Matcha protein balls

Well I finally got myself some Matcha green tea powder to experiment with. I love creating healthy snacks, so I thought I’d start with these matcha protein balls.

The first thing I did was make myself a cup of tea so that I could get an idea of the matcha flavour.

As a hot drink, I think it tastes quite similar to the Japanese and Chinese Sencha’s that are my favourite green teas. 

However, I think that where matcha powder really shines is as a baking ingredient.
