It’s day 2 of cookie week, and on the menu is one of my absolute favorite combinations: white chocolate macadamia cookies! Soft-bake, crispy edged cookies loaded with chunks of macadamia nuts and white chocolate.
It’s one of those cookie combinations that you either love or hate. But if are a fan of this combo, you’re going to LOVE this lightened up gluten-free version!
When I took a poll for cookie week last month, a bunch of my Instagram followers requested these cookies. I remembered I had a bag of macadamia nuts sitting in my pantry for months, so these were an easy decision.
I think it’s safe to say i’m only a fan of macadamia nuts in cookie form. Something about them mixed in with white chocolate just makes them that much better.
What you’ll need to make these White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies:
- Flours: almond flour and oat flour. I love using a super fine almond flour whenever I bake, it results in a light texture
- Coconut oil: refined coconut oil will result in a neutral taste, while virgin coconut oil will have more of a coconut flavor. I always use refined in my baked goods!
- Coconut sugar
- White chocolate: I used this stevia sweetened one
- Macadamia nuts- buy them in the bulk section for a more affordable option
- Vanilla extract
- Baking soda & salt
Mix it all together, scoop them out onto a baking sheet, and bake them to perfection!
Are there any flour substitutes?
Unfortunately I haven’t tested any flour substitutes for this recipe. If you’re allergic to almonds, you can follow my oat flour cookie recipe and substitute white chocolate and macadamia nuts for the sunflower butter cups!
Can these cookies be frozen?
Absolutely! I love freezing cookies when i’m testing a bunch in a week. They’ll stay fresh for up to 3 months. You can make 12 larger ones or 24 smaller ones, so you can freeze half the batch if you make them a little smaller.
Does the type of white chocolate matter?
I definitely prefer a white chocolate bar cut into chunks, but white chocolate chips are a great substitute.
These white chocolate macadamia cookies are going to be a new staple around here! I hope you guys love them as much as we do.
