Matcha Energy Bites Recipe

Hot matcha green tea is one of our favorite pick-me-ups—if you’re a fan, too, you’ll love these flavorful energy bites. They get their emerald color, earthy flavor, and caffeine content from matcha, natural sugars from dates, and healthy fats and protein from almonds and cashews. The combination is sure to put some pep in your step.
