Unbaked Maca Chocolate Chip Cookies

With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we’d like to limit the amount of time we have to slave away in the kitchen without compromising our desire to enjoy making our own homemade treats! The answer? Unbaked Maca Chocolate Chip Cookies that can be whipped up in 10 minutes or less. No oven required but you will need a food processor to make this recipe. The star superfood in this recipe is maca! Maca is a Peruvian root vegetable that’s known for its positive effects on energy levels, mood and well-being. Maca is an adaptogen, which is a type of herb that helps your body adapt to its surroundings and bring it back to homeostasis. More specifically, adaptogens support your adrenal glands,  which play an essential role in managing your hormonal response to stress and help you cope with anxiety and fatigue. Maca and other adaptogenic herbs like Asian gingseng and rhodiola rosea stimulate the body and improve mental performance while other adaptogenic herbs, such as ashwagandha, reishi and holy basil, work to calm the body. What are your favourite adaptogens? We’d love to hear from you! We hope you’ll enjoy these no-bake cookies.
