30 minutes
Calories 740kcal


  • 4 ounces butter (softened, grass fed)
  • 2/3 cup macadamia nuts (softened, grass fed)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (softened, grass fed)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour (softened, grass fed)
  • 1/2 cup erythritol (softened, grass fed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (softened, grass fed)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (softened, grass fed)
  • 1 large egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon erythritol (softened, grass fed)
  • 5 ounces dark chocolate (softened, grass fed)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F (175 °C).
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, mix softened butter and erythritol.
  • Add in vanilla extract and mix.
  • Using an S-blade food processor, ground the macadamia nuts.
  • Make sure you leave it roughly ground, not turning it into flour or even butter.
  • Put the ground macadamia into a medium bowl.
  • Sift together both flours and salt, adding them to the ground macadamia.
  • Add the flour mixture and macadamia to the butter-erythritol mixture.
  • Mix on low speed until the dough starts to come together.
  • The dough now is probably crumbly and does not hold together very well, but do not worry. Shape it into a flat disk, wrap it in a plastic foil, and let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Roll the dough on the baking pan 1/2 inch thick.
  • It still acts crumbly at this point but will hold together once baked and cooled down.
  • Try shaping a square.
  • Cut out 12 or more rectangle-shaped cookies.
  • Take an egg and separate the white from the yolk.
  • Keep the yolk for later use or discard it. Mix the white lightly with 1 tablespoon powdered erythritol, and spread it over the cookies.
  • Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
  • Make sure not to burn the cookies.
  • Take them out of the oven and let them cool down completely.
  • They will get firm when cooled.
  • Optional: Take the chocolate and melt it in the microwave.
  • Dip each cookie in the chocolate and place it on a plate, lined with parchment paper.
  • Let the cookies cool down in the fridge.
  • Enjoy to the fullest and try to stop after a couple of cookies.
