Here’s a recipe for your loved ones for Valentines Day! This one is the perfect gift for moms or dads!

The Ashwaganda is a great for energy and the adrenal glands. The maca is a great tonic and great for the libido!

  • 1 tbsp powdered Ashwaganda (organic traditions)
  • 1 tbsp powdered Maca (organic traditions)
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup gluten free oats
  • 3/4 cup soaked dates (drain excess water before adding to food processor)
  • 3 tbsp natural and organic Peanut butter or Macademia nut butter (or mix them together)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla


1. Put wet ingredients in and pulse for approximately 5 minutes until dates get mixed in (add 1 tbsp of water if needed)

2. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl then add to food processor and blend until everything is mixed well.

3. Carefully roll into 1 inch balls

4. To set, place in fridge or freezer for 15 minutes on parchment.

5. Store in airtight container–freezes well!

Happy Valentines Day!!!
