Ever have those days when you鈥檙e constantly on the go? Between answering emails to attending meetings, you don鈥檛 have time for聽an hour lunch, let alone remembering the last time you went to the bathroom. But instead of surviving on iced coffee聽or munching on a wilted salad聽that you brought from home, there鈥檚 a snack that you can easily bring with you wherever聽you go. Protein balls or bliss balls聽are the latest Pinterest food trend that you鈥檝e probably heard about but had no idea聽what it was. Usually packed with nuts, dates, or seeds, these miniaturized balls are filled with everything you could need to help you push through the day. Check below for a blissfully tasty matcha recipe that鈥檚 healthy and delicious.

Instructions:

1. Place 10 pitted dates into a food processor and blend until all of them are mushed together.

2. Next, add the cashews, hazelnuts, matcha powder, and vanilla extract. Blend until everything is combined.

3. Scoop out a small amount from the food processor and roll the mixture into a ball with your hands. Place the ball on top of parchment paper.

4. To create the dark chocolate sauce, add the unsweetened cocoa and pieces of dark chocolate in a small container and place it in the microwave. Add a little milk if the chocolate is not melting correctly.

5. With a spoon, drizzle a little bit of the chocolate on top of the balls and place it in the freezer for a minimum of 15 minutes. Take it out when you want to eat them.
