A friend gave me this recipe just before Christmas and it’s so yummy that I actually made some to put out in lieu of Christmas baking and they were a real hit.  They have amazing health properties (antioxidants, hormone balancing, all of the good oils, etc.) and I thought that now would be a great time to share, with many of us wanting to eat better in the New Year.  My kids even love them – the sweet and salty combo is irresistible.

Maca Coconut Rolls

4 cups shredded coconut
1/2 cup pecans
12 Medjool dates
1/4 cup agave
1 Tbsp Raw cacao powder
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp Maca Root Powder (available at health food stores)
1/2 tsp coarse ground sea salt

Process Pecans and shredded coconut first in the food processor until pretty fine.  Process remaining ingredients and then mix together with coconut mixture.  Pack into small balls ( I use the ice cream scoop for even portions – two balls per scoop)
