No-Bake Cranberry Coconut Mood-Boosting Bites

November 14th, 2018 | no comments

Don’t let their size fool you; these little bites are rich in antioxidant, mood-boosting ingredients like maca root powder and cacao nibs. Other Earthfoods worth mentioning in this recipe: unsweetened coconut flakes and ground flaxseeds!

Held together with “peanut only” crunchy peanut butter (the oily/drippy kind works best) and a drizzle of pure maple syrup, No-Bake Cranberry Coconut Mood-Boosting Bites are the perfect little treat for when you want something sweet after dinner (which I always do!) and are craving a little nutrition too.

Having that usual cranky family member over for Thanksgiving dinner? Adaptogenic maca root powder is known for boosting both energy and mood! So consider whipping up a batch and offering one to Mr./Mrs. Grumpy Pants for dessert (a glass of wine wouldn’t hurt either…for both you and the grumpster! 🙂 ).
