*To make macadamia nut butter, process raw macadamia nuts (approx. 1 – 2 cups) in a food processor to make a buttery paste.
**To make coconut solids, place a can of full fat coconut milk in fridge overnight. Scoop out coconut milk solids that have risen to the top (keep liquid for another use such as smoothies/ curries).
You can make this into brownies with a choc mint icing by using a mint chocolate bar.
