1 1/2 cups Macadamia Nuts, raw
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1/2 – 3/4 cup unpasteurized wildflower honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pre-heat oven to 350⁰F. Toss macadamia nuts with 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil to coat, then spread evenly on parchment lined baking sheet. Roast until well coloured, about 10 – 12 minutes. Remove to cool on wire rack.
Once cool enough to handle, add roasted macadamia nuts to food processor. Pulse 3 – 4 times to break up into smaller pieces then add half of your honey and pulse again 3 – 4 times to begin to breakdown further. Taste. Add salt if needed and the rest of your honey. Now blitz, full speed, as nut butter begins to smooth, about a minute. Check texture, add remaining coconut oil if needed.
