I LOVE goji berries - they are sweet and delicious. I am not fan of raisins so was beyond excited when goji berries made appearance in the western world. They are my favourite addition to on-the-go snack mix along with nuts, dark chocolate and bran flakes.
Goji berries are a great source of energy which makes them a great addition to your breakfast bowls. They are high in protein, containing all 8 essential amino acids, and a fair amount of complex carbohydrates. Their bright red colour is a sign of beta-carotene, which also stimulates the liver.
Makes around 16 balls
Preparation time: 10 min
Resting time: 30 minutes in the fridge
2 tbs raw cacao powder
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbs coconut oil
2 cups of oats
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup of coffee or cereal based coffee
1/4 cup of chopped goji berries
1/2 cup of hazelnuts
1 Tbsp chia seed
2 Tbsp cocoa nibs
1 vanilla bean
LET's DO THIS:
In a blender roughly ‘blend’ the oats and goji to break them down into smaller pieces - avoid blending the oats into a flour.
Then transfer the oat mix into a mixing bowl. Place the nuts into a blender and blend until completely broken down, if you prefer chunks blend less, then transfer to the oat mixture, and add chia and cocoa powder.
Melt the coconut oil add the maple syrup and place into a blender with the bananas and the vanilla, until smooth and well combined. Pour the wet mixture into the prepared bowl. Mix all ingredients together, and slowly start adding the coffee until a nice dough begins to form. If too thick, add little plant based milk.
If you have a very sweet tooth add more maple syrup. Refrigerate for 10 minutes, then roll into small balls and refrigerate for 1 hour. Enjoy the balls of joy as they are!.
Refrigerate for up to one week or freeze. Enjoy!
