Peanut Butter Power Bites: Recipe

In the book “Brain Food: The Surprising Science of Eating for Cognitive Power” (Avery), Lisa Mosconi, the associate director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, presents to us a healthy interpretation of the no-bake cookie.

“So good and so good for you. Every time I make these power bites, I am begged for the recipe.

“They are a hit with both kids and adults, and always disappear quickly.

“For a real superfood treat, add 1 teaspoon spirulina powder and 1 teaspoon maca root powder to the mix. Spirulina will make the mixture turn green, but the essential amino acids it provides for your brain are worth a little color!”
