Pumpkin White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies - Fall Cookie Recipe

Pumpkin White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies - Fall Cookie Recipe


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Bring all ingredients to room temperature; this is critical when working with coconut oil, otherwise it will solidify. 
  3. Coarsely chop ½ c of Mauna Loa Unsalted Macadamias; cut the remaining ¼ c into halves. 
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin, coconut sugar, coconut oil, egg, and vanilla. Mix well. 
  5. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, salt, and spices. Mix until combined, making sure to break up any lumps. 
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until combined. 
  7. Add in the white chocolate chunks and ½ c coarsely chopped macadamia nuts, mixing one more time. 
  8. Roll the cookie dough into 2-tbsp balls, flattening each ball slightly before placing it on the baking sheet. 
  9. Use the remaining ¼ c macadamia halves to garnish the cookie tops, pressing the nuts down slightly so they stick. 
  10. Sprinkle the cookie tops lightly with flaky sea salt. 
  11. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are set and the macadamia nuts on top have just barely started to brown. 
  12. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for several minutes, then transfer them to a wire cooling rack.
