As the only true sandalwood species with edible nuts, the Australian sandalwood (Santalum spicatum) is a true bush food well worth celebrating. With 38% omega-9 oils, 17% protein, 17% fibre and less than 1% carbohydrates, these fudges are not only deliciously decadent, but also incredibly nutrient dense. Indeed, an excellent dessert to enjoy with mum, minus the guilt!
