Want a delicious, healthy fat filled, METABOLISM BOOSTING snack that tastes like a brownie??! Look no further! Coconut oil has a positive impact on your metabolism because of the MCT (medium chain triglycerides) in them that are so quickly converted in to energy. You can certainly use MCT oil alone, but coconut oil, grass fed butter and full fat cheeses all also contain MCTs. Great news, right (as long as your body tolerates dairy)?! I use coconut butter (also labeled as coconut manna) in addition to coconut oil because it has the coconut meat still in it which adds fiber and flavor. You can purchase this or make it simply by blending unsweetened coconut in your food processor until it is smooth! In addition, Cinnamon is naturally anti-inflammatory, an antioxidant and helps stabilize blood sugar. By helping stabilize your body in these three areas, you are also aiding your metabolism by bringing overall balance to your body. Your body will be in protect mode if you have chronic inflammation, low immune system and dysregulated blood sugar & insulin. (I like adding cinnamon essential oil to my water along with some of my other favorite metabolic boosting oils!) Macadamia nuts (aside from being delicious!) offer a good dose of vitamin B1 and magnesium, and just one serving nets 58 percent of what you need in manganese and 23 percent of the recommended daily value of thiamin (according to Dr. Mercola). They are also packed with healthy fats which make them one of the best choices for a low carb, high fat diet. Lastly, cocoa powder is full of minerals that are so important for our electrolyte balance! https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19930003

Yields12 Servings
 1.50 cups Macadamia Nuts
 2 tbsp Coconut Butter
 2 tbsp Coconut Oil
 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
 ¼ cup Erythritol {or sweetener of choice. Just adjust amount as needed}
 ¼ cup Cocoa Powder
 1 tsp Cinnamon
1

Pulse/puree macadamia nuts in blender or food processor until broken down into tiny pieces. Add coconut oil, coconut butter and vanilla. Continue to blend until a "butter" starts to form.

2

Add cocoa powder, cinnamon and sweetener. Continue to blend until smooth.

3

Either line a mini muffin pan with liners OR use a silicone baking mold (this is what I did and it worked perfectly). Spoon the batter into the muffin pan or silicone mold until it is distributed evenly.

4

Freeze until solid (should only take about 20 minutes).

I let mine sit out for just a minute to softe slightly before eating it. These are SO yummy!
