No-Bake Matcha Coconut Bites

We love the earthy taste of matcha, but not everyone loves sipping the grassy, super-green tea.

Pair it with sweet coconut and maple syrup, though, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t want to eat five of these.

Make them during the hottest days of summer when turning on the oven is really not an option, and eat them as a light dessert or an energizing afternoon treat.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Matcha is known for its antioxidant power and ability to provide sustained, non-jittery energy. Who doesn’t need a little more of that?  These are also vegan and gluten-free and are naturally portion-controlled since they’re bite-sized.
