We all want to be that lady…
The mom who's always called upon to bring treats for the kids' class because her treats are the best.
The gal who's famous for her tasty dishes at potlucks.
The lady who always has something to snack on for friends, her kids' friends, or unannounced visitors.
You can be that lady and not spend hours planning or prepping, slave over a hot stove, or even turn on your oven. And you can include healthy superfoods and adaptogens while you're at it.
Are you ready for my little secret?
And these spicy little bites of goodness can be whipped up in 10 minutes in your blender or food processor!
Looking For Maca?
You'll want to seek out high-quality organic maca that's as fresh as possible, and packaged to preserve nutritional quality.
At Traditional Cooking School, we've investigated maca sources, and we're really excited about The Maca Team‘s maca because it's “beyond organic”. Their Peruvian farms (with farmers paid fair wages) follow traditional agricultural methods such as giving the land rest and using natural fertilization methods. This is good for the land and great for the food that's grown on it.
Also, their maca is fresh! They process and sell small batches from only the current year's harvest, so you receive it with a few months of it being harvested. (As opposed to larger producers who move it in huge shipping containers, where your maca could be sitting around for 2 years before you actually get it to eat it.)
Finally, their raw maca isn't heated above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, therefore preserving the enzymes and nutrients. (They have a pre-cooked gelatinized maca for those with a sensitive stomach.) Then it's packaged in foil-lined double-sealed opaque bags or sealed amber jars to ensure that the maca's potency isn't reduced by light, humidity, or oxygen.
The Maca Team‘s maca is simply premium quality, and we can tell by how much better we feel when using this maca than other brands.
Maca Gingersnap No-Bake Treats
- 2-1/4 cups unsweetened, shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup raw honey
- 1 tablespoon unsulphured molasses
- 2 tablespoons maca powder
- 2 teaspoons powdered ginger
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon allspice
- 1/8 teaspoon powdered cloves
- pinch of salt
Makes 15 tablespoon-size treats.
Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender. Process on low-medium speed until the dough begins to fold in on itself. You may have to stop the food processor or blender once or twice, scrape down the sides, and process again.
Using a tablespoon-size dough scoop, drop balls of dough on to a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle with a bit of extra shredded coconut for garnish, if desired. Place the treats in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes to set. Enjoy!
Store these no-bake treats in a Ziplock bag or airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
What?! Allergy-Free, too?
Did you notice these bites have no dairy, eggs, soy, gluten, grains, nuts, or peanuts?
Even if your child attends a nut-free school, you can be the mom who sends superfoods in his lunch.
Taking treats for the class, making a delectable dessert for the potluck, always being ready to treat unannounced visitors — just became easy-peasy and safe for our friends and family members with food allergies.
You can show everyone just how amazing nourishing superfoods can taste!
