Health Rating
High in antioxidants and "healthy" fats! A great snack!

Ingredients


2 cup Coconut, shredded, unsweetened
1/4 cup Coconut oil
1/2 cup Whey protein powder, vanilla
1/2 cup Dried goji berries
2 tbsp Maple syrup
1 tsp Vanilla extract, pure

Instructions


  1. In a food processor, pulse the coconut flakes for 3-5 minutes until it reaches a thick, paste-like texture.
  2. Scrape the sides of the bowl to ensure it is thoroughly combined. Add the coconut oil, protein powder, goji berries, maple syrup and vanilla to the food processor and pulse again until combined.
  3. Using a rounded tablespoon, roll the “dough” into balls, pressing the mixture firmly so the balls are well-formed. 
  4. Place the balls in an air-tight container and refrigerate.

Notes:

  • Goji Berries are high in antioxidants, they are a good source of fiber and protein
