Paleo White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies have been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. It dawned on me recently that it had been longer than I could remember since I had one. While I have made plenty of grain-free and gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, I figured I could make a paleo version as well.

Made with almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut oil (or ghee), coconut sugar, egg, macadamia nuts and a homemade paleo-friendly white chocolate drizzle, these cookies are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. You likely already have what you need on hand!

The only complicated part about developing this recipe was deciding how to make the paleo “white chocolate”. Since the base of chocolate is cacao butter, I knew I could use it to make white chocolate and simply use a natural sweetener. 

This said, the white chocolate portion of this recipe is not standard white chocolate chips (although feel free to use them if you’d like), but a homemade paleo white chocolate drizzle made of coconut butter pure maple syrup, and sea salt.
