You will need:

You can find most of the ingredients listed below on Mint Basil Market.



  • 3 Cups Shredded Coconut

Part 1

  1. In the food processor, add the cups of shredded coconut, the creamed coconut, the matcha and the coconut oil.
  2. While the processor is running, add the maple syrup.
  3. Scrape down the sides and start turning your mix into balls. Line them on a tray with parchment paper. Set them in the fridge or the freezer. If you’re in a hurry, let them set in the freezer while you work on the chocolate sauce.

  2. Dip and roll the matcha balls in the chocolate ganache.

You can double dip the balls for a thicker chocolate coating.

  2. Add a goji berry for a red-nosed reindeer.
  3. Finally, break a spelt pretzel in two and make the reindeer horns.
