Hello again, Fat Heads. We just put in a tough morning doing some inshore fishing on Mobile Bay, so instead of composing another missive from my current reading list, I’m going to save that and share one of the Oldest Son’s recent creations. His Faux Carb Pizza remains a crowd pleaser, so he’s got some street cred with us LCHF types. It doesn’t get much lower carb or higher fat than macadamia nut butter! Here it is:
(Eric got his macadamia nuts from Amazon.com, but our local megamart has them in the bulk section now.)
1/2 lb of raw macadamia nuts – blend until semi smooth. Can also roast before.
Then add in order:
2 tbl melted coconut oil
1 Tbsp honey + 1 or 2 tsp
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch of salt
Pulse everything until smooth
Crunchy version: same thing, but when done, add another handful of macadamias or cashews and pulse.
If you want it even sweeter, add a few drops of liquid stevia instead of more honey as the honey will overpower the macadamia taste.
Tip: anytime you have to measure out honey or molasses (I know those aren’t low carb), spray the cup/spoon with coconut oil before. Stuff slides right out and easy to clean.
… And that’s it. The maca butter is delicious, but I think that tip is worth the price of admission just by itself!
Cheers from Dauphin Island!
