What to do

  • 1. In a food processor add all the ingredients except the goji berries and whizz until combined (the nuts should still be a little chunky).

  • 2. Add the goji berries and whizz until combined and the mixture is sticky, but still don’t let the nuts be ground up completely.

  • 3. Take small handfuls of the mixture and rolls into balls.

  • 4. Roll the balls in desiccated coconut and place in the freezer to set for 30 minutes.

  • These balls can then be stored in the freezer, fridge or pantry depending on how firm you like them.
