Macadamia Nut Coconut Chocolate Chunk Cookies

As I mentioned in the last post, I've been playing around with macadamia nuts and coconut lately and the results have been really yummy!  Here are some cookies I made for a baby shower a couple of weeks ago for those of you who requested the recipe, and anyone else who might want to try them too :-).

Macadamia Nut Coconut Chocolate Chunk Cookies

2 cups almond flour (from blanched almonds)
1/2 cup finely chopped macadamia nuts
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut nectar
1/2 cup dark chocolate, chopped into chunks (or chocolate chips)

Mix together all dry ingredients in medium size bowl (except chocolate) and set aside.  In larger bowl, combine coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup and coconut nectar.  Add dry ingredients and stir to combine.  I like to mix mine with my kitchenaid stand mixer, but can do by hand of course as well.  Then stir in chocolate chunks or chips.

On lightly greased or parchment lined cookie sheet, drop Tbsp sized balls and lightly flatten.  Bake for 9-12 minutes at 350, then cool and enjoy!
