raw vegan protein bitesSometimes you just want a sweet treat but you know you’ll regret it if you indulge. Well, not if you indulge in these protein packed peanut butter, cocoa and goji treats! I loved experimenting with peanut butter and goji berries as part of Peanut Butter & Co’s fun mystery ingredient challenge and I think you’ll love the pairing too ; )  These protein bites will curb your sweet tooth with none of the guilt!

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon organic cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter & Co Peanut Butter
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
  • 5 mejdool dates
  • 1/4 cup dried raw goji berries
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Combine the first five ingredients in a medium bowl and heat at low to medium temperature in a double boiler for about a minute, just to warm up and make sure the ingredients are well incorporated. Stir until everything is well combined.

Put the almonds, cashews, macadamia nuts, and dates in your food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Be careful not to overprocess, you don’t want it to turn to nut butter.

Dump mixture out into a large bowl, add the peanut butter mixture from the small bowl, and stir well.

Stir in the chocolate chips and goji berries.

Scoop out a heaping tablespoon at a time and form into ping pong sizes balls.

Store in the freezer until ready to eat.

And one lucky winner will receive and awesome Peanut Butter & Co Mystery Ingredient Challenge pack for themselves to experiment with!

  1. I would love to win the new products because I’m a huge peanut butter fan. I like to eat it straight out of the jar sometimes.

  2. I’d love to win so I can make some yummy baked goods! I’ve never tried goji berries but I really want to!

  3. And I shared with my co-workers! We made a deal that if any of us win they have to bring in something sweet!

  4. I love Peanut Butter & Co Peanut Butters. And as much as I’ve looked, I can’t find goji berries in mainstream stores.

  5. It’s always fun to experiment with new ingredients. I’ve gotten some good recipes and ideas from the Peanut Butter & Co posts and the different blog links they have.

  6. I’d like to win this because I love nut butter spreads and would like to experiment with these in the kitchen.
