These little berries are packed with nutrients. Goji berries not only are filled with vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, fiber but the list goes on. They also contain 18 amino acids and 4 grams of protein in a 1 ounce serving.
This recipe calls for rolled oats which not only provides fiber but this whole grain is also rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
