We love this particular recipe because it’s full of on-trend, and popular coffee alternative, matcha. Matcha is a powdered green tea that is rumoured to boost alertness while simultaneously aiding relaxation, thanks to the amino acid L-theanine found in the leaves.

“I call these little guys my cup of coffee, or my shot of espresso, because they wake me up instantly and are so much better for me than a latte, cappuccino or espresso,” says Montagu. Eat these truffles on days when you feel too sluggish to train and they’ll make you get up and go!

Make it

  1. Put 100g of ground almonds, 130g of oat flour, two tablespoons of raw honey, two tablespoons of melted coconut oil, 50g of macadamia nuts and two teaspoons of matcha powder into a mixing bowl.
  2. Mix until you have a sticky, green dough.
  3. Roll the mixture into bitesized balls.
  4. Put the remaining matcha powder in a plastic bag and, one by one, drop each ball inside the bag and shake until thoroughly coated in the powder.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
