavor or is it knid of mild like cashew butter? And I LOVED the matcha pun–it was awesome! 😀

  4. This looks honestly so delicious!! I am going to have to try this! Pinned! xox

  5. I love the idea of an energy bite!

  6. This looks soooo good! Really getting to matcha and all the things you can make with it. Found an awesome recipe for a green tea shot by Tenzo!

  7. I am a matcha lover and these are to dye for! Thanks – perfect for the No Sugar challenge, like the rest of your recipes. Actually, that No Sugar challenge is getting too good to be true with all your recipes! 🙂
