7 homemade macadamia nut butter recipes to die for

The best variations on this delicious and creamy super spread.

Smooth, rich and creamy – macadamia butter is a guilt-free alternative to dairy spreads and other nut butters. It’s also easy to make and is the perfect spread for fresh bread, toast or crackers. Here are seven great macadamia nut butter recipes to try at home that are both versatile and delicious.

1. Simple Macadamia Butter

Our simple macadamia butter recipe (pictured above) is very easy to make and yet so tasty. Simply blend 500 grams of macadamias for three to six minutes in a food processor. The amount of time you spend blending the nuts will determine the smoothness of the butter – if you prefer a thicker spread, blend for three minutes; for a smoother spread, aim for the full six minutes.

2. Raspberry and macadamia butter

Free from gluten, dairy and processed sugar, raspberry macadamia nut butter is a surprisingly versatile condiment. Spread it on these simple biscuits, serve on apple or other fruit slices, add a tablespoon to porridge or breakfast bowls, spoon inside dates or enjoy it on toast. And it’s as pretty as it is delicious!

3. Wicked Chocolate and Macadamia Spread

Don’t worry, this clean-eating recipe is nowhere near as naughty as it looks. To make this chocolate and macadamia spread, just process raw macadamias to a fine paste and then add a mixture of cocoa powder and boiling water. Then add your sweetener of choice – honey, agave or sugar all work well. 

4. Savoury Macadamia Butter

Whip up this spicy macadamia butter to serve as the hero of a delicious savoury platter. When served alongside roasted pumpkin, roasted carrots, olives, feta cheese, tomatoes and fresh figs, this satisfying butter turns a platter into a delicious vegetarian feast!

5. Honey Roasted Macadamia Nut Butter

We’ll warn you now, this honey roasted macadamia nut butter is borderline addictive – you’ll be hard-pressed to stop returning to the jar for more. Roasted macadamias are combined with coconut oil, honey, cinnamon and salt and baked in the oven for fifteen minutes. Then the nut mixture is processed until smooth. Great on toast or crackers. 

6. White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Butter

This white chocolate macadamia butter is from the fantastic blog, Living Healthy with Chocolate. The recipe shines thanks to the blend of macadamias and cashews which, complement each other perfectly – the macadamias are loaded with healthy fats and the cashews bring a starchy and creamy texture to the butter.
