Matcha Energy Balls

 

Matcha (aka green tea) is full of beneficial antioxidants especially a substance called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). Its EGCG content reduces inflammation and safeguards cells from damage.

 

And these matcha energy balls are a great way to get some of these green tea benefits when you are not drinking the real beverage.

 

They are so easy to make and take with you if you are traveling or packing a lunch. And sooooo delicious!!
