For the matcha coconut energy balls

  • 40 g (½ cup) oats
  • 75 g (1 cup) unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 30 g (¼ cup) ground almonds
  • 6 dates pitted and softened in warm water for a few minutes
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ½ tsp matcha green tea powder

For the icing

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil solid - put in the fridge to set if necessary
  • 6 tbsp powdered icing sugar
  • Small drop vanilla extract


  • For the balls, whizz the porridge oats in a food processor or blender until a fine crumb is formed.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until well combined and it forms a sticky meal.
  • Roll into balls and refrigerate until ready to eat.
  • For the icing, cream the coconut oil with an electric mixer until smooth, then beat in the powdered icing sugar and vanilla. If it’s too thick add a very small amount of water and beat again. Add to a piping bag and pipe in tennis ball swirls onto the matcha coconut energy balls. Store in the fridge.
