Homemade Macadamia Nut Butter

Macadamia Nut Butter is so easy to make, no one will probably ever read this blog post! If you are, comment and let me know 😛 To make macadamia nut butter, you need only two things. Macadamia Nuts and a high quality food processor. Macadamia Nuts are what I refer to as a “Keto Perfect Food”. They have been studied to promote weight loss because of their high monounsatturated fat content which is predominately oleic acid.
