I miss peanut butter…
I do enjoy peanut butter every once in a while, but I try to avoid it for the most part. Peanuts aren’t the most nutritious food. They are high in omega 6 fats (as are most nuts and seeds) and high in phytic acid.
Macadamia nuts are very low in omega 6 fats as well as phytic acid. When I do eat nuts, I eat Macadamia nuts and Hazelnuts.
I’ve been making this homemade macadamia nut butter for a few years. My three-year old daughter loves it! It really tastes wonderful on sandwiches and as a dip with fruit.
- 1 pound macadamia nuts*
- 6 tablespoons coconut oil
- pinch of salt
- 4-6 tablespoons raw honey (optional)
