Maca is a nutrient dense tuber crop that’s native to the high Andes of Peru, where it is known as the 'aphrodisiac of the Andes’, or by its Spanish and Quechua names of maca-maca, maino, ayak chichira and ayal willku. Cultivated for more than 2600 years, maca was often supplied to Inca warriors to increase alertness, energy and strength prior to battle, and was once considered so valuable that it was even used as method of payment.
Made from the root of the maca, organic maca powder is loaded with beneficial nutrients, including vitamins (B1, B2, C, E), minerals and trace elements (calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium, zinc, copper, selenium, manganese, tin, iodine, phosphorus, sulphur, silicon and bismuth), enzymes and essential amino acids. And organic maca powder is an extremely versatile ingredient that can be mixed directly into smoothies, shakes and protein drinks and is particularly delicious when combined with raw cacao products, to prepare raw chocolate and desserts. It also provides an extra boost to all manner of savoury dishes.
These delicious biscuits are an ideal way to use up the almond pulp that’s leftover when making homemade almond milk.
- 1/2 tsp. of organic maca powder
- 2 tbsp. of organic chia seeds
- 2 tbsp. of organic sesame seeds
- 1 cup of almond pulp
- 1 tbsp. of coconut oil
- 2 tbsp. of nutritional yeast
Place all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl, mix thoroughly and knead into a firm dough. Roll the dough into a ball and place onto a dehydrator sheet. Now flatten the dough with your hands until it is approx. 1/4 inch thick. Dehydrate at 115 degrees for around three hours and then transfer the dough to a plate. Score into the desired shape and size and then pop back into your dehydrator for a further 8 hours or until nice and crisp.
