paleo choc macadamia and cranberry cups
Serves 12

Prep Time
10 min
Total Time
25 min
stuff you need
  1. ¾ cup coconut oil
  2. ½ cup raw cacao powder
  3. ½ cup nut butter (we've also used coconut butter before)
  4. 1/2 cup macadamia nuts crushed
  5. 1/2 cup dried unsweetened cranberries
  6. ¼ cup rice malt syrup or raw honey or 1 tbs. baking stevia
  7. 1 tsp. 100% vanilla extract
now what
  1. Place all ingredients (except the macadamias and cranberries) in to your blender or food processor (we use our Vitamix but a thermomix would work well too).
  2. Whiz until smooth, scraping the edges as you go.
  3. This will take around 5 minutes - the friction from the whizzing will combine/melt all the ingredients.
  4. Carefully pour the mixture onto a lined baking tray or spoon in to silicon moulds.
  5. Add crushed macadamias and dried cranberries to the top of the choccies.
  6. Place in to the freezer for 15 minutes or until set.
  7. Break the sheet of chocolate in to pieces or turn out the chocolate from the moulds.
  8. Store the chocolate in an airtight container in the fridge.

  1. Just have a question regarding this recipe, it says to put everything in a food processor & blitz then sprinkle over the macadamia & cranberries. Do we need extra nuts & cranberries for sprinkling or do we not add them to the food processor in the beginning?
    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Julie! Thanks for your comment! OOPS! Don’t put the macadamias and cranberries in to the blender at the start! Add them aftewards 🙂 we’ve no updated the recipe! Thanks for picking up on this! e + c

  3. I have your cook book, are you aware that the banana Bread recipe has no baking soda. It makes a Hugh difference to the texture, your online one has it. Does this mean that I should add it to the other cakes,

    Yes we left it out on purpose as we don’t mind the texture without it. We always try for less ingredients. Feel free to add it whenever you like. 🙂
