Matcha Almond Chia Bites

Happy #MatchaMonday!

I know it has been awhile since I posted for MatchaMonday.  I have been developing some recipes and the first few well let’s say, they flopped.  But I didn’t give up.  It’s all about trial and error, right?

This recipe I have for you today is super simple + easy.  Also, no bake and can make in a matter of minutes. Everyone else is all about the pumpkin spice but I’m all about the green!
