Matcha Protein Power Balls
Are you a matcha fan? I've recently been incorporating matcha into my life more. In my coffee, or alone in a latte or when I bake. Matcha has many benefits. Here are a few:
1. It is high in antioxidants with fighting against the effects of UV radiation, so it helps with our skin health. And has Catechin, EGCg, a specific antioxidant that fights against cancer.
2. Provides an ample amount of energy because of the caffeine present and can last for up to 6 hours!! This is because of the L-Theanine component you can find within Matcha itself.
3. Improves Cholesterol
One thing to note about Matcha, make sure you buy a quality grade, this is key into getting all the positive benefits from matcha. I'm pretty fond of Matchaeologist, due to the quality of the brand, and the information it products to help educate others on how to use matcha. This company also provides matcha that is specifically for culinary and ceremonial usages.
I recently made Matcha balls that are high in protein from the nuts without the over powering taste of matcha. Even Miles Davis wanted a bite of these Matcha balls.
