Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 130C (fan forced).
  2. Grind the almonds and macadamias into a fine meal in a food processor. Do not process for too long or you will end up with butter.
  3. Mix all of the dry ingredients together.
  4. Stir in the maple syrup and butter.
  5. Roll into small balls then flatten onto baking trays.
  6. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until they are nicely browned.
  7. Cool cookies on the tray. They will become crisp and crunchy as they cool down.
  8. Keep for up to a week in an air-tight container.
Optional Ideas:
  1. Try different nuts, such as pistachios, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, or pine nuts.
  2. Replace the maple syrup with raw honey or rice syrup.
  3. For an extra indulgence drizzle the cooled biscuits with raw chocolate, made by gently melting together 1 tbsp of maple syrup, 4 tbsp of coconut oil, 4 tbsp of raw cacao powder, 1 tsp vanilla and a pinch of salt.
