CHOCOLATE MACA PANCAKES

 

 

CHOCOLATE MACA PANCAKES

Today on the menu we have chocolate-maca pancakes. This is a perfect recipe for breakfast, but let’s be honest. I would have this anytime of the day. It’s easy to make and the taste is so delicious. I decided to add maca just to give it an extra health boost.

JUMP TO RECIPE

Maca powder is a product that comes from the process of grinding a root called maca which is related to the radish. Maca has a long list of health benefits but I will narrow it down to 9.

  1. It increases your energy, endurance and stamina.
  2. Maca increases  muscular strength.
  3. It increases libido
  4. It helps the body to regulate hormonal processes (including menstrual issues)
  5. It’s an excellent memory enhancer.
  6. It increases  blood circulation
  7. It balances your mood
  8. It promotes skin health
  9. It has tons of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients

The powder can easily be incorporated into foods and recipes that use fruits too. For instance, maca powder smoothies are immensely popular nowadays. A maca smoothie I often make is banana-blueberry-mace smoothie which contains almond milk, frozen bananas, blueberries and around 1 tablespoon of maca powder.

Anyways Queens. This is definitely a recipe you should try. Enjoy it

It seems that there are more pros than cons.  The only one I could think about was the time it takes to make, but you can make a big batch that can last for up to two weeks so problem solved. There might be the slightest (I repeat: slightest) possibility that I’m pretty biased, that’s why I could only think of one ‘disadvantage’. I mean the home made version is so delicious that you’ll never want store-bought again. If you make this recipe you will understand why.

Give it a try and enjoy!
