Have you ever tried Hawaiian cookies? Well, if you’re a fan of coconut and macadamia, this one’s for you. The “Hawaiian” dessert flavor typically contains a delicious combination of coconut + macadamia nuts, and these healthy cookies don’t veer from that path. However, we’ll also add JOJO’s Goes Hawaiian Chocolate Bites for puddles of melty chocolate in every bite! (Because dessert isn’t complete without chocolate, right?)

- Create the flax eggs by combining ground flaxseed and water in a bowl. Whisk together and set aside for 15 minutes to thicken.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease with oil to prevent sticking.
- Combine coconut oil and coconut sugar in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat the oil and sugar together until fluffy. Then, add the flax eggs and vanilla extract. Beat together. After, add all dry ingredients to the bowl. Mix together, then fold in the mix-ins.
- Scoop cookie dough into 16 rounds and place them onto the baking sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool.
