Keto Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

KETO CHOCOLATE MACADAMIA NUT COOKIES (2).png

These chocolate macadamia nut cookies are everything you’ve ever dreamed about.

Have you had Subway cookies? ..or bakery style cookies? Because that’s basically these but keto-fied.

They are soft and chewy in the middle but also slightly crisp just at the very edges.

Did I mention they are also huge and only 3.5 NET carbs for one large cookie?

Perfection.

Some Ingredients I’d like to Highlight

Almond & Coconut Flour I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.

– Powdered Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener  –   I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. I used the powdered in this recipe as sometimes the granular can remain a tad “crunchy” in very soft cookie recipes.

Xanthan gum This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give the cookies a chewier texture.

-I use Krisda chocolate-chips in this recipe as they are just 2 NET carbs per tbsp.. but you can also use dark chocolate or lily’s chocolate-chips.

-Sukrin brown sugar sweetener  I use this to act like brown sugar in this recipe but you can just use more powdered sweetener instead if you don’t have it.DSC_1374.JPG

Tools I used:

Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!

– Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!

– Parchment Paper

Notes

-These cookies will come out super-soft…don’t be tempted to keep baking them!! They will set and come out beautifully soft and crunchy at the same time! I promise!
