I put this recipe together as part of Loving Earth's Maca Powder Appreciation Week. This is my favourite way to take Maca, other than in a spiced hot chocolate of course. Some people find the taste of Maca a little earthy, but when you combine it with coconut milk and dates, it turns into a sweet caramel malty taste sensation. Try it out - I think you'll agree!

These deliciously dark and mysterious tarts are just a little bit special, with a secret ingredient. Modestly sweet, with an earthy, nutty flavour- a lovely change from the usual fruity/chocolate affairs - give them a go, and fall in love!
These light and fruity muffins use one of my favourite fruits – feijoas! If you’re a feijoa fan you’ll love these (and if not, come to NZ to try them). Best of all, they have no added sugar – just the natural sweetness of feijoas, coconut, dates, and vanilla.
