  • 1 cup oats any type, any size
  • 1 cup seeds one type of a combo—I used a combo of flax seeds, quinoa seeds, sunflower seeds, chia and sesame seeds
  • 1 cup nuts one type or a combo— I used walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts and almonds
  • 2 bananas
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter or peanut butter or coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Matcha Green Tea Powder
  • 2/3 cup cranberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a parchment lined baking sheet, place the oats, seeds and nuts. Toast them for 8-inch mins. Leave the oven on.
  3. Remove the tray from the oven and place the oat mixture in a large bowl and add the cranberries into that bowl too.
  4. In the meantime, in a food processor, place the bananas, almond butter, vanilla, flax powder and green tea powder until smooth.

  5. Add the Matcha mixture into the oat mixture and toss it very well.

For making energy balls:

  1. If making no-bake energy balls, use this mixture as it is, take golf size pieces and roll them between your hands into balls. Refrigerate the energy balls for at least 1 hour to firm up.

For making granola bars:

  1. If you’re making the energy bars, take the oat mixture and press it into a parchment lined 8 inch baking pan. Press the oat mixture well with your hands to make sure it’s intact. Bake the pan for 25-35 minutes until the mixture is golden on top and crispy on the edges.
  2. Remove the pan from the oven and let the mixture cool down before slicing. Slice into bars, squares, triangles or any shape you like. Enjoy.
  3. Store the bars wrapped in a cling film and then in a sealed container for at least 2 weeks, and up to a month in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

  • Add in your favorite nuts and dried fruits, and you’ve got yourself a power boosting, satisfying sweet treat that you can feel GOOD about!
  • When using Matcha, always remember that a little bit goes a long way, so 1-2 teaspoons will be the range you’re looking at depending on the recipe.
  • As a nut butter, you can use Peanut butter, any seed butter, or coconut oil—all work beautifully!
