I made some pretty legit snacks last night (vouched for by my friends) and thought I'd share the recipe with you all. Because I can't have nuts, these are nut-free, gluten-free, raw and vegan!
Here are a few tidbits on a few of the key ingredients:
Maca root - This natural supplement is great for balancing hormones and promoting libido. It is also amazing for people with chronic fatigue since it'll provide energy without the caffeine!
Cinnamon - Not only is cinnamon delicious, it's also great for heart health and balancing blood sugar levels. Its got anti-inflammatory properties and is high in antioxidants.
Sunflower butter - This is my go-to spread because I can't have nuts. Its loaded with healthy fats, magnesium, zinc, vitamin E and more!
