matcha almond truffles en healthy

Truffles are a delicious snack when you are on the go. These matcha almond truffles are made with HealthyTokyo’s premium organic matcha for a burst of energy and vibrant green that only comes with good quality matcha. At En Healthy, we wanted to bring a touch of the mediterranean, so the flower water adds a refined freshness and the honey adds a natural sweetness to these treats.

The no bake nature of these truffles means they are not only easy to prepare but the nutrient value of the ingredients is kept intact as they are raw and not reduced through exposure to heat. Their handy size means you can easily carry them around and use them as fuel before or after you hit the gym. The almonds are a delicious source of plant based protein that is rich in healthy fats.

Never be caught hungry again with these easy to make raw, vegetarian truffles.
