I’ve always been a traditional chocolate chip cookie girl, but since white chocolate macadamia nut cookies are one of Mitch’s faves, I’ve been on a mission to make a paleo version that’s just as delicious as the ones he loves. After testing and retesting (and retesting), I have to say, these are seriously perfection. They’re soft, buttery, salty and sweet, with just the right amount of texture from the macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips!
When it comes to paleo baking, it's pretty easy to find regular chocolate chips that are made with unrefined sources of sugar like coconut sugar, but it's not as easy to find white chocolate chips. I finally found some that are actually keto-friendly on amazon as they're sweetened with monk fruit. Obviously, you can use any white chocolate chips for the recipe, but if you're wanting them to be 100% paleo approved, these chips will do it! Btw, you can find all of my favorite healthy baking products in my Amazon storefront if you're ever looking for more suggestions!
1 egg + 1 egg yolk, room temperature
1/2 cup coconut sugar
2 tbsp coconut butter, softened* (you can also use any smooth nut butter!)
1/4 cup coconut oil, slightly softened*
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup @BobsRedMill coconut flour
1/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
1/3 cup white chocolate chips
Sprinkle of flaky sea salt
Yields 12 cookies.
*For the coconut butter and oil, you'll want it soft but not totally melted and liquidy. You can pop them in the microwave for a few seconds to soften them a bit. Coconut butter sometimes separates, so warm it up and then stir it until it's smooth before adding it to the recipe! The coconut oil should be a similar consistency to softened butter.
