  1. Place 1 cup of pistachios, coconut, dates, coconut oil and 1½ tablespoons of matcha powder into a blender and process until well combined.

  2. Use a spoon to scoop out a tablespoon of the combined mixture and roll in your hands to make evenly sized balls. Set the balls aside until all of the mixture has been used.  

  3. Put remaining pistachios and matcha powder into a small bowl. Roll balls into the mixture to coat, pressing pistachios into the balls slightly.

  4. Place the balls in the refrigerator to set. Matcha pistachio balls will keep in an airtight container, refrigerated, for one week.

There you have it! A no-bake snack that looks as good as it tastes!
