This is an amazing healthy superfood "biscuit" type cake recipe. Its a lovely biscuity base that can be used as part of other cakes or is great on its own like. Low in fat so for those out there who like to keep there fat intake low this recipe will appeal. The maca that is added is also great for supporting the endocrine system and balancing hormones. I like to add adaptogenic herbs such as maca to my recipes as they in my opinion are one of the most important classes of herbs in nature and support/normalize all body functions.
The recipe ingredients below make around 3 average sized cakes, you will obviously need to double up certain ingredients if you are wanting to make for more. The only issue with these cakes is they have to be eaten at the right temperature, i.e if you leave them out too long at room temperature they turn into a mousse type consistency which can also be nice. Personally i leave them in the freezer and when ready to eat let them sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes, this is sort of like an ice cream type cake. Very yummy:) and would satisfies even those with hardcore sweet tooth whilst being healthy treat.
About a pint depending on how much liquid you use!
This is what I just had for breakfast, it was amazing! It was meant to be a smoothie but came out with more of a cakemixey texture. More liquid would probably make it more smoothie like. Also, you could probably use less liquid and dehydrate it into muffin/cookie type things.
This was so fantabulous I just had to share!!!! I had some chocolate LARABAR’s hanging around and thought I would put them to good use …. and WOW, I was blown away!!! You could use any chocolate cookie you have laying around. I think I will definitely be making my own chocolate cookies so I can make these all the time.
