  • 1/4 cup cashew butter

  • 1 cup almond flour

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together wet ingredients. Add dry ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined.

  • Bake for 11 minutes. Enjoy!

    Could I use this as a base cookie recipe and switch it up to add dark chocolate & macadamia nuts or walnuts? I’ve landed upon some awesome chocolate bars lately and have been wanting to chop them up and BAKE!

    I was craving a healthier version of a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie and am SO happy I found this recipe. I followed Rachael’s recipe exactly as listed (used Bob’s 1:1 baking flour) and they are insanely good! Perfect amount of sweetness and I love that the recipe uses healthy ingredients. The cookies are a little crispy on the outside and so fudgy and soft when you take a bite in the middle. This will definitely be my go-to recipe when I have macadamia nuts on hand. Thank you for such a great recipe! <3

    Delicious! I love that these are not overly sweet. Substituted almond/cashew butter and they were great!

    1. I tried a few different ones– Trader Joe’s didn’t work as well as I had hoped, Cup 4 Cup also worked great! But Bob’s came out the best 🙂

    The cookies are really good! I am trying to find a healthier option but still sweet treats and these ones really hit all aspects of that! I am super impressed with the way they turned out! The only thing I couldn’t figure out is how to get the white chocolate to only melt enough to drizzle on the cookies so instead I rubbed it on the cookies. Thank you for the recipe!
