Double Chocolate Chunk Macadamia Nut Cookies

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!

  5. Fold in nuts and chocolate chips.
  6. Using a cookie scoop, or spoon, portion a tablespoon sized dough and roll into a ball and place on baking sheet 1-1/2" apart. Flatten cookie down a bit, as these will not spread very much on their own.
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes (see note).
  8. Let cool on a rack slightly before serving.

Recipe Notes

    1. We like our cookies a bit underdone, so we like to bake them around 10 minutes, but cook further for crispier cookies.
    2. Sandwich two with dairy-free whipped cream for a real treat!
