Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add freekeh, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for about 5 minutes. Allow to cool completely, about 1 hour.

  • Combine 2 cups cooked freekeh, peanut butter, cocoa nibs, goji berries, coconut oil, and honey in a bowl. Mix everything into a large ball, cover, and freeze for 10 minutes.

  • Roll into small bite-sized balls using moist hands. Store in the refrigerator.

Cook's Note:

You can also use almond butter instead of peanut butter and chocolate chips instead of cacao nibs, or a mixture of both.
