¼ cup (30.75g) raw pistachios, shelled

12 Medjool dates, pitted

2 teaspoons Fubuki Culinary Organic Matcha

¼ cup (20g) shredded coconut, unsweetened

1 tablespoon coconut oil

¼ cup pistachios, chopped (for rolling)

 

Method

  1. Place the ingredients (except chopped pistachios) into your food processor for one minute or until finely chopped and well combined, according to your preference.
  2. Using a cookie scoop, form balls out of the mixture and roll between your hands to create 12 evenly-sized balls.
  3. Roll the balls over the chopped pistachios, pressing the pistachios firmly into the snack balls.
  4. Place in the refrigerator or freezer for 10-15 minutes until firm. Enjoy!

Note: These snack balls can be kept in an airtight container in a cool part of your kitchen for up to 4 days.
