Matcha Peanut Butter Energy Balls

I’m a member of the Peanut Butter & Co Yum Squad. Recently, they started a #mysteryingredient challenge this month in which they give us a mystery ingredient to work into a recipe that also includes their peanut butter products. Additionally, March is National Peanut Butter Month. Furthermore, what better way to showcase peanut butter than with a fun challenge! My mystery ingredient was Matcha which is a finely milled or fine powder green tea. I have never had or made a recipe with green tea before so this was a challenge!
