  1. YUM! Thank you so much for this easy to make, few ingredient, recipe (my favorite kind). My niece just brought back a bag of this and I got “hooked”. Great to know I can make it in my own kitchen.

  2. Wow! I loved to eat macadamia nuts especially when I am at travel I’ve always bring this.

  3. Are the nuts not baked? Do they make your fingers oily when eating?

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hi Kelly – the nuts are pre roasted when bought, so already baked. Oil is used in the recipe, but not so oily that it will leave you with greasy fingers like after eating fried chicken.
