Gluten Free Macadamia Nut Cookies: How to Make them

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Next, take a medium bowl and whisk together the egg, vanilla, coconut oil, salt, and sugar. Lastly mix in the baking soda, almond meal, & macadamia nuts.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a spoon, scoop out the cookie dough onto the parchment paper. You should get around 8 cookies. Flatten each cookie before baking.

Bake for 10 minutes or until golden.

Almond Flour or Almond Meal for making Paleo cookies?

Almond flour is finely ground almonds and almond meal is more coursely ground almonds. Usually you use almond flour in cookie recipes. For these Paleo macadamia nut cookies you can use either. I used almond meal because it’s what I had on hand.

Healthy Macadamia Nut Cookies: How to Store them

You can store these healthy macadamia nut cookies in an airtight container in a cool place for up to 7 days or in your freezer for up to 3 months. Simply remove the cookies from the freezer and leave on a plate at room temperature and they’ll be dethawed in no time.

Can I use another sweetener instead of coconut palm sugar?

For this recipe, I used coconut palm sugar because it gave these cookies a beautiful deep taste, like brown sugar would do. I suggest using maple syrup, maple sugar, or an erythritol brown sugar blend for a keto macadamia nut cookie.

You can use other sweeteners but they will not give the brown sugar taste. I do not suggest using stevia because it will not add any bulk to this cookie recipe.

Egg Free Paleo Macadamia Nut Cookies

Can you make these macadamia nut cookies egg free? I have not tried making this recipe egg free but you could probably use a chia egg, mashed banana, apple sauce, or your favorite egg replacer to make these cookies.

The fruit options would drastically change the taste of the cookies.

Can I add White Chocolate Chips to Macadamia Nut Cookies?

Yes, you can add white chocolate chips to these healthy macadamia nut cookies. I wanted to keep the carbs lower so I didn’t add any. You can also add dried cranberries for a festive taste around the holidays.

What Kind of Macadamia Nuts do you use to Make Macadamia Nut Cookies?

You can use any kind of macadamia nuts to make almond flour macadamia nut cookies. I used raw macadamia nuts but you can use salted or roasted.

    1. Probably but you won’t get the brown sugar taste. The cookie will taste 100% different.
