I did mention in my last post that I would include a Goji Berry Slice recipe that I’m sure the whole family will enjoy! So here it is:
A sweet treat
Goji Berry Slice
(Makes 24 small pieces.)
2 cups nuts (almonds, walnuts, macadamias, etc)
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup carob powder
10 dates destoned
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup goji berries
Add either 2-3 drops peppermint essential oil or grated rind of 1 orange.
Optional: 2 tbsp chia seeds (if harder slice is desired).
Process nuts until smooth.
Add the rest of the ingredients & process.
If coconut oil is solid, place in bowl & place in another bowl of just boiled water to melt. When all is blended, stir in 1/2 cup goji berries.
Press into pie plate.
Refrigerate before cutting.
Add 2 tablespoons chia seed if harder slice desired.
This is a high energy, high protein sweet. A friend of mine recently used it for a 24 hour race. This slice also stores really well in the freezer, so make a double batch and freeze some for later.
