BITES OF HEALTHY FOOD; ‘ Maca Energy Bars ‘


When you start reading all about eating healthy, there are certain foods that come up.  Kale, chia seeds, goji berries and maca are just some of them.

Maca Energy Bars

Maca root is a tuber, kind of like a potato.  It is very well known as a natural energy booster.

It can also help with hormonal issues such as menopause and fertility.

Maca is rich in B vitamins as well.  So I decided to make an energy bar with it.

This energy bar is not only vegan, but grain free and gluten free too.

Here is a Recipe l Found to Try:

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Ingredients

Instructions:

  • In a food processor, grind the almonds into a course consistency.
  • Add them to a bowl with the sunflower seeds, maca powder, flax meal, pepitas, chia seeds and salt.
  • In a saucepan, combine the maple syrup, almond butter and coconut oil.
  • Mix until all are well combined.
  • Add it to the bowl with the dried ingredients.
  • Tear a sheet of parchment slightly bigger than an 8X8 pan.
  • Line an 8X8 pan with the paper.
  • Spread in the mixture and pack down tight .
  • Place in the fridge to set.  About 1 hour.

You should get 8 bars out of a batch according to the recipe ingredients.

Store them in the fridge or even freeze them for longer storage.

Enjoy!
