Goji Berry Superfood Bites



I'm a bit of a fan of superfoods in case you hadn't noticed. So if I can find away to put a few of them into one small raw bite, then I will!

These bites combine some of my favourites including Goji Berries, Chia Seeds, plus nuts and dried strawberries.

Chia seeds are a rich source of Omega 3, fibre and protein and Goji berries are very high in antioxidants compared to other fresh berries. I put chia seeds in my daily oats, or chia puddings, and you can use goji berries in bliss balls, oats or as part of a granola or fruit and nut trail mix.

To top it all off, I used everyone's favourite superfood - Cacao powder to make my own chocolate topping for these bites. As always they're the perfect size for a treat without the guilt of a large dessert.

I hope you give them a try!
