Preparation

To Make the Goji Berries:

  1. Put the 2 tablespoons of goji berries into a coffee grinder (or food processor) and grind until they become a powdery consistency.
  2. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.

To Make the Truffles:

  1. Add all the ingredients for the truffles into a food processor and process until they are well combined and have a sticky texture.
  2. Take out about a tablespoon at a time and roll into a ball shape in the palm of your hand.

To Assemble:

  1. Take each truffle and roll into the crushed goji berry powder making sure they are completely covered.
  2. Put them in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes, or until they are a little firmer.
  3. Keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve them because they will become soft and lose their shape if left out at room temperature.
  4. Enjoy!
 

Notes

Tip #1: The first time I used crushed goji berries I made them in the food processor and they really didn’t come out uniformly crushed. This time, I used my coffee grinder that I used to ground flax seeds and it made more of a powdery consistency and made it easier to roll and stick to the truffles.
