How to use this recipe collection and e-book
1 – Make snacks ahead of time
Several recipes in this collection are great for making ahead of time so you have a snack on hand exactly when you need it. Try making a big batch of the macadamia and vegemite scrolls or the ‘go to’ macadamia bliss balls and slice for busy weeks when you know you’ll need a quick fix, but won’t have time to cook.
2 – Food with friends
Of course, snacks are better with friends. If you are hosting something social, the smoked and spiced macadamias are great to snack on around the BBQ as the main meal is prepared and the savoury macadamia butter is a great accompaniment to a plate of nibbles or mezze-style lunch.
3 – Nourish yourself
Our gut friendly snacks provide nourishment and deliciousness to make you feel better all round. Whether you want to try a cooling, easily digestible beverage like our macadamia, raspberry and papaya drink or need something more substantial, like the gut friendly banana bread, there are recipes here that tie snacking and self-care together.
4 – Quick fixes
Our bliss balls, three-ingredient cookies and delicious trail mix are all healthy and delicious snacks that can all be made within a moment’s notice as soon as the munchies strike you. They also keep well so that you have a quick fix on hand for whenever you feel like something sweet.
