  • Yield: 8 1x


  • 2/3 cup (85g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (30g) cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup (60g) butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 medium egg
  • 3/4 cup (100g) chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup (60g) macadamia nuts*, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F (175°C). Line two baking sheets with baking parchment and set aside. Mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. Chop the macadamia nuts.
  2. In a large bowl mix the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined – do not overmix. Fold in the chocolate chips and chopped macadamia nuts. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon to form dough balls (about 2 tablespoons each) and place them on the baking sheets with some space in between. Bake for 10-12 minutes – the edges should be crisp, but the center should be still a bit soft. Take out and let cool down on the baking sheets until you can move them, then transfer to a wire rack and let cool down completely.


  • *I used unsalted macadamia nuts, if you only have salted ones, you can skip the salt in the recipe
