1 pound of Roasted Macadamia Nuts
1/4 cup of Vegan White Chocolate Chips
1/2 teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
a pinch of Nutmeg
a pinch of Salt
A neutral tasting Oil
Put the macadamia nuts into your food processor. Let it run for 5-10 min til it becomes butter.
Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse a couple of times to blend. You want to leave the chips roughly chopped so don't pulse til smooth unless you prefer it creamy.
Macadamia Nuts are a very soft nut that won't take long to turn into butter.
If the butter is really dry, you can add a tablespoon of oil to make it creamy. I found that mine didn't need any.
