  • 1/2 Cup Raw Macadamia Nuts (ground to flour/meal)
  • 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt

  2. Add Agave Nectar, Coconut Oil and Vanilla Extract to Food Processor and mix until dough forms (approx. 20-30 seconds).
  3. Scoop into ‘Macaroon’ balls and place on your Dehydrating Trays (be sure to have the non-stick sheets placed on top of the dehydrating screens first).

* Note:  Use your VitaMix to grind Whole Cacao Nibs into Powder and your Almonds & Mac Nuts into a mealy flour before adding to the food processor.
