Did you know? Cacao packs in more calcium than cow's milk. It's densely packed with iron, magnesium and antioxidants. Consuming cacao can help with issues such as depression, stress, blood pressure and heart health. Maca helps with improving mood, energy, endurance and even fertility. Make these to feel better every day!
1 cup raw organic almonds
15 Medjool dates, pitted (1.5 cups)
1/2 cup unsweetened cacao powder
2 Tbsp maca powder
1 - 2 tsp water
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla
1. First, place almonds into a food processor and process on high until you’ve created a fine almond meal. (Be careful not to process too long or it will turn to almond butter)
2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and process on high until everything is combined. Add a few teaspoons of water to the mixture depending on how sticky your dates are. Dough should be thick and sticky.
3. Next, scoop a heaping tablespoon of dough into your hands and roll into a ball. Roll the ball in optional shredded coconut or more cacao powder and place on a baking sheet. Repeat until dough is gone.
