These bite sized delights are the perfect combination of sweet and salty rolled into one little ball. Each piece delivers a good dose of healthy fats, a bit of protein and the medicinal benefits of maca powder. I think they would make a nice snack to pack into a kids lunch (or your own!) or serve as an after school snack to boost energy and nourish the brain. These (raw vegan!) coconut maca balls may also serve useful post-workout as maca can facilitate the healing of muscles and reinvigorate the body’s systems after a stressful period.

Whip these up in no time! They take only about 10 minutes to make, including prep time to clean up. Coconut Maca Macaroons are a nice gluten-free dessert or snack to serve.

I know these coconut macaroons are also very good with 100% cacao melted and then drizzled over them!

Keeping it Ketogenic

If you do not have goals that involve specific ketogenic macronutrient ratios feel free to substitute 2 tablespoons of a local, raw honey in place of the no calorie sweeteners.
