2 cups Raw organic Oats
1 cup Goji Berries
4 Medjool Dates
1 cup Mixed Berries - Blackberries & Raspberries
Handful each:
Sunflower Seeds
Pumpkin Seeds
2 Tbsp Black Chai Seeds
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil - Melt with boiling water

Firstly start by pitting the dates, place these with nuts into a blender until the mixture is at a thick crunchy consistency. If a blender doesn't exist in your kitchen, don't threat. My mother always taught me to place your ingredients on a chopping board with cling wrap over the top and to bang away with a hammer. Works like a treat.

Next, add the sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, 1/2 chai seeds, oats & Goji berries. Mix.
Blend your mixed berries until runny - this will be a binder.  Pour into your mixture adding the cocount oil. Mix until sticky.

For coating - Blend the rest of oats, a handful of walnuts & cashews. Pour into a bowl with the remaining Chai seeds. Roll your mixture into balls (size of your desire) and cover gently in coating.
Feel free to use a variety of coatings eg. Coconut or Almond flakes.

 Happy Eating. Happy Soul.
