Maca No Bake Cookies

No. Bake. Cookies. MACA. NO. BAKE. COOKIES. The End. But for real, is there anything better than a no bake cookie?! Yep... Maca No Bakes!! Your welcome!

I grew up eating these chewy delicious treats and loved every minute of it! Of course back then they were filled with disgusting ingredients. I have taken this childhood obsession and refreshed it for you guys making it a no guilt indulgence!

You know that feeling when something is so chocolatey that your mouth gets super dry and you can hardly chew anymore? No? Just me? Maybe thats because I ate like four of these in one sitting. Go ahead Judge Judy.. I know what you are thinking right now. Just wait until you try them!

These are the perfect dessert for "that time of the month". Not only are they so chocolatey that you will forget that you want to rip your ovaries out but the Maca actually helps balance your hormones!

Maca is naturally “high in minerals (calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc), sterols (6 found), up to 20 essential fatty acids, lipids, fiber, carbohydrates, protein, and amino acids.” Maca is often recommended to those with adrenal fatigue as it nourishes them and reduces stress hormones.

So yeah, I bet you aren't judging me anymore! 

And to top it all off they are so easy to make! I seriously made these in like 10 minutes. 

Let me recap this for you! 

Pure chocolate goodness + Hormone balancing goodness + 10 min = No more mega bitch! 

I think we all win here! 

Maca No Bake Cookies-

  • 1 Cup Sunflower Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 4 Tablespoons Honey
  • 6 Tablespoons Cacao Powder
  • 4 Tablespoons Maca Powder
  • 2 1/4 Cups Gluten Free Rolled Oats
  • Coarse Sea Salt 

In a large pot melt Sunflower Butter, Coconut Oil, and Honey. Add Cacao and Maca then mix in the Oats. Drop large scoops onto wax paper. Sprinkle w/ Sea Salt. Let cool. Eat four cookies (JK!) Transfer to an air tight container and store in the refrigerator. 

See its that easy!! Enjoy!

Strawberry Rhubarb Quinoa Breakfast Bars

My love of Rhubarb runs deep! Like REAL deep... so deep that I named my cat Rhubarb when I was like four years old! There is something about it that warms my heart! It reminds me of Summer, my Grandma and Mom, and delicious treats!

Every year my mom gives like 14,633,856 stalks of rhubarb from her garden. Rhubarb really goes crazy during the warm summer months! I can't wait to have my own garden some day. One of the first things I will plant will be rhubarb. As if we need more!? But like I said, it just warms my heart!

So needless to say I am always trying out new rhubarb recipes! This one is on the top of my list! It is chewy and moist (hate this word but how else do we really describe it?) and delish!

Strawberry Rhubarb Quinoa Breakfast Bars-

  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 cup mashed bananas (about two bananas)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seed butter
  • 2 tables spoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cups chopped strawberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped rhubarb

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9″x 9″ baking sheet with parchment paper and grease the sides with cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, quinoa, sugar, baking powder, and hemp seeds.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the banana, nut butter, eggs, lemon juice and vanilla. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients, mixing everything together until fully incorporated. The batter should be moist, but not runny. Fold in the strawberries and rhubarb. 
  4. Transfer the batter into the prepared pan and smooth with a spatula.
  5. Bake on the center rack for 25 – 35 minutes until the bars are golden brown and firm to the touch.
  6. Remove and let cool completely in the pan, then remove and slice into squares (or rectangles). Store in an airtight container for 4 – 5 days.
