I had two bags of macadamia nuts left from my Hawai’ian cookies recipe and today I ventured to get rid of one.
The recipe that helped me do that is from an Australian website called and is for chocolate macadamia biscotti.
First mix 250g flour with 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, 175g sugar and half a teaspoon of baking powder.

Roast 150g roughly chopped macadamia nuts in a dry pan.

Lightly beat 3 eggs, add the rind of one orange and then add the macadamia nuts.

Make a mould in the middle of the flour and pour in the egg mix.

Mix together until you get a nice sticky dough. Put on a floured surface and make two logs.


Bake the logs in the oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 15 minutes.

Leave to cool for 5-10 minutes, then cut into slices of 5mm and put them back in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

They looked perfect when I took them out of the oven.

And they taste great with their nutty flavour and a hint of orange. The perfect bite with a nice espresso or strong tea!
