Meet my new favorite way to enjoy macadamia nuts.
Loaded with healthy monounsaturated 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!
Raw Macadamia Nut Fudge Squares
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
*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.
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.

Note: I’ve tried this recipe with both raw and roasted macadamia nuts–> the raw version is definitely my favorite!
