No Bake Protein-Packed Cinnamon Chocolate Maca Energy Bites

I have been really into meal prepping lately and I decided to take it to the next level. I decided about a month ago that if I wanted any kind of treat, or was craving a certain kind of food, that I had to make it at home. This past weekend I was on my period, (sorry if that’s TMI) and I was craving some chocolate. So instead of running to the grocery store like I normally do, I decided to get creative and make these bites instead. Not only are they healthier than anything I would have probably chosen instead, but they also have the added benefit of maca powder which is a super food with awesome benefits.
What is Maca? 

 Maca is a root vegetable that is high in antioxidants and nutrients, such as vitamin C, copper and iron. It has been used medicinally for thousands of years and has been shown to enhance sexual health and libido; improve energy, mood and memory; and balance hormone levels.
