Healthy White Chocolate & Macadamia Cookies!

You know when you want some cookies but also don’t want to binge-eat them all later? Well, this batch only makes 6 cookies and they are whole-wheat.

Yummy. Macadamias are awesome. Cookies are awesome. Chocolate is awesome. See where I am going with this ?

If you don’t like white chocolate you can make them with milk or dark chocolate as well. Although I must say that these cookies by themselves aren’t overtly sweet.

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg yolk (white reserved for another use)
5 tablespoons of whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
10-12 whole macadamia nuts
1/4 cup white chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In the medium bowl, add the softened butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Next, add the egg yolk and beat until combined. Finally, sprinkle the flours, baking soda and salt evenly over the surface, and beat to combine everything.
  4. Chop and stir in the macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips by hand.
  5. Divide the dough equally into 6 cookies (about 46 grams each), and space evenly on a baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 9-11 minutes, until the cookies are light golden brown on the edges and the surface begins to crack. Let cool completely, and store in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 2 days (if they last that long).
