First step is admitting you have a problem.
I am powerless around nut butter.
Second step is understanding your actions have negative consequences.
The addiction is making me poor.
Thirdly, you must take action on your dependence.
Find a new addiction that completely blows your previous addiction out of the water.
Lastly, you must help others with a similar addiction overcome it.
Share the recipe so others can make similar changes in their lives.
In all seriousness, I eat almond butter like it’s yogurt and something had to be done about it. At $10 a pop it wasn’t a sustainable addiction. Then again, macadamia nuts aren’t the cheapest nuts in the basket, but really I just wanted to switch things up.
Macadamia nuts are buttery rich little jewels of heaven. And coconut was just a logical addition, when is it not? If you have nut butter dependency issues, you may be advised to avoid making this.
At least if I squint, this one looks like yogurt.
Coconut Macadamia Nut Butter
- 1.5 cups raw, unsalted macadamia nuts
- 3/4 cup Coconut Chips (or shredded coconut)
- Pinch of salt
Place macadamia nuts into your food processor and blend until a butter is formed, about 4 minutes. Add in 1/2 cups of coconut chips and pinch of salt and continue to blend until you have a smooth nut butter. Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup of coconut chips to give it some texture. Makes over a cup of nut butter.
Nut butter addictions, we all have em. What’s yours?
Happy 4th Folks, have a safe and fun holiday today!
