Mac–n-Mo’s Morselicious Treats were created out of love by Mo (that’s me) for Mac (that’s my Dad).
In February 2010, my Dad survived two massive heart attacks and underwent quadruple bypass surgery. The operation was successful, and he was discharged with very clear and strict dietary guidelines. To further complicate things, Dad is a diabetic.
Low-salt, low-sugar, low-fat, low-cholesterol, plant-based, more fiber. None of this, some of that. More of this, less of that. Thus began Mo’s jingle’s:
Cookies have eggs, sugar and butter fat. Mac-n-Mo’s have none o’ that!
Dad’s new diet proved to be a giant challenge, and he craved treats. One Saturday morning in March, he begged me to bake something sweet. My challenge was to find all-natural ingredients with no preservatives, very little salt, no added sugar, fiber, etc. Mom and I went to several grocery stores, and I searched for as many tasty “legal” ingredients as I could find.
By the third store, Mom asked, “What do you plan on making with all this?” Shrugging my shoulders, I replied, “I have no idea, but I’m going to do my best to create something magical (which became 'MORSELICIOUS') for Dad.”
After mixing many batches, we found a winner. My mom, sister, and I devoured them and most importantly, Dad relished each morsel, exclaiming, “these are magic!” Translation: MORSELICIOUS! We shared batches with our friends, and soon I was taking orders.
After countless requests from customers to create their own healthy treats at home, she began selling her grain-free Morselicious Mix, a blend of almond meal, coconut flour, unsweetened coconut, chia seeds and spices.
Mo graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and became a Board Certified Health Coach (AADP). She has since written two cookbooks featuring Mac-n-Mo's Morselicious Mix.
