Earthfood Energy Bars
A raw, no-bake bar full of good healthy fat and protein! The extra special ingredient is maca powder. Maca, a root vegetable native to Peru, is considered an adaptogen, which means that it helps the body adapt to stress. If you can’t find maca powder or would rather leave it out, just replace it with two extra tablespoons of ground flaxseed! Earthfood Energy Bars store well in the freezer…so go ahead and double the batch! 3 Earthfoods per serving: ♥♥♥
