A Cookie Lover's Dream
The "Chewy Macadamia Nut Biscuits" from the Healing Foods cookbook is simply beyond delicious! The unique combination of dates, coconut, and macadamia transforms this cookie into a dream of a dessert! When my kiddoes finally retire for the night, I relax with some cookies, a piping hot peppermint tea, and my favorite magazine, ahhhh....
For those of you who don't own this cookbook, here's the recipe (with permission from author):
4 cups almond flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup macadamias - chopped roughly (yeh... took forever till I got to the nut store... but well worth it)
1 cup dates - chopped roughly
1 cup shredded coconut
Preheat the oven to 300F. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Combine the almond flour with the baking soda. In another bowl, whisk the egg with the vanilla extract and honey. Combine with the almond flour and add the macadamias, dates, and coconut. With moist hands shape the dough into ping-pong size size balls and flatten when placing onto the lined baking tray, leaving enough room for expansion. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until the biscuits have turned a golden brown color. Cool and store in an airtight jar.
P.S. I'm not having any luck with making cocoa butter ice cream. I find that the taste is just too profound for ice cream. I'd love to hear your ideas...Print this post
