Paleo White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Paleo White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Best paleo white chocolate macadamia nut cookies!

Seriously.

You ask why? They are a great combination of macadamia nuts, white chocolate chips and almond butter! And even though they are flourless, they are crispy on the outside, chewy & gooey on the inside, and taste amazing! I mix almond meal, almond butter, 1 egg, maple syrup, coconut oil and baking soda to create these delicious cookies.

These paleo white chocolate macadamia nut cookies also don’t have any added refined sugar. Sugar can have harmful effects on metabolism and contribute to all sorts of diseases.  It can cause insulin resistance, diabetes, it raises your cholesterol and can give you a heart disease. It also influences your hormones, your brain, it can make you feel hungrier and the liver converts excess sugar into fat. That’s why I try to stay away from refined sugar. I try to satisfy my sweet tooth with naturally sweetened desserts, fruits and honey/maple syrup sweetened treats. I hope you enjoy these paleo white chocolate macadamia nut cookies!
