Chocolate Macadamia Squares

These healthy eating Chocolate Macadamia Squares taste a bit like a snowball cheesecakes. But there is a surprising key ingredient – macadamias!

Soaking the nuts helps to soften them, creating a creamy texture.

Naturally sweet, macadamia nuts contain high levels of fibre, healthy fats, calcium, iron and magnesium. Perfect for when you are running around after little ones, and trying to lose weight.

You can add texture by retaining a handful of macadamias to chop and stir through the mixture.
