10oz.roasted, salted macadamia nuts(chopped)
2tsp.pure vanilla extract
½cupalmond butter(no sugar added)
1tsp.pure liquid stevia(Optional - or as much as you like)
In a small pot, combine the almond butter, vanilla extract, coconut oil cinnamon and stevia (if using).
Warm gently, stirring, until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy. Set aside.
In a food processor, blend the nuts and flaxseed together for 5-10 seconds, pulsing if needed. You want a course mixture with some larger chunks still in there for more of a cereal texture.
Combine the almond butter mixture with the ground nuts in a large mixing bowl, and stir to coat the nuts evenly. Better still is to knead by hand.
Spread out over a baking pan and bake at 325 F. for 15-20 minutes, stirring at regular intervals. You simply want to reduce the moisture a bit. Please note that ovens may vary, so your baking time may vary too. Also, these will still feel a bit soft while warm in the oven. So you want to go by color more than feel. They should have a nice, golden, roasted nut color to them when they are finished. That's usually about the time things start to smell really good in the kitchen!
Allow to cool completely and transfer to an air-tight container and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
