Happy Thursday JP fam! Coming atcha with another new recipe today, and I’m so excited about this one! You all know that I make A LOT of chocolate desserts…chocolate chip cookies, chocolate muffins, chocolate cake, chocolate chip banana bread, you get the idea. So, I wanted to switch it up this week and make a cookie recipe without chocolate! *Enter White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies….*

These cookies have a fluffy texture, and they will make your house smell…heavenly. So, let’s get to the recipe!

Ingredients You’ll Need to Make these Cookies: 

  • All purpose gluten free flour (I like to use Krusteaz or King Arthur)
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Cinnamon
  • Flax seed meal
  • Water
  • Maple syrup
  • Coconut sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Coconut oil
  • Macadamia nuts (or walnuts)
  • White chocolate chips

Equipment You’ll Need to Make these Cookies: 

  • One mixing bowl
  • Oven
  • Microwave (to melt coconut oil)
  • Baking sheet
  • Spatula or mixing spoon

  • Make sure to flatten cookies with a spatula before putting in the oven! The cookies don’t spread much, so they will maintain the shape that they have going into the oven.
  • Save a few chocolate chips and nuts to press into the tops of the cookies after they come out of the oven.
