  • Roasted Macadamia Nuts – lightly salted and Roasted Macadamia Nuts. 
  • Chocolate Chips – chocolate chips that will melt when baked. If looking for sugar-free chocolate chips, Choc Zero works and tastes the best.
  • Matcha Powder – green tea leaves that have been ground into a powder. Culinary grade Matcha Powder will work for this recipe but you can also use ceremonial grade premium matcha if preferred. 

Nut Substitutions

If you’re looking to substitute macadamia nuts in your recipe, consider using Almonds, Pecans, Cashews, or Peanuts as alternatives. These nuts offer different flavors and textures that can complement your dish in unique ways.
