Raw Chocolate Chip Maca Blondies

These are very similar to Larabars, and we devoured them!

Have you heard of or used Maca yet? (pronounced Mahkuh) Click here to read a short article about this "superfood."

This recipe was copied from The Organic Dietician. 

  • 1 1/4 cups raw cashews
  • 1 1/4 cups raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup maca powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder or extract
  • pinch salt
  • 15 large dates, pitted
  • 1-3 tablespoons water *if needed
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  1. In a food processor add the nuts and pulse a few times to break them up.
  2. Add the maca, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt and pulse a couple more times just to combined.
  3. While the processor is running at the dates one at a time until the mixture comes together into a dough.
  4. If the dough seems to dry add water 1 tablespoon at a time until firm but not sticky.
