This Keto Salted Caramel Macadamia Nut Butter has just 7 ingredients and is paleo, gluten free, sugar free and so easy to make at home!
Macadamia nuts are one of the healthiest nuts you can consume on a low carb and keto diet. It’s higher in healthy monounsaturated fats that other nuts like almonds, and walnuts and because of the higher fat content, a small amount makes you feel fuller for longer. One thing to note though is while many nuts are great for a low carb ketogenic diet, they are calorie dense. If you purchase salted nuts they can be so tasty, you can easily overeat them. No matter what kind of diet you’re on, over consuming even healthy, low carbohydrate food will cause you to gain weight. But for those of you who enjoy some nuts on a regular basis, turning these deliciously tasty, low carb macadamia nuts into nut butter is easy to do at home and less costly than purchasing already made macadamia nut butter.
The reason most macadamia nut butter is so expensive to buy is because it takes a lot longer for the macadamia tree to bear the nuts and they need to be harvested by hand which is labor intensive. If you were to purchase store bought macadamia nut butter it would cost about $20 for an 8 ounce container….
