Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 11 minutes
Total Time 21 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat sugar, butter, vanilla, cooled chocolate, and egg in a large bowl with a hand mixer. Add in flour, baking powder, and salt. Add in the chopped macadamia nuts with a large wooden spoon – the batter will be thick.

  3. Store in an airtight container on the counter or freeze to keep for up to three months.

Notes

Don’t have Macadamia nuts? You can use pecans, walnuts, or almonds instead.

I just made these and they are delicious! Great texture, kept their shape well, nice balance of flavors! I toasted the macadamia nuts as the oven was preheating.

I love these cookies so much! However, I'm the only person who eats coconut. The toasted macadamia nuts sounds amazing!!
