I think it time for a dessert post. As you might have noticed, I particularly enjoy desserts that can also cross over to the breakfast world (they are consecutive meals after all). We aren't talking cinnamon buns here, I mean wholesome sweetness: with a nice does of fiber, healthy fat and protein to boot. Something I can feel good about, day or night.
I like a little sweetness in my morning, because it goes well with coffee, and starts my day off with a smile. These delicious "bombs" are rich in anti-oxidants from the crimson goji, sweet with the land's natural sugars, and decadently nutty. If I were making them as a specific morning treat, I might even sneak some ground flax seed in there as well. Store them in the fridge, so that there is no way you won't finish them off before the delicate oils start to turn.
Pistachio Goji Bombs
1/2 cup pistachio
1/4 cup dried goji berries
1/4 cup coconut flakes, unsweetened2 tbs. raisins
1 medjool date, pitted and sliced
juice of 1/2 a clementine
a nice pinch of salt
Additional coconut flakes for garnish
In a food processor, pulse pistachios, goji and coconut until blended to the texture of sand. Add raisins, date, clementine juice and salt. Pulse to combine.
Press and form mixture into roughly 8 balls. Roll in additional coconut flakes to garnish. Store in fridge or freezer.
