Keto Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

Keto Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

This keto chocolate chip macadamia nut cookie recipe is the 3rd keto cookie recipe I have made this week. You could say I have been on a bit of a keto cookie kick lately. In my opinion, keto cookies are some of the hardest keto dessert recipes to get just right. There are so many variables to consider, such as taste, texture, and moisture, just to name a few.

Specifically, it is harder to mask the cooling effect of erythritol with cookies the same way you can with other keto desserts like cheesecake. The high-fat content and moisture of the cream cheese does a great job of negating the cooling sensation of sugar alcohols.

As you have probably noticed, I have been using cream cheese in all of my recent keto cookies recipes. This has helped not only mask the cooling effect but has also helped keep my cookies soft and moist. These keto chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies are no exception. The added cream cheese makes these keto chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies extra soft and tasty.

These incredibly moist and delicious cookies are certainly a contender for my favorite keto cookie. They are basically the same recipe as my chewy chocolate chip cookies but they are loaded with keto friendly macadamia nuts. If you didn’t already know, macadamia nuts are some of the highest fat and lowest carb nuts on the market.

Not only are macadamia nuts high in fats, but the majority of the fat is from heart-healthy monounsaturated fat! In fact, an estimated 78-86 percent of the fats from macadamia nuts come in the form of monounsaturated fats.

In addition, macadamia nuts are loaded with other vitamins and nutrients. That said, these keto chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies come packed with nutrition!
