These Double Chocolate Chunk Macadamia Nut Cookies are the perfect gluten-free and paleo-friendly cookie that everyone will love! Soft, chewy, and bursting with chocolate and macadamia nuts! A household favorite!
Nothing reminds me more of the holidays than a warm cookie oozing with chocolate chips and the just-the-right addition of macadamia nuts. I envision sitting by a fire with family and friends holding nice cup of coffee or a glass of almond milk and enjoying some delicious guilt-free cookies …or just standing In the kitchen shoveling them in as I taste-test the recipe, that works too.
I love the spirit of this season. It’s festive, full of time with family, holiday parties with friends, and a lot of reflecting and happiness for the upcoming year. These cookies are perfect for your upcoming family get together, holiday party, or for the chocolate lover in your life!
…And not that you need an excuse, but today is National Cookies Day, so get busy in the kitchen!
