Loaded with healthy mono-saturated fats, B vitamins, and iron, macadamia nuts may actually help lower cholesterol and improve your metabolism.
Oh, and they taste fantastic.
Lightly sweetened with raw honey and a touch of sea salt, these fudge squares come together in minutes… and disappear almost as quickly!
makes about 8 squares
Adapted from my Almond Butter Freezer Fudge
1 cup raw macadamia nuts, or 1/2 cup macadamia nut butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon raw honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Toss the raw macadamia nuts into a high-powered blender or food processor , and grind into a nut butter consistency. Add the rest of the ingredients, and process again until smooth and creamy.
*If using store-bought macadamia nut butter, you don’t even need to use a blender! Simply mix in the honey, coconut oil, vanilla and salt, and stir until smooth.
Transfer the batter to a plate lined with parchment paper, and smooth with a spatula.
Place in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour, or until firm.
Slice off the ragged edges, then cut into bite-sized squares and serve immediately! These squares will melt quickly at room temperature, so it’s best to serve them directly from the freezer.
For best flavor, use raw macadamia nuts, rather than roasted.
: I’ve tried this recipe with both raw and roasted macadamia nuts–> the raw version is definitely my favorite!
