Servings 12 Medium-Large Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Smooth Macadamia Nut Butter
  • 1 cup All-Purpose Gluten Free Baking Flour
  • 1 cup Chopped Raw Macadamia Nuts
  • 1/2 cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tbsp Ground Flaxseed
  • 3 tbsp Water

Instructions

  1. Combine the macadamia nut butter, the gluten free flour, & maple syrup together in a large bowl. 

  2. Put the batter in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. This helps the batter get to a perfect consistency when baking. 

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 

  4. Combine the flaxseed & water in a small bowl. Whisk & then set aside for the flaxseed to "gel" up.

  5. After 30 minutes in the fridge, remove the batter & add the gelled flaxseed, chopped macadamia nuts, & baking soda. Mix well. The batter will be thick & sticky. 

  6. Scoop the batter into medium sized balls & arrange them on a lined cookie sheet.

  7. Bake for 12 minutes.

  8. Sprinkle a little Pink Himalayan Salt on top of the cookies & enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • I used Dastony Macadamia Nut Butter
  • For flour, I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All-Purpose Baking Flour
  • The ground flaxseed is crucial to this recipe & is not optional. The gelled flaxseed acts as an "egg".
  • If you're low on time, you can skip the refrigerator step but it definitely makes a big difference.
