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.

Looks fab! However, goji berries contain sugar. 3.6 g per ounce :-)

You are absolutely right. However, because of their low glycemic index, goji berries will not result in a huge spike in your blood sugar levels or lead to energy crashes or sugar cravings. In addition, they are nutrient dense and high in fibre :)) The recipe does not have any added sugar.
