  • 1/4 cup/ 70g Pitted Dates
  • 1/4 cup/ 50g Raw Almonds sub any nut/seed of your choosing
  • 1/4 cup/ 30g Oats
  • 1/2 tsp Matcha Powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

To decorate:

  • Edible eyes
  • 1 tbsp Raw Almonds sliced in halves


  • Add the dates, oats, almonds, matcha powder, and vanilla extract to a high-speed blender or food processor.
  • Pulse to combine. The mixture should form a sticky dough. If it is not coming together, add a little water 1 tsp at a time and continue to pulse until a dough forms. If the dough is too wet, add a few more oats and pulse.
  • Take tablespoonfuls of the dough and roll between your hands to form balls. To make mini monsters, use teaspoonfuls of dough.
  • Decorate the energy balls by adding edible eyes and the sliced almonds for the mouths. Enjoy!


  • The energy balls will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 month.
