    Such an easy an d delicious recipe to throw together. I have high quality matcha powder so these turned out absolutely perfect (I used honey instead of coconut nectar and it was fine). Great with my morning coffee- especially since I’m always craving something sweet in the morning. Sometimes I want something different than fruit. Thanks for this recipe!!
