Nutty Maca Bars
1 Hour 10 Minutes
These bars are packed with a ton of healthy ingredients, but taste like they're a dessert. All of the nuts and seeds provide energizing healthy fats and fiber to help keep you feeling satiated, and the MRM Organic Maca Superfood Powder provides a unique, rich, nutty, and slightly sweet flavor boasting its own set of health benefits: Adaptogens, Fiber, Amino Acids, Vitamins, and Minerals. The best part about these... the bars don't harden completely in the freezer so you can eat the straight away, no waiting to thaw necessary! While the ingredient list looks daunting, these bars are super easy to make and store for up to 3 weeks in your freezer. They provide you with tons of energy and are great for hiking or a quick pick me up with your favorite cup of coffee or tea. Enjoy these babies anytime, any where.

-chefs note-

If you don’t have all of the ingredients, it’s ok- feel free to substitute different nuts and seeds! The main nuts you need are the Walnuts and Hazelnuts.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Soak dates if you need to.
  3. Place walnuts and hazelnuts on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and place in a food processor.
  4. Add sunflower seeds, brazil nuts, and salt to the food processor. Grind until you get the consistency of bread crumbs.
  5. Remove the pits from the dates and add to the nut mixture in the food processor along with the mac powder, coconut oil, and the tahini. Process until combined and smooth as possible.
  6. Pour processed mixture into a large mixing bowl and add all remaining ingredients. Use your hand to knead and combine everything until the mixture is sticky and holds together.
  7. Line an 8x8in baking pan with parchment paper- be sure to have the parchment paper extend up the sides. Press the mixture into the pan until you get a packed, even layer.
  8. Place in the freezer for 1-2 hours to set.
  9. Lift the mixture out with the parchment paper and set on a cutting board.
  10. Cut the mixture into the bars with a large, sharp knife. You can store the bars in the freezer for about 3 weeks.
