They are naturally sweetened with goji berries (read article on the health benefits of this super food, Goji Berries: Another Ancient Super Food Full Of Antioxidants and Low On Calories).

Pack them in lunches or take them on a road trip for a healthy snack. They are also great for satisfying your sweet craving in a healthy way or as a post workout protein snack.

I Accept

 3 tbsp goji berries (soaked in warm water for 15-20 minutes)
 ½ cup almonds
 ½ cup walnuts OR (1/4 each of walnuts and cashews)
 ¼ cup desiccated coconut
 ¼ cup cocoa
 3 tbsp protein powder (whey or vegan)
 Pinch of sea salt

1

Process nuts and coconut in food processor until quite fine.

2

Drain most of the water from goji berries into a small bowl. (Using some of the liquid helps to pull the ingredients together to form the balls). Add goji berries, cocoa and protein powder to the processed nuts. Process again until everything is blended evenly and the mixture begins to pull together. Tip: Add some of the reserved liquid from the goji berries or a tablespoon of melted coconut oil if mixture is too dry.

3

Remove mixture into bowl. Form into approximately 1 inch balls by applying pressure with both fists.

4

Variation: For peanut butter lovers, add 1 heaping tablespoon of all natural peanut butter along with the goji berries, cocoa and protein powder.

Store in fridge for up to 2 weeks. But I bet you they won't last!
