The Older Brother’s Oldest Son’s Maca Butter

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!

    Thanks for taking the chair, you pen a great post. We eat a lot of almond butter and apples or red bell peppers. Usually enjoy macs right out of the jar, salted or not. I have found them at Costco and Trader Joe’s raw and roasted. Only problem with bulk at my favorite produce place was that they had gone off, slightly stale. If I am forced to buy in bulk I always sample first despite the signage. The recipe is very tempting, almost decadent.

    Hi Older Brother!

    So nice to see you back again! It just so happens I was almost on the way to the grocery when I read this, so I bought macadamias and made the maca butter. You’re right! It’s delicious! The only thing I did a little different was cut the honey to a little less than two teaspoons as I seriously limit any intake of sugars in any form and I truly don’t have a sweet tooth. I upped the salt a little also. I WAS born with a “salt” tooth I think. Nice to get another good recipe from the Oldest Son- I still use his Faux Carb Pizza recipe and love it!

    Bummer, I thought this was going to be a recipe using maca, from the root of the Andean plant, which is often consumed to enhance sexual vigor. Oh well, macadamia nuts are excellent, too, especially ones from Hawaii!

      Well, The Oldest Son is just 30. I don’t expect he’ll be looking into any maca recipes in the near future.

      Cheers!
