In the spirit of semester 2, I came up with a recipe for these coconut raspberry bites that are perfect for studying.
They’re full of chia seeds (which have been linked to improved memory), goji berries (full of B vitamins which help boost your energy), and oats (which will help keep you full in between meals). Oh, and they’re super yummy and portable, so you have no excuse not to take them with you to your next library session.
Coconut Raspberry Bites
1 cup of rolled oats
2 Tbsp of goji berries
2 Tbsp of chia seeds
2 Tbsp of dessicated coconut + extra for coating
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 Tbsp of melted coconut oil
Local honey, to taste
In a small bowl, crush the raspberries using the back of a fork to break them up a bit.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, goji berries, chia seeds, coconut oil and 2 Tbsp of dessicated coconut.
Add the raspberries to the large bowl. Mix thoroughly.
Squeeze in a little bit of honey depending on how sweet you like things.
Using your (clean!) hands, roll the mixture into bite-size balls. Roll them in extra coconut until they are completely coated.
Pop the bites into the fridge for 1-2 hours, and serve them with a cup of green tea (trust me).
If you wanted to make these vegan, omit the honey for a couple of chopped dates.
