Chocolate-Drizzled Matcha Energy Bites

Chocolate-Drizzled Matcha Energy Bites are vegan and paleo-friendly! |


  • 2 cups finely shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons matcha tea
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons vegan and paleo-friendly chocolate chips (I like Enjoy Life brand)
  • 1/21 teaspoon coconut oil


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine shredded coconut, almond flour, maple syrup, 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil, matcha tea, and sea salt. Mix with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until ingredients, especially the coconut and tea, are evenly blended.
  2. Chill in refrigerator for up to 30 minutes and then roll into small bites.
  3. In a small dish, combine chocolate chips and teaspoon of coconut oil. Microwave for about 15 seconds at a time, stopping to stir chocolate chips and coconut oil together. Repeat until chocolate chips are melted.
  4. Drizzle melted chocolate over each energy bite. Store covered in refrigerator for 2-3 days.


For a pure paleo recipe, you could substitute unsweetened chocolate pieces for the chocolate chips.
