Maca Chocolate Energy Bars
Made with maca powder, oats and mixed nuts, these bars nourish your body from inside out, help it cope with stress and energize it.
In the food processor add drained dates, coconut oil, almond butter, maca and cacao powder, and process to obtain a creamy puree.
Add the mixed nuts, desiccated coconut, rolled oats and salt and mix to incorporate.
Shape little bars using your hands, place them on a tray lined with parchment paper, cover with plastic foil and freeze for at least two hours.
Defrost for 10 minutes at room temperature before serving.
I don't take maca as a supplement, but I keep maca powder stocked in my kitchen to add to smoothies, breakfast bowls or this hormone-balancing hot chocolate. Consuming it in the form of organic, raw powder rather than as a standardized pill is the best way to get maximum healing benefits.
