Chocolate Macadamia Spread

Chocolate Macadamia Spread1

I came across this recipe on Facebook today. It sounded delicious but when I saw the amount of sugar in it I slipped into a temporary diabetic coma. As I have a compulsive baking addiction (i.e. I have to make a recipe as soon as it comes into my head for the fear of losing the idea) I whipped up this healthified Chocolate Macadamia Spread immediately.
Macadamias blend up super creamy and soft. They are much easier to blend than almonds and hazelnuts as they are a softer nut and don’t require roasting before blending. The resulting Chocolate Macadamia Spread is awesome. It’s not overly sweet and has a rich chocolate flavour.

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups raw Macadamia Nuts
  • 1/3 Cup Cocoa

  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Optional

  • This makes a smoother spread
  • 1/2 Cup Milk of choice - do not add if making cookies or donuts

Instructions

  • Place the macadamias in a blender and process until a smooth paste (this won't take too long as macadamias are a soft nut).
  • Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and well combined.
  • To make a spread (think Nutella consistancy) rather than a Nut butter add the milk and process until combined.
  • Store in an air tight container.

    • I know…and I’m so impatient I want to eat it straight away! They don’t need soaking or roasting.
      PS just made your berry chia jam and it’s delicious!

  1. I LOVE making new nut butters, and this is a flavor combo I have yet to try! Definitely going to have to give this a go when I’m out of my latest batch 🙂
