  • In the meantime, use a food processor and pulse Roasted Macadamia Nuts until coarsely chunk and set aside. If you don't have a food processor, you can place the nuts into a plastic bag and use rubber mallet to break into chunks.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine Almond Flour, Swerve/Monkfruit, chunked Roasted Macadamia Nuts, cream cheese, vanilla extract and caramelized butter. Mix well for about 1 minute with a hand/stand mixer. Note - make sure caramelized butter is at room temperature when pouring otherwise it will 'cook' the batter.

  • Bake at 325 F for 16-20 minutes (ours took 17 minutes) or until bottom edges start to slightly brown. Once done, wait at least 10 minutes for cookie to cool down prior to handling. We prefer enjoying the cookies once they have completely cooled down and hardened, which takes about 1 hour, but it's up to you!
