- 1 ounce pack FBomb Salted Chocolate Macadamia Nut Butter
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/2 cup granulated erythritol sweetener
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup chopped macadamia nuts
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix the first 4 (wet) ingredients together in a bowl. In a separate bowl, sift together the next 4 (dry) ingredients.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, along with the macadamia nuts. Mix well with a fork or spoon until a stiff dough forms. Be careful to not overmix.
- Line a sheet pan with well greased/sprayed parchment paper and drop 1-2 inch spoonfuls of cookie dough evenly on the pan; flatten each spoonful slightly.
- Bake for about 12-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes before eating.
- This cookie dough is easy to work with but don’t be surprised if the dough is a bit thicker than you expect. That’s what helps make the cookies chewy. But, if you prefer a crispier cookie then just flatten the raw cookies out a bit on the pan prior to cooking.
