If you’ve been searching for a delicious recipe for keto-friendly white chocolate macadamia cookies that rivals your favorite traditional version, then you’ve come to the right place!

I’ve always been a huge fan of the white chocolate and macadamia nut combination.

It’s truly a perfect match! The traditional version is sadly full of unnecessary sugar, gluten, and carbs, and I was really missing them badly.

Then, one day, when shopping for groceries, I saw macadamia nuts and thought, “We have to be able to make a low-carb version of white chocolate macadamia cookies!”

I quickly called my mom (Hilda), and this recipe was born!

Using our keto chocolate chip cookies as inspiration, with a few tweaks and swapping the chocolate chips for the perfect ratio of sugar-free white chocolate to macadamia nuts, we were able to create these sugar-free, gluten-free, low-carb white chocolate macadamia cookies.

The cookie texture of these is perfection!

How To Make Keto White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

Making this keto white chocolate macadamia nut cookie recipe is surprisingly easy! The cookies come together rather quickly, making them a great choice for a last-minute sweet treat. 

The first step in making these keto cookies is the creaming of the room temperature butter, sweeteners, and vanilla extract. Making sure it’s properly mixed will guarantee the texture is spot on. 

Next, add your eggs one at a time, followed by the gelatin powder. Then add your nut flours, baking powder, and salt. 

Combine until your dough forms, and then fold in your sugar-free white chips and macadamia nuts. 

Use a small cookie scoop to evenly distribute the cookie dough balls on your lined baking tray, flatten the tops slightly, and bake in a preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown.

Any leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days or frozen for up to three weeks.

Choosing The Best Macadamia Nuts

You can’t have an excellent macadamia nut cookie without choosing wisely. Macadamia nuts have a subtle yet rich butter taste that is unmatched. Their texture is both crispy and creamy. 

They are prized nuts in the keto diet because of their higher fat content. This is a good thing since the nutty flavor makes for a delicious cookie.

To get the maximum flavor out of your macadamia nuts, be sure to source them from a place with a great turnover. This nut, in particular, is quite perishable due to its high-fat content. 

To get the best flavor, I recommend refrigerating it in an airtight container until you are ready to use it.

Best Sugar-Free White Chocolate Chips

Now, the real star of any white chocolate chip-based cookie is, of course, the chocolate!

Thanks to Lily’s Chocolate and a few other keto pioneers, we’re now able to enjoy white chocolate without all of the sugar! 

My favorite for sugar-free white chocolate chips is Lily’s White Chocolate Chips; it’s stevia-based and, in my opinion, doesn’t have much of an aftertaste.

Choczero has its own no-sugar-added white chocolate chips, which are sweetened with monk fruit sweetener. These are also a great option!

Another stevia-based option is Bake Believe’s White Chocolate Chips, which has dazzling reviews!

Sweetener Options For Sugar-Free White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies

As far as which sugar substitute to use for these sugar-free white chocolate macadamia cookies, I have a few recommendations since this recipe calls for both brown and regular sugar substitutes.

Lakanto Monk Fruit Classic is their white version and it’s my go-to option whenever a recipe calls for granulated white.

It’s my favorite since the texture and flavor are what I have found to be the closest to real sugar. The brand Swerve which is an erythritol blend, also makes a great white granulated sugar substitute. 

I recommend using Lakanto brown sugar sweetener in this recipe; although you can use their white granulated sweetener exclusively, it will not have the same depth of flavor. 

Having said that, I’m also partial to Swerve brown sugar, which is an erythritol blend. Like Lakanto, it uses sugar alcohol and has a 0% impact on blood sugar.

You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure if you prefer to use a granulated white stevia-based sweetener. But PYURE does not make a brown sugar substitute. 

If your heart is set on using Pyure, you could add a tablespoon of sugar-free maple syrup for the brown sugar portion of this recipe. 

Please note that if this is your pick, make sure you reduce the amount called for in the recipe by half since it’s a much sweeter option.
