  • 1.5 cups macadamia nuts (you can sub with your favorites if you're not worried about low carb)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (or sub almond butter for Paleo)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips
  • sea salt, to taste (for garnish)


  1. Line a square pan with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Place nuts in a food processor, and pulse, starting and stopping until nuts are mealy with some chunks left. Remove from food processor and place in a medium mixing bowl.

  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl, except for the chocolate chips and sea salt. Stir with a large spoon to combine. Dump mixture into parchment lined pan, and spread out with the back of a spoon. 

  4. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler on the stove or in a microwave safe dish in the microwave. If you use the microwave, heat in 30 second increments, stirring between to prevent chocolate from burning. 

  5. Pour melted chocolate over the nut mixture and spread out evenly with the back of a spoon. Place in the freezer to set for at least an hour. Remove and slice into 12 small squares. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
