- 15mins + chilling
- 1 tsp – 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 cup (160g) pitted dates
- 1 cup (120g) roasted macadamias
- ½ cup (45g) desiccated coconut plus extra for dusting
- 1 tsp Queen Organic Vanilla Bean Paste
- 2 tbsp raw cacao
- 1 tbsp maca powder
Grease a loaf tin with the coconut oil and line it with baking paper so the paper extends over the long sides.
Place all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until it comes together. It will seem very soft at this stage. You may need to stop it and scrape down the sides a few times.
Press the mixture into the tin and flatten the top then sprinkle over the extra coconut and press it in a little.
Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Cut into triangles and serve or store in the fridge.

Maca powder comes from the maca root – a root that belongs to the radish family. It has an earthy, nutty flavour and is said to increase energy and boost immunity.
