Splurge a little and toss in some macadamia nuts and coconut in your chocolate chip cookie batter. You’ll love these Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies with Coconut. Man, these were some amazing, bakery-like cookies!!

Macadamia Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know y’all love thick and chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies!

What makes them even better are Macadamia Nuts that have been hand carried all the way back from Hawaii!

Well, maybe not hand carried directly… more like lugged around in a suitcase… but I think you get my drift.

These were super good cookies with and without the nuts and coconut. Can you believe that Mr. Quart does not like coconut? What the heck? I know, right??

So when I made these I had my obligatory one three and had to get them OUT OF THE HOUSE!

So I took ’em to Boot Camp! Lol!

I’m sure the ladies loved them as an after workout refueling treat.

I know I’m horrible!

But I couldn’t be trusted with these in the house and I was NOT throwing them away. Someone was going to eat them and appreciate them!

I hope that you make them and appreciate them. And that your family appreciates YOU for having made them.

BTW – you can omit the mac nuts and coconut if you are like my family and are pure chocolate chip cookies enthusiasts.
