White Chocolate Glaze


  • First, add butter and coconut sugar to a mixing bowl or KitchenAid. Beat until combined, about 1 minute on high.
  • Then, sift in almond and coconut flour. Stir to combine.
  • Add in remaining ingredients (except macadamia nuts). Once combined, fold in macadamia nuts.
  • Add dough to an airtight container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.
  • When it's time to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Use a cookie scoop to scoop dough. Place balls of dough at least 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Then, slightly flatten each cookie with your hand.
  • Bake for 9 to 10 minutes, or until edges are crispy and middles are set. Remove from oven and cool for 3 minutes on pan before removing to a wire rack.
  • Once cooled, make glaze. Add coconut oil to a microwave safe dish and microwave until melted, about 30 seconds. Remove from microwave and immediately add in coconut butter and maple syrup. Stir until smooth and creamy.
  • Once cookies are cooled, pour glaze on top. Allow glaze to harden before digging in!
