Macadamia Snack Recipe
September 18, 2015
It’s almost school holidays, it is time to let the nuts out of the pantry! This excites me as I miss using nuts in baking across the school term. I am very happy to respect and adhere to the “no nut” policy of kinder and school. One of my children has a best friend who can not eat nuts and I would never want him (or any other child) to be adversely affected by the inclusion of a snack in my son’s lunch box.
We are fortunate to have no food allergies in our home and as a result at our house in the holidays it is time to celebrate the nut. These little macadamia squares are so so very good. They have texture from the nuts and seeds, creaminess from the macadamia meal and tahini, they are not too sweet but have the tang of the cranberries and the dense flavour of the raw cocao nibs. I tested a lot of them to see if I could come up with an accurate way to describe them to you but…. I think I need to keep eating some more! Just trust me, they are worth making.
You could add almost any seed or nut that you have on hand in the pantry to this recipe. The ones I have used are family favorite combinations. You will notice a flavor theme in these Gluten Free Macadamia Biscuits and this Raw Slice
This is my recipe for Macadamia Snack Bars. They are not chewy, not crunchy, somewhere in between.
Are school holidays impending for your children? If so I hope that you all have a great break. I don’t know about you but I really enjoy the break in the routine of the morning rush, lunch boxes and after school activities. My little boys are tired at this time of year and very ready to have some down time.
I hope that if you are about to enter the holiday period that it is wonderful for you and your family.
Tell me – do you have any school holiday food traditions that you have started with your kids?
