Macadamias are a delicious, healthy and Australian nut that is versatile and a divine addition to many recipes. I love macadamia and white choc cookies but I think this simple cookie recipe might just give them a run for their money.
Quick mix macadamia cookies
Top tip: Australia’s native nuts are naturally chewy, delicious, and protein-packed. They won’t last long!
1 1/2 cups raw macadamias plus 12 raw macadamia halves for decorating
1/3 cup golden caster sugar
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper.
Place the macadamias in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add the sugar and egg and process until the mixture comes together and forms a ball.
Pinch walnut-sized pieces off the dough ball and place on a baking sheet, 5cm apart. Press down slightly. Place a half macadamia in the middle of 12 cookies and arrange 5 chocolate chips on top of each of the remaining 12.
Place on the centre oven shelf and bake for 10 minutes, until golden. Cool completely on wire racks and store in an airtight container.

I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years, I have broadened my horizons considerably. In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews. Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS!
