5 Minute Maca Energy Bites

Have you tried maca root powder yet?  Maca root is a tuber, kind of like a potato.  It is very well known as a natural energy booster.  It can also help with hormonal issues such as menopause and fertility.  Maca is rich in B vitamins as well.  It can be pricey, but I promise that a little goes a long way, so the bag will last a long time.  Kind of like chia seeds.  You may even be able to buy maca powder out of the bulk bins at Whole Foods.  I love putting maca powder in my Chocolate Almond Butter Overnight Oats because it adds a malty flavor that goes well with the chocolate.   These Maca Energy Bites will not only give you a natural energy boost, but also a pretty good protein and fiber boost as well.  If you enjoy my Maca Energy Bars, you will love these!
