Kona Coffee Macadamia Chunk Cookies

Kona Coffee Macadamia Chunk Cookies

Makes: 1 dozen cookies

Time: 30 minutes


1 tablespoon ground chia seeds (ground flax seeds should work too)
1/3 cup nondairy milk
1 3/4 cup oat flour
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1 teaspoon instant espresso granules 
1/3 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
1/3 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup coconut flakes


Preheat oven to 350ºF and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Combine the chia seeds and nondairy milk in a medium bowl, set aside.

Combine the oat flour, baking powder, salt and both sugars in a large bowl. 

Add the coconut oil, coconut extract, and espresso granules to the nondairy milk and chia seed mixture, and stir to combine. If the coconut oil hardens up at all, pop in the microwave for a few seconds to make sure it is melted. Add the wet mixture to the flour mixture and beat until combined. Stir in the coconut flakes, macadamia nuts, and chocolate chips. 

Drop by generous tablespoons onto the lined cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes until cookies are lightly browned.
