Matcha Honey Truffles Recipe

Matcha Coconut Truffles Recipe by Hannah Guthman

The matcha obsession continues. This Matcha Manuka Honey Truffles recipe was created by Hannah Guthman of the beautifully minimal eponymous Instagram account (a must-follow!) and hanmadebyhg.com. I’ll let Hannah take it from here!

I’ve always been a fan of mixing green tea an honey together. One part warmth, two parts antioxidants, and perfect balance of bitter and sweet… all mixed together in a cup that fits perfectly inside your hands.

But sometimes, one cup (and even an entire pot) isn’t enough… that’s where truffles come in. They make the experience last longer – I’m convinced. Well, most of the time that is, unless I lose self-control. But hey, I’m only human. When it comes to concentration of flavor, and elevated levels of polyphenols, these little matcha truffles are a match made in heaven!
