Best-ever Roasted Macadamia Nuts
Just look at those macros – these are the ULTIMATE fat snacks! Macadamias are my favourite nut: they are high in fat and mind-blowingly rich in flavour when roasted. If you can spend 15 minutes once or twice a week to prepare a batch of these, you will have plenty of servings of these super-tasty, satisfying fat snacks. After roasting them, I scattered over a pinch of salt and Swerve® as soon as they came out of the oven, then allowed them to cool completely before storing in a sealed container. The macros are calculated on a portion size of 35g / 1.2oz – which is ample for a quick snack to get those fat macros higher, or satisfy your desire to crunch on something delicious between meals. They smell like popcorn and taste like heaven!

Best-ever Roasted Macadamia Nuts
Deeply rich and delicious roasted macadamia nuts, coming in at 1.6g carbs per serving. High in fat, these are the ultimate fat snack.
Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F.
Remove the nuts from the packet in small handfuls and spread out on a tray lined with parchment paper. (I do this because emptying all the contents from the packet will result in the nut ‘dust’ that is present at the bottom of the packet from being added and burning.)
Place the tray into the oven for 15 minutes, shaking and rotating the tray after 8 minutes to ensure even roasting. (Work swiftly, as you do not want the oven door open too long as you will lose heat.)
Remove the tray from the oven and scatter over a pinch of salt and a pinch of Swerve while still hot. Toss to evenly coat.
Allow the nuts to cool completely before storing in a sealed container. Happy munching!
