I love you soooo matcha, I just had to post this recipe for Matcha Green Tea Truffles! I love all things matcha. You may have noticed given the other matcha recipes I’ve posted before like these Matcha Breakfast Bowls or this Super Green Matcha Hemp Seed Smoothie. Matcha offers a unique flavour to lattes, smoothies, desserts and so much more. Major benefits of the superfood matcha include its antioxidants, nutrients and amino acids, including L-Theanine which provides increased energy without the side effects of other stimulants. In this recipe, you’ll process the matcha with raw cashews, tigernut flour, unsweetened shredded coconut, medjool dates, coconut nectar (or maple syrup), vanilla and pink himalayan salt. Tigernut flour is something I’ve recently been experimenting with thanks to local Toronto company, The Chufa Co., which specializes in tigernut products. If you’re new to tigernuts, also known as chufas, they are not nuts but actually little root vegetables that are packed with nutrition. Full of fibre and resistant starch (the stuff that keeps you fuller longer), tigernuts are a source of prebiotics that feed and promote the good bacteria in our gut. It’s so incredibly important to keep your gut healthy, as what’s going on in your gut will affect your mood, including anxiety, depression, and ability to focus. Tigernuts are naturally sweet, so experiment with the level of sweetness in the recipe by starting off with less and adding more to achieve your desired taste. Enjoy!
