Recipe Ingredients for Maca Maca Bars

3/4 cup White Whole Wheat Flour
2 tsp almond butter (actually Maca Powder - 2 tbsp=60kcal)
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 cup Coconut Oil, Melted
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 cup yogurt (actually 1/4 cup Coconut Kefir or Plain Soymilk + 1/4 Teaspoon White Vinegar)
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Macadamia Nuts

Recipe Directions for Maca Maca Bars

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and lightly grease an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan.

  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, maca powder, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon, and whisk to combine.

  3. Separately, whisk together the melted coconut oil, sugar, kefir, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and with a wide spatula, stir just enough to bring the two together without too many lumps. Transfer the batter into your prepared pan, smooth out the top so that it fill the loaf pan in one even layer, and sprinkle the macadamia nuts evenly across the top. You may choose to lightly chop them if you feel they?re too large, but I like the visual impact of the whole and halved mac nuts. Use your hands to lightly press the nuts into the batter.

  4. Bake for 15 ? 20 minutes, until golden brown around the edges, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely in the pan before slicing.

  5. Makes about 6 ? 8 Bars
