I like to get my workouts done early in the morning right after I wake up. I don’t like skipping breakfast, but I don’t want to eat a big meal right before I exercise. That’s where these little snacking balls come into play. They’re easy to just grab and go, and one or two is enough to give me a little energy for my workout. I’ve had this recipe in my brain for a few months now, so when the August Recipe Redux theme was announced as Bars and Bites, I took it as a sign that it needed to be blogged.
The key ingredient is maca powder, a Peruvian superfood that has many benefits, including its energizing capabilities. It’s also really beneficial in balancing hormones and aiding fertility…so uh…be careful. In this recipe, I’m utilizing the energy aspect of the maca powder!! Almonds are also known for being an energy superfood, too, so I threw those in there as well.
I think the best part about these is how easy they are to make, and how easy they make my mornings! Just five ingredients, blended together, and made into balls. Boom. You could also press them into a baking dish and then cut them into bars if you don’t want to spend the time rolling the balls. But we all know balls are more fun…
