And you want something that will leave you feeling energized, not in a sugar-crash stupor. You know there’s nothing in the vending machine that ticks all these boxes. What’s a hungry healthy snacker to do?
Enter the “fat bomb.” These trendy little treats are all over Insta, and for good reason. They’re a simple and super-delicious and satisfying way to kill the afternoon munchies and add a bit more healthy fat to your day.
For this fast, easy recipe, Clean Plates Collective member Mark Sisson, author of The Keto Reset Diet, combined fat-burning, disease-fighting superfood matcha powder with nutrient-rich tahini, so you get a whole lot of energizing bang for your buck. And did we mention that their fudge-like texture and touch of sweetness make them feel like a treat? Fire up that food processor and get ready to dig in.

Green Tea Tahini Bites
1/2 cup (120 ml) tahini
1/2 cup (120 g) butter
1/2 teaspoon (2 ml) vanilla extract
5 drops vanilla stevia, or to taste
1 teaspoon (5 ml) matcha green tea powder
Blend all the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Pour into a silicone mini muffin mold or silicone ice cube tray. (Alternatively, line a small rectangular loaf pan with parchment paper and pour in the entire mixture.)
Freeze until set. Pop the fudge out of the mold or cut the larger piece into bite-size squares. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for best texture.
