Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

Here’s a treat for you! Maybe I’ll start making Sundays treat days…after all, don’t you need something to help you start the week off? Ok, maybe not…we’ll see how it goes.

These cookies use oat flour instead of almond flour. The texture of these are quite different…they are more cake like than cookie like. But, they are still good! I found this recipe on Chocolate-Covered Katie and decided to give it a try. I’ve never used oat flour before and I hear oats are high in fiber and I could use more of that! ;)

Anyway, I hope you give these a try and your family loves them!

Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies Recipe (by Chocolate-Covered Katie…original recipe here)

2/3 c plus 1/2 c oat flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

4 tbsp coconut palm sugar

4 tbsp xylitol

1/4-1/3 c chopped macadamia nuts (I measured 1/4 c into a baggie and then hit them with my meat hammer to break them up a little more to make them go farther…they are expensive, after all)

3 tbsp-1/2 c chocolate chips (I used the enjoy life brand and didn’t measure…just eyeballed)

1 tsp vanilla

2 tbsp coconut oil

3-5 tbsp almond milk, as needed (I only needed 3, actually probably a little less than 3)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 380 degrees (weird, I know).

Prepare cookie sheet with parchment paper

combine dry ingredients and mix well

Add the wet ingredients then the chips and nuts

form into balls and place on lined cookie sheet

Bake 7 minutes. They should be a little undercooked. The bottom edges will be lightly browned.

Let cool at least 10 minutes before removing from cookie sheet as they will be continuing to cook as they cool.

Store them in a jar…if you have any left (I can’t bake when hubby’s home…he eats everything up!)

Enjoy! :)
