Ingredients For Our Maca Bar Recipe

Method

1. Place dates, maca powder, rolled oats, cacao powder, melted coconut oil, salt and half the cashew nuts into a blender and process until you have a sticky dough. If the dough isn’t malleable enough, add a drop of water to soften it up and process again (do not add too much water, otherwise it won’t set).

2. Pour the mixture into a bowl and mix the remaining cashew nuts in by hand (so the bars have a little crunch to them).

3. Line a baking tray with cling film and press the dough into the tray. Freeze for 30 minutes, then cut into bars. Simple!
