White chocolate macadamia nut cookies MOVE OVER, white chocolate plus walnut is a winning combo as well, plus these cookies are lower in sugar and made with whole grains too, and can even be made gluten-free!
1 ¼ cup oat flour, (if you are on a gluten-free diet use a gluten free brand such as Bob’s Red Mill (you csn also make your own to by grinding gluten free oats in food processor)
½ cup oats (gluten free rolled oats for GF diet- I used Bob’s Red Mill)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup margarine, slightly softened (preferably an all natural brand such as Earth Balance)
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup white chocolate chips (*use a gluten-free oats such as Nestle if you are on a gluten-free diet)
¼ cup finely chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, oats and baking powder in a small to medium bowl. In a larger bowl, mix the brown sugar, egg and margarine. Slowly start adding the flour mixture to the larger bowl with the egg/sugar mixture until a soft thick dough is formed. Stir in the chips and walnuts.
Refrigerate the dough overnight or at least a few hours for best results.
Drop the cookie dough in rounded spoonfuls (or use a small ice cream scooper) onto a baking sheet to make 24 cookies. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned around the edges.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies
