Maca is a great supplement for extra energy and vigor and these choc maca energy bars throw in a hit of raw cacao too! Not to mention the goodness of omega threes found in the seeds. Overall these bars pack a nutritional and energy punch and are tasty too! At first taste they reminded me a little of the trusty chocolate crackles from birthday parties as kids! They are very quick and easy to make and store well in the freezer. Give them a go!
