All you need for these homemade raw beauties are dates, cashews, dried goji berries and chia seeds. As I’ve already mentioned before, we are sooo lucky to have homegrown goji berries, picked from my parents-in-law lovely garden. Dried in the warm sun, these little treasures are the perfect addition to cookies, date energy bars, smoothie bowls or cereals.
