How to Prepare Keto White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies
1 – Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper, or use silicone baking mats, and set the oven to 325 0 F.
2 – Take a medium-size bowl and add almond flour, baking soda, coconut, gelatin, and salt to it. Whisk thoroughly.
3 – Take a big bowl and beat butter and sweeteners in it until you get a fluffy, uniform mixture. This should take about 2 minutes or so. Beat egg and vanilla extract with the mixture.
4 – Beat almond flour with the mixture until well combined followed by adding macadamia nuts. Use a rubber spatula to thoroughly mix the latter. Form a consistent dough.
5 – Divide the dough into 24 equal-sized balls with a diameter of about 1.25 inches. Place them apart on the baking sheets and apply pressure using your hand to reach about 1/2- inch thickness.
6 – Equally divide the white chocolate chips among the dough balls and place them on the top.
7 – Bake the keto white chocolate macadamia nut cookies for about 12 to 15 minutes or until they turn golden brown around the edges.
8 – Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool at room temperature.
9 – Serve and enjoy!
● Most white chocolate chips might not melt away easily. This is ensured by pressing them
into the top of the cookies prior to baking.
