Step 1

In a bowl, toss together your macadamia nuts, coconut, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

Add buttered parchment or a silicone mat to a baking tray with a rim. Also, lightly butter a heat resistant plastic spatula. The idea is, you want these ready and standing by, when the time comes.

In a medium sized sauce pan, place your water, erythritol and tagatose. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally.

Once it begins to boil, reduce temperature to medium-low. Allow to continue boiling until it becomes a dark tan, caramel color.

Remove from the heat and add your nut mixture and butter to the pan. Mix in and stir until the butter is fully melted. This happens fast and is a little bit dangerous. That sugar is much hotter than boiling water and it likes to stick to things. BE CAREFUL!

Once the butter is melted and the nuts are fully mixed into the sugar solution, pour the mixture evenly over the surface of your prepared baking tray. Make sure it's an even layer.

Allow to cool, then break into pieces and eat!
