Mate Energy Balls


  • 3 Medjool dates
  • 70 g of oatmeal or spelt
  • 100 g of whole almonds with skin
  • 3 tablespoons of Mate Verde Chimarrão liqueur


  • Infuse 20 g of maté in 10 cl of water at 176°F for 5 minutes, then allow the liqueur to cool.
  • Pour 70 g of oatmeal or spelt in a mixer and rapidly mix until smaller in size. Make sure not to mix into a powder.
  • Divide 35 g into 2 bowls, one half will be for creating the balls, the other for coating.
  • Coarsely grind almonds until they are smaller but not to a powder. If there are some larger pieces left, they will add more crunchiness.
  • Cut the dates in half, remove the pit and add the dates in the mixing bowl with the almonds and one of the oatmeal bowls, then mix to obtain a thick batter.
  • Add 3 tablespoons of maté liqueur to the mix, then mix rapidly.
  • Wet your hands and create balls the size of a large nut. The pastry should be a bit sticky.
  • Next, roll the pastry in the bowl of oatmeal set aside for coating.
  • Keep in ambient temperature.
