Ingredients

  • ¼ cup cashew butter
  • 1 Tbsp melted virgin coconut oil
  • 3 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 ½ Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 heaping Tbsp cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chunks
  • ¼ cup macadamia nuts
  • Sea salt to sprinkle on top

Directions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Add cashew butter, coconut oil, and honey to a food processor and blend until thoroughly combined, scraping down the sides if needed.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla and again blend until thoroughly combined.
  4. Add the coconut flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda and blend until thoroughly combined. Allow it to sit for a couple minutes while the coconut flour absorbs moisture and thickens the batter.
  5. Fold in most of the chocolate chunks and macadamia nuts.
  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop your cookie dough onto the sheet with at least an inch of space around each cookie.
  7. Place the remaining chocolate chunks and macadamia nuts onto each cookie and sprinkle with sea salt.
  8. Bake for about 8-11 minutes, until the cookies look firm (they will seem doughy at first but will firm up as they sit). Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
