Description: Inspired by a recent trip to Hawaii, this mac nut butter is rich, crunchy, and sweet. Perfect for topping smoothie bowls or ice cream, adding to toast, or eating by the spoonful (guilty).
- Raw macadamia nuts (use roasted unsalted if you can’t find raw, and skip the roasting step)
- Sweetener - I used orange blossom honey*, but you can totally use maple syrup or agave with some orange or citrus zest.
Add all ingredients to high-speed blender or food processor, and blend on low. Scrape down the edges as needed. You’re looking for pieces the size of grits – not totally pulverized, but still small little nutty pieces.
If your nut butter isn’t coming together, add more sweetener. I suggest starting with less sweetener than you think, and then adding as needed.
*Note that honey is not technically vegan, as it is an animal product. Feel free to substitute if you'd prefer to avoid.
