    Best Paleo white chocolate macadamia nut cookies!

    Seriously.

    You ask why? They are a great combination of macadamia nuts, white chocolate chips, and almond butter! And even though they are flourless, they are crispy on the outside, soft, chewy & gooey on the inside, and taste amazing! I mix almond meal, almond butter, 1 egg, maple syrup, coconut oil and baking soda to create these delicious cookies.

    These Paleo white chocolate macadamia nut cookies also don’t have any added refined sugar. Sugar can have harmful effects on metabolism and contribute to all sorts of diseases.  It can cause insulin resistance, diabetes, it raises your cholesterol and can give you a heart disease. It also influences your hormones, your brain, it can make you feel hungrier and the liver converts excess sugar into fat. That’s why I try to stay away from refined sugar. I try to satisfy my sweet tooth with naturally sweetened desserts, fruits, and honey/maple syrup sweetened treats. I hope you enjoy these Paleo white chocolate macadamia nut cookies!

    Savannah

    I was just wondering how these are paleo with the white chocolate in them? White chocolate is very sugary so how did you make that paleo? Thanks

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      Hi Savannah! The white chocolate used in this recipe is Paleo. You can find a recipe here.
      Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoy the cookies! 🙂

    Honey and maple syrup are just as bad (not as processed but higher glycemic than sugar)…is there something like stevia or erythritol that could replace it? How would you replace the liquid? I’m craving these after people bringing in the grain and sugar loaded ones to work!

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      You could probably use stevia and add a little bit more coconut oil to get the right consistency, or 1 more egg. I haven’t experimented making them honey-/maple syrup-free yet. If you give them a try, let me know how they turn out.

    I made these cookies last night and they are delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe. I substituted Agave Nectar for the maple syrup. My hubby loved the cookies too and he’s not a fan of anything sweet!

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      So glad to hear that you and your husband loved them! 🙂

    Sana

    Can you tell the measurements of ingredients in gms instead of cups please. I find it very hard to get the right results with cup measurements as the size of cup can vary. Thankyou
