Considered to be the world's most delicious nuts, macadamias are small, crispy buttery flavored powerhouses full of good fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. Yes, these babies are very high in fats, but their fat profile balances our essential fatty acids to provide a nice mixture of both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. These fats also increase the production of protective high density lipoproteins (HDL cholesterol) while suppressing the unhealthy low density lipoproteins (LDL cholesterol).

This recipe is not "raw", because the recipe calls for Coconut nectar.
Here is why…
For a food to be considered "raw", some experts state it can not be heated up past 104°F – 120°F. Coconut nectar or syrup, is produced by slowly heating this sap between 105°F – 250°F (or more depending on the company) for a period of time between 1.5 – 3 hours to thicken it into syrup. This process also causes the sap to deepen in color.
