Spice flavoured macadamias are amazing and a great option to use instead of cashews. I love using cinnamon and coconut sugar to flavour the macadamias.

I am a big fan of using macadamias in my recipes whether it is in baked dessert recipes like these Gluten Free Fudge Brownies with Macadamias or this Banana and Macadamia Bread, or in no bake recipes like these Raw Caramel Macadamia Bliss Balls. I even have a yummy beetroot dip that is made with macadamias.

Ingredients You Need

  • Macadamias
  • Egg white
  • Coconut sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Sea salt

Ingredient Substitutions

Macadamias – if you don’t have macadamias you can definitely substitute with cashews, pecans, walnuts or almonds.

Coconut Sugar – you can use brown sugar if you don’t have coconut sugar.

How to make

You first whisk the egg white and then add the sugar, cinnamon and sea salt. Then add the macadamias and ensure that they are coated with the spice mixture.

Then you bake in the oven for 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes. Then remove from the oven and allow to cool completely and the coating to harden up.

Then enjoy!


You can store in an air-tight container for up to one month.
