Chocolate Chip Cookie Maca Energy Bar Recipe

  • 1-2 tablespoons gelatinized black maca powder
  • 2 cups crispy cashews
  • 1 cup dates
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • about 1 tablespoon water as needed


Each recipe makes about 4 bars. The amount of maca in each bar is approximately 3/4 - 1.5 teaspoons, depending on if you use one tablespoon or two in the recipe.

Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until the mixture is finely chopped. When you think it might be ready, remove the lid and pick up a piece to roll in the palm of your hands. If it sticks together it's ready to form into bars. If it's crumbly, it either needs to blend a little more or it needs a little moisture. If it is very dry, turn the food processor on and pour a teaspoon of water through the opening in the top.Continue adding water as needed until the mixture sticks together. I've found that somewhere between 1 teaspoon and 2 tablespoons is usually enough.

When the mixture is ready, press it onto wax or parchment paper and form into bars. Wrap each bar individually and store in the freezer until needed.
