New Year, New Ingredient: Goji Berries

The theme for January’s Recipe Redux  is a new or “new to you” ingredient you’re loving right now. We recently started incorporating goji berries into our recipes and can’t get enough.

Goji berries are native to Asia and have been used in Asian cuisine for centuries. Also known by the name “wolfberries,” goji berries have a tart/sweet flavor combination and the dried form can easily be incorporated into a variety of recipes to boost their nutritional content.

These little berries are a good source of vitamins A, C, fiber, iron, zinc and other antioxidants. Surprisingly, for a berry they are an excellent source of protein. They contain all 8 essential amino acids. A single serving (1/4 cup) provides 5g protein and 3g of fiber, making it a great snack by themselves. Our kids love snacking on them right from the bag!

However, they’re even better when incorporated into these simple, no bake protein bars. This recipe was modified from a favorite version of our guest blogger, Haley, to suit our kids’ taste preferences and make them our own. They are so quick to whip up and NO BAKING, yay!

These bars make a great addition to lunches, after-school snacks and even for breakfast! You might want to make a double batch, as they disappear quickly.

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks
