Vegan Matcha Protein Truffles

Paleo, Vegan and Sugar Free

I’m all about the superfoods, and these bad boys are packed with them! I’m convinced the more I eat, I get closer and closer to becoming a super hero, right?!

These babies check off all the boxes— they are paleo, vegan, gluten free and sugar-free, which makes them the perfect afternoon pick-me-up that will cure that chocolate craving or even act as a pre-workout energy boost. I’ve perfected the recipe, so the matcha does not taste “too green” or like dirt.

Here’s a quick rundown on our key players here:

Matcha. Matcha is the queen bee of superfoods: 100 percent pure organic green tea leaves ground into powder. It contains up to 137 times the antioxidants of regular green tea, and is a great metabolic and energy boost.

Coconut oil. Ahhh, hello weight-loss-friendly fat. Yes, fat can be your friend! It contains a unique combination of fatty acids with powerful positive effects on metabolism. It’s also a great energy source, too.

Lacuma powder. Not only is this guy high in beta-carotene and iron, it’s also a sugar-free natural sweetener that has crazy delicious caramel vibes.
