Dark Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies (GF, Vegan)

Dark Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies (GF, Vegan)

Dark Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies are made with green banana flour, rich dark dutch cocoa and crunchy decadent macadamia nuts.

Earlier this week we posted a recipe for our Chewy Mandarin Orange Cookies. Even though these little cookies freeze well and were hidden well out of view under the broccoli, they were found and inhaled. Don’t judge me but this is the 4th time I have eaten cookies for lunch this week…well after all, it is the holiday season.

These delicious ultra CHEWY dark chocolate macadamia nut cookies are happily gluten-free (GF) and vegan. Deeply rich with chocolate, but not too sweet. When you sink your teeth into these chewy cookies with the fabulous crunch of the roasted macadamia nuts, you will not even care that they are gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan.
