    It's true that maca can affect hormones if taken in excess, but unless you eat too much of it, that shouldn't be a problem. In general, it is a superfood that provides energy,supports mood, and helps you focus throughout the day.

    I never heard of maca powder, so I looked it up. web md warns women with hormone-sensitive cancers, such as breast, ovarian, and uterine, to avoid maca because it can act like estrogen in the body.

    However, on the up-side, the waffles look great, and boosting the protein with nut butter and protein powder is a great idea! I like to use a scoop of cottage cheese or ricotta and handful of toasted pecans added to my bob's red mill 7 grain pancake mix for tenderness, crunch and protein, but your way avoids extra dairy. Yum!

    Any nut butter will do or you can just leave it out:)

    is there a substitute for the Peanut Butter?
