Seriously delicious, quick and flour free. I blend most of the macadamias into a paste and then blitz in some extra so they have a little bit of crunch.

I made this batch as thank you gifts but they taste great anytime. I have to hide them if they are to make it past the cooling period as they are irresistible. They are low FOODMAP, gluten, lactose free.

The mixture will be smooth when combined

Add egg, baking powder and blend to combine.
Add 1/2 cup macadamias. Blend for 30 seconds so the mixture is combined but still has a bit of texture.

I like a bit of texture in the cookies

Add the cacao powder and chips and blend for 20 seconds until just combined.
Place tablespoon sized dough balls 4 cm apart on the baking trays and press down slightly to flatten.
