Now before we get too far ahead of ourselves, lets soak up the last days of summer, shall we?
Tomorrow, many of you may be heading back to work or school, or maybe you are already there. Regardless of what you might have going on, life can get crazy. Before you know it, a week flies by, or month even! That is why we cannot emphasize enough how much we want you to always take moments for yourself and to never feel like you are deprived or missing out. So do you have a friends birthday you want to go out and celebrate? Or maybe you just want to Netflix and Chill with a drink? Go ahead. Seriously, go for it! The more you take those moments for yourself, the easier it will be to stick to your healthy habits and take care of your body and well-being.
By now you probably already know that David and I still like to enjoy some wine at home or go out for drinks. We will never deny this. So whether it’s a cocktail or dessert, or something else entirely, enjoy it! And it just so happens that today is National Macadamia Nut Day (I mean, there is really a day for everything), so we are celebrating with a Macadamia Nut Fudge & Cookie recipe!
Both of these recipes are so quick and easy to whip together! We hope you enjoy them as much as we did. Make sure to share your pics on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, and tag us at @fairburnitoff so we can see your creations!
Mac Nut Fudge
-1 1/2 cups raw macadamia nuts
-1 1/2 tbsp. raw honey (regular works too, but raw is in a more solid form)
-1 tbsp. coconut oil
-2 tsp. vanilla extract
-1/2 tsp. sea salt
Blend Mac nuts in a food processor or high speed blender until they come together like a cookie dough consistency. This doesn’t take long – maybe a minute! Then add in all remaining ingredients and blend for another 15 seconds or so to combine everything.
Using a spatula, scrape out the Mac nut fudge onto a parchment lined baking dish or plate. Wrap and freeze for at least 30 minutes before serving.
Please note: If left out at room temperature, this fudge will melt. Best kept in the freezer, but will hold in the refrigerator too.

Have a happy & healthy Labor Day!
