These are seriously amazing. Just amazing.
They are raw, dairy free, refined sugar free, gluten free and have the most amazing flavour.
This is the kind of recipe that I keep on hand if I have guests coming over, and want to impress them with a healthy treat. People never guess that the ingredients are nourishing and good for them!
1 cup macadamias
1 cup of desicated (or flakes) coconut
1/3 cup honey (or maple syrup for vegan option)
1 tablespoon coconut nectar
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract (or the seeds of 1 vanilla bean)
1 cup of tahini
1 pinch of salt
Step 1: In a saucepan, over very low heat, melt coconut oil and honey together. The temperature needs to be kept low, so as to not denature the ingredients (or else it wouldn’t be classified as raw!)
Step 2: Once they have started to melt, add the tahini and vanilla essence, stirring for 1-2 minutes more.
Step 3: In a bowl add macadamias, salt and coconut.
Step 4: Add the tahini mix to the macadamias and stir through until all the ingredients are combined.
Step 5: In a loaf tin (or small tray) line with baking paper and pour the mix in. Gently agitating the tray so the mixture evens out and becomes flat.
Step 6: Pop into the freezer for 1 hour, until set solid. Cut up into squares and store in the fridge (for a more fudgey texture) or in the freezer (to last longer).
