Fall in Love these Soft Keto Macadamia Chocolate Cookies
These soft keto macadamia chocolate cookies are my new go-to treats to make for a party. Macadamia nuts are pricey but you only need a little bit and well worth it every now and then. Plus they are high in fats, that can help you stay full.
I’ve always loved a nice chewy cookie especially with a slight crunch on the outside, just like the perfect brownie. As a child, I would call it a bendable cookie. haha My older sister then proceeded to make fun of me, like any older sibling would.
Share these cookies
I predict that if you love a cookie that’s like the perfect brownie, this cookie is for you! Using monk fruit for my sweetener has been the best sugar substitute I have found so far.
This monk fruit does not give the cooling effect people have found with just erythritol. So, bring these soft keto macadamia chocolate cashew cookies to the next party you attend and see for yourself.
Don’t even tell others they are low carb or keto. I did this at my work and people loved them.
As far as fats go, cashews are highest in monounsaturated fats. Olive oil is another great source of this fat along with avocados. Monounsaturated fats are a large proponent of the Meditarian diet.
The proteins in cashews will give you a complete protein profile. Cashews are also a good source of magnesium with 20% of your daily value in 28 grams of cashews, which is about 1/4 Cup.
