Sugar-Free White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies THM S, Low Carb
These are, as the kids say, Da Bomb! If you have macadamia nuts so much the better, otherwise slivered almonds work great.
As a lifelong, avid fan of chocolate chips, in general, the white chocolate chips have always been my favorite.
UPDATE: I recently made these using (affiliate link) Lily’s White Chocolate Chips and we like them way better than any other brand we’ve tried so far.
(Note: I’m giving you the link for reference because they are generally available at Kroger and/or Walmart pretty regularly).
I’ve thought many times about how great it would be to have access to them and even contacted Lily’s asking if they might develop any; years ago.
This cookie is not crispy but it’s not soft and delicate.
It is a firm dense cookie that will totally remind you of a real live white chocolate chip cookie!
Amazon doesn’t carry these new baking chips at the time of the writing of this post but they are available at most local Walmart stores in limited quantity so if you find them around be sure and buy a couple extra packets for your THM or KETO friends!
Here’s a quick shot I got on my phone of the baking chips at my local Wal-mart.
As you may have heard these white chocolate chips do melt into the cookie and sometimes out of the cookie. Here’s release that Bake Believe put out on the subject recently.
I noticed one THMer, Jennifer, had put her chocolate chips on top so I tried it and found that worked to bake the cookies first and then stick the chips on, seems sort of weird, but it does the trick.
As a compromise, I used 1/2 of the chips in the recipe and baked the cookies. Then I saved the other half and stuck them on top while they were still warm from the oven and soft. They will still be melty for a while, as shown but will mostly hold up if you don’t insert them while the cookies are still hot.
For a future batch, I will set my timer and allow them to cool for 5 minutes then add the chips and refrigerate them for a few minutes before attempting to stack them.

This recipe for Sugar Free White Chocolate Chip Cookies works best with a natural sweetener called Gentle Sweet but be aware of the following when using it:
THM Gentle Sweet is so authentically sugary sweet because it contains xylitol and high-quality stevia.
BUT xylitol is dangerous to pets so if yours have access to your treats be sure and use the Xylitol Free Gentle Sweet (the taste and texture are not quite spot on but still a great product.
To get the unique texture of a real white chocolate cookie, all dense and chewy I combined this finely milled unblanched almond flour (I get mine at WalMart) along with the highest quality oat fiber on earth! Aff link:
If you love cookies be sure and try some of my others:
Low Carb Snickerdoodles, THM S is a soft fragrant cinnamon sugar cookie, Carrot Cake Cookies are a super yummy sandwich cookie with two frosting/filling options. The Sugar Free Cranberry Walnut Cookie from a couple of years ago and I’ll be updating soon so stay tuned!
The Pecan Shortbread Cookie is my oldest posted cookie recipe and have been called THM Pecan Sandies and I’m not sure about that but they are really good! This is the recipe that I tweaked (replacing psyllium and protein powder with THM oat fiber and adding xanthan gum and egg). The texture on these was good before but it is incredible now!

NOTE: These cookies were converted from my shortbread cookie recipe and like that cookie, they will become nice and firm when totally cooled, but are easily broken until then so let them cool on the parchment before attempting to handle them.
