Matcha Oats Bliss Balls (5 Minutes Recipe) : Super Easy and Delectable Anytime Snack  that’s filled with goodness of Matcha + Oats (few other ingredients). Make’s a great Diabetic snack.Matcha-Oats-Bliss-Balls-5 Mins RecipeHappiness is ALWAYS having the Next SNACK Prepared ‘ that’s definitely my motto and I can talk endlessly about it …. Infact, we all are big time snackers at home. There are days when all we want to eat is snacks for breakfast/lunch/dinner, it sounds perfect for me and D, but there’s just one exception..many of our immediate family members suffer from Diabetes and cannot munch on any or everything. From a very young age, we both have seen our family members suffering from the condition, hence we are very particular about ‘what we eat‘ and have learned few fact’s about diabetes –
1. They have to ‘eat on time’ (to maintain a certain sugar level)
2. Eat in moderation (which is key to everything)
3. Regular exercise or light exercise is very important…and the list goes on.
So, for the LOVE of snacks, I’m always on a lookout for Diabetic snacks that not only tastes amazing but also helps manage hunger.  That’s how we recently came across Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shakes’ (Chocolate and Vanilla) at our local Walmart in the Diabetic Supplies Isle and brought both the flavors.  
Glucerna Smart ShakesHere are some more facts on them (however you 
should consult your doctor about what’s best for you) :

  • Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shakes (Chocolate and Vanilla) – Delicious way to help stick to your weight loss plan. Each satisfying Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shake has 15 grams of protein to help manage hunger, and CARBSTEADY®, which includes slowly digestible carbohydrates designed to help minimize blood sugar spikes.
  • Have 6 grams of sugars and 1 carb choice per bottle*
  • Provide a good source of fiber† to help support digestive tract health
  • Are an excellent source of 25 vitamins and minerals

They have definitely become a part of our daily snacking (for the diabetic family members) and for me as a quick shake to curb those 3pm cravings as they have 66% less sugars, making them a very smart choice to help manage hunger. I also made ‘ Matcha – Oats Bliss Balls (5 Minutes Recipe) ‘ to enjoy along with them, an absolutely no cook snack…. just gather the ingredients, pulse everything together, shape into round balls and enjoy! They are packed with the goodness of Matcha (specially grown n processed green tea), oats, chia seeds, cinnamon powder,  cranberry and almond butter and make a great diabetes snack because of all natural ingredients. 
Matcha-Oats-Bliss-Balls7One thing I usually follow for all my co-cook snacks, that is to make a huge batch and store them in an air-tight jar in fridge for a quick munch. These bliss balls are made from all natural ingredients and are absolutely ‘Vegan’ and ‘Glutenfree’. 

Matcha-Bliss BallsBut as many of you always ask me for a small to medium size recipe, hence the ratio used in this recipe makes 12 balls but you can easily increase all the ingredients to make many more. They paired so well with the Glucerna® Hunger Smart™ Shakes , that the first batch was gone in a day and were an immediate hit with everyone at home. —>

    I love the color the matcha gives them! I think cranberries are the perfect choice for these to give that little tart-sweetness that goes so well with matcha.

    I am so sorry, I am a first time cook. Where do you buy Matcha powder and coconut powder? I want to try your Matcha-Oats Bliss Balls (5-Minute Recipe), looks delicious and healthy at that. Thank you so much!

      Molly Kumar May 16, 2016 (4:58 pm)
      Hi Tanjum, I'm so happy you wanna try them. I'm not sure where you're located but in USA, you can buy both Matcha Powder & coconut Powder at big stores like Trader's Joe, Sprouts, Safeway or any other similar stores. Infact coconut Powder is also available in any Indian store too. Thanks :)
