Who knew that maca was the new hot, must-have ingredient? Not I, that’s for sure! Though the $50 iHerb shopping spree was plenty popular, I wasn’t sure if there was more interest in winning, or just getting that cookie recipe! Never fear, I wouldn’t make you lovely people choose between the two, so let’s get the bookkeeping out of the way first, shall we?
The winner is commenter #90, who is Gail, of Cooking at the Pacific Outpost! Congrats, Gail, you’ll be hearing from the kind folks at iHerb shortly. Hope you enjoy that SuperBerry and SuperFruit Blend you were eyeing!
And for everyone else, don’t forget, you can still get $5 off your first order by using the discount code “NAH833“.
Losing may never be so sweet though; These long awaited maca bars will surely soothe the pains of missing out on the contest. One of those flavors that is hard to describe, and even harder to replicate with alternate ingredients, it’s just something you’ll have to try for yourself. Trust me, it’s worth any hardships to find real maca powder, if only to bake these cookies!
- 3/4 Cup White Whole Wheat Flour
- 2 Tablespoons Maca Powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil, Melted
- 1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
- 1/4 Plain Non-Dairy Milk
- 1/4 Teaspoon White Vinegar
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 Cup Unsalted Macadamia Nuts
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and lightly grease an 8 x 4 inch loaf pan.
- In a large bowl, sift together the flour, maca powder, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon, and whisk to combine.
- Separately, whisk together the melted coconut oil, sugar, non-dairy milk, vinegar, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and with a wide spatula, stir just enough to bring the two together without too many lumps.
- Transfer the batter into your prepared pan, smooth out the top so that it fill the loaf pan in one even layer, and sprinkle the macadamia nuts evenly across the top. You may choose to lightly chop them if you feel they’re too large, but I like the visual impact of the whole and halved mac nuts. Use your hands to lightly press the nuts into the batter.
- Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, until golden brown around the edges, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely in the pan before slicing.
