    Honey Maca Cookies (Guest Blogger, Shut the Kale Up)

    Honey Maca Cookies made by Insta wife, @shutthekaleup

    Today’s post is by far one of my favorites, Jeannette from Shut the Kale Up, is here to share her newest Honey Maca Cookie recipe. Jeanette & I quickly became quite close last year over our mutual love for all things organic, filled with nut butter, topped with avocado and both having such a passion for health & wellness. Jeannette is such a talented insta-goddess, new mama and such a dear friend to me. I’ll let J take it from here but don’t forget to check out her amazeballs Instagram after you’re done reading! xx

    hi, my name is Jeannette Ogden and I run @shutthekaleup! I like all things gluten but the organic, non gmo kind. I love to eat. I love to yoga. Nice to “meet” you!

    Rachel is one of my first insta friends that truly inspired and sparked a little more fun into my baking. I love the simplicity of her recipes and the fact that they’re made with good ingredients, are a bonus! Together we’re a flipping power couple!  Sort of like Beyoncé and Jay Z! We make shit happen!

    Today on her blog I am sharing something delicious & filled with MACA! Some of you may know my love for maca.. so these had to be done..

    HONEY MACA COOKIES!Honey Maca Cookies

    Yep, they’re insanely good and are packed with fiber! I’ve been making batches of them like a mad woman and snacking on them throughout the day. They’re THAT good and did I mention maca helps with libido , reduces depression, improves circulation, regulates hormone balance and improves skin tone?! Yessss, maca is an incredible superfood!
    So go ahead, eat that cookie & smear a little PB on while you’re at it!

    Oh, yes please!! I love my maca powder! I have been making a green tea latte in the morning with a spoonful of this delicious superfood. I’m thinking I should pair it with these cookies!

    One) these cookies look amazing! but Two) I’ve heard that when you cook maca it loses it’s nutritional value…? Do you know anything about that, if it’s true/false, etc?

      No, the opposite!
      It becomes more bio available and easier for your body to digest and break down:)
