Step 1: Process Nuts
Process nuts and coconut in food processor until quite fine.
Step 2: Drain Most of the Water From Goji Berries
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.
Step 3: Form Into Approximately 1 Inch Balls
Remove mixture into bowl. Form into approximately 1 inch balls by applying pressure with both fists.
Step 4: Store in Fridge for Up to 2 Weeks.
Store in fridge for up to 2 weeks. But I bet you they won't last!
Variation: For peanut butter lovers, add 1 heaping tablespoon of all natural peanut butter along with the goji berries, cocoa and protein powder.
