- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 4 pitted dates
- 1/3 cup your choice of pecans, walnuts, or hazelnuts
- 1/2" piece fresh ginger, grated

- 1 teaspoon ground turmeric

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.
