Prep time 15min (4hours soak)/15min cook time
Ingredients: (Makes 24)
1 ½ cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 tsp. cinnamon, heaping
½ tsp. mixed spice
¼ tsp. baking soda
½ cup (100g) finely chopped almonds
1 cup Nu3 Goji Berries, soaked for 4 hours
2 cups (250g) dates
½ cup coconut oil, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 organic egg
Pre prep: rinse and soak your goji berries for 4 hours, until they become soft and squishy.
1) Preheat you oven 175°C / 350°F. In a food processor, finely pulse dates. Add the melted coconut oil, vanilla, egg and pulse until you have a sticky paste. In a mixing bowl, combine rolled oats, coconut flakes, baking soda, cinnamon, mix spice, and chopped almonds. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the food processor, finally folding in the soaked Goji Berries. Taste the batter, if you prefer a sweeter biscuit, add a tablespoon of honey at a time.
2) On a lined baking sheet, spoon mixture into golf ball size balls. Press flat with the back of the spoon. Repeat until you run out of batter. Bake for 15 minutes, then allow to cool.
