You will need:

  • 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter (you can substitute your favorite nut or seed butter)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 4 pitted dates
  • 1/3 cup your choice of pecans, walnuts, or hazelnuts
  • 1/2" piece fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 teaspoons Matcha powder, divided
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • optional garnishes: finely chopped nuts, shredded coconut, chopped dried fruit, chia seeds, cocoa powder

In your food processor, combine all ingredients EXCEPT the nuts, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon of the Matcha. Blend until smooth.

Add in the nuts and pulse for 10 seconds. 

Form the mixture into 12 roughly equal balls by rolling between your palms. Arrange on a dish.

In a separate small bowl, blend the remaining Matcha and cinnamon. Lightly dust the Matcha-cinnamon mixture over the balls. Garnish and freeze for 30 minutes, or refrigerate for several hours to allow them to set.
