Good  Food Friday : 5 minute super-fertile maca slice

This didn’t last 5 minutes in my house! Whilst it isn’t fructose free, it is free from refined sugars – so as a special treat, I made this for the family this week. It is super easy and you can add in whatever you like! And of course just because it’s called my super-fertility maca slice doesn’t mean you’ll be busting babies all about the place – it does guarantee however you will be one healthy human – because fertility doesn’t necessarily equal babies.

Before we get into it – some of you have asked me just how much Maca you should be having. I say 1/2 – 1tsp daily but I advise many women to take it just for the second half of the cycle. In any case, give it a go – it’s a winner!

5 minute super-fertility slice

2 cups of medjool dates
1 cup of loving earth buckinis
1/2 cup of shredded coconut
1 tbs maca

For the topping

The darkest rawest chocolate you can find. I love the blackout variety.

In a food processor or thermomix, combine dates and coconut. Once combined, add in buckinis and only blitz a few times to mix through. The base is best rough.
Press into a small baking dish or loaf tin lined with baking paper and allow to set in the fridge.
Melt the chocolate using a double boiler until runny.
Pour over the top of the slice and allow to set.

Slice up, boil the kettle and take 5!

+ you might like to switch-a-roo the base. You could use cacao, chia seeds, cacao butter, acai berries – whatever you desire really!

    Thanks for the recipe Nat. I have tried Maca recently. Just 1/2 a teaspoon on my porridge. I find that it gives me nausea for a good 2 hours afterwards. Any suggestions as to why this might be?

    Delicious recipe! My husband and I love it!!

    I can’t actually see when you put the maca in though? I dissolved it in the melted chocolate and that seemed to work well.

    Also, I sprinkled sesame seeds on top. It looks and tastes great!

    Thanks Nat!
