Maca Me Crazy No-Bake Bar

 

This is one of my favorite snack recipes for fueling fertility. No baking required and my husband loves them too. Double win! 

Note: Make sure to buy gelatinized maca - it is much easier to digest. You can typically find this near the supplements in your natural grocery store. Maca is a Peruvian root that has long been touted for its fertility benefits in both men and women.
