We are still working our way through the giant bag of macadamia nuts that we bought at the Costco in Kauai a few weeks ago. Although our trip was cut a little short by the storms, we had a wonderful time relaxing on the beaches. Both of our kids tried snorkling this trip.
If you get a chance to visit this island, don’t forget to visit Sweet Maries’s Gluten Free Bakery. This cute little dedicated gluten free bakery is only a 5 minute drive from the Kauai airport. I will be writing an article about Sweet Marie’s in the next few days.
I have been having a lot of fun with these nuts. They have a delicate nutty flavor that is very different from the walnuts or almonds I typically use in my baking. This cookie is crispy and holds up well to a glass of cold almond (or regular) milk.
Although you can use milk chocolate in this recipe, I highly recommend using dark or semi sweet chocolate chips. This rich chocolatey flavor really works well with the macadamia nuts!
