Moringa Macadamia Bites

By now you have all the turmeric uses memorized by heart and you’ve got a few takes as some recipes with adaptogens. Let’s add to your herbal repertoire with moringa!

Moringa is called the miracle tree because it has so many uses, both external and internal. It’s been used in India and other Asian countries for years, and the entire plant has been put to use: the flowers, roots, sap and all. It’s said to have over 90 nutrients, 45 antioxidants, 30 vitamins and minerals and all the amino acids needed to make a complete protein.

It looks and tastes a little like green tea, but boy, oh boy, is it bitter! I’ve worked on adding it to different recipes where it can be blended and also disguised with other tastes. This recipe is my favorite so far.

Moringa Macadamia Bites

  • 1 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1 cup dried apricots (unsweetened)
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/4 cup goji berries
  • 1/2 cup pepitas
  • 2 tablespoons moringa powder
  • pinch of fine sea salt

Prep time: 10 min. | Total time: 1h 10m

  1. This is a really basic recipe to make. Plug in your blender and toss in the macadamia nuts and apricots. Pulse until the nuts are finely chopped and apricots are like a paste. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until thoroughly mixed.
  2. You can make these into balls, or you can scoop out the mix onto parchment paper and roll into a log. You'll chill either option until set. Admittedly, the balls probably work better, but I wanted to try something different. And different it was, as I made mine into rectangles!
