Healthy Homemade Macadamia Butter (super easy — made in 3 minutes!)
Yes, you can make Macadamia Butter AT HOME! It’s so, so rich and buttery and smooth and creamy, you’ll wonder why it’s not as popular as peanut butter and almond butter. And it’s super easy to make too — just a few minutes in the food processor and BAM! You’ve got yourself the silkiest, drippiest, most flavorful Macadamia Butter in all the land. It’s all natural, sugar free, low carb, gluten free, and vegan too (no hydrogenated oils or trans fats like in store-bought nut butters either)!
I think macadamia nuts are an acquired taste… some hate ’em, so love ’em. Personally, I love ’em. They’re very rich and buttery, have a slight sweetness factor, and a delicious aftertaste.
I really don’t know why I bought SO many macadamia nuts… I’m kind of an impulsive buyer at grocery stores. Bring me to a clothing store and I will seriously buy maximum one to two things (I hate clothes shopping), but bring me to a grocery store and all bets are off 😉
To prevent myself from chomping away at the whole bag of macadamias, I thought making a nut butter out of them would be a good idea. Because then you can spread it on… anything and everything.
Since I used to buy Macadamia Nut Butter at Whole Foods, I thought I’d do a little cost comparison with the brand I used to buy to my homemade version, just like how I did with my almond butter.
One 8oz jar of Artisana’s Macadamia Butter costs $13.99.
8oz of this homemade Macadamia Butter costs $6.50 (or $16.26 for the entire batch of 20oz)
That’s a huge difference! You can save $7.49 PER 8oz! That’s insane.
