Coconut Goji Protein Balls

These coconut goji protein balls are a fun departure from the usual chocolate chip variety! They're bright from the goji and have a delicious depth of flavor from the toasted coconut. Easy to make, easy to freeze and easy to grab on the go!

Equipment

  • Lined baking sheet
  • Measuring cups and spoons or a kitchen scale
  • Mixing bowl and spatula

Ingredients

  • ½ cup Almond Flour (60g)
  • cup Oat Flour (40g)
  • 1 cup Almond Butter (220g)
  • cup Maple Syrup (100g)
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut, Divided (90g) ½ cup included in dough, other ½ cup to be set aside for rolling the finished balls as as coating
  • tbsp Dried Goji Berries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Scatter 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut on a lined baking sheet
  • Toast in the oven for 8 minutes or until golden brown (be careful not to let it burn - it toasts quickly!)
  • Add almond flour, oat flour and a pinch of salt to the mixing bowl and stir well to combine
  • Fold in almond butter, maple syrup and vanilla until well combined
  • Once the dough has come together, fold in ½ cup of the toasted coconut and goji berries
  • Place the other ½ cup of toasted coconut into a small bowl for rolling
  • Spoon out chunks of dough about the size you want your protein balls to be, and shape the dough gently with your hands into a ball
  • Roll the shaped ball through the bowl of toasted coconut for an even coating on all sides
  • Repeat shaping and rolling the protein balls until all the dough has been used
  • Enjoy right away or pop them in the fridge for an hour to firm up (I prefer them firm, but either way they're delicious!)
  • Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month, in airtight containers
