Everyone loves this classic cookie made keto! This recipe for keto white chocolate macadamia nut cookies tastes just like the real thing, complete with white chocolate chips and a moist and chewy texture, just how they should be. Perfect for dipping in low carb milk!
If you love white chocolate chips as much as I do, you’ll want to check out this raspberry white chocolate popsicles recipe, too. I promised you more keto white chocolate recipes earlier this year, and I’m here to deliver.
And these cookies wouldn’t be possible without my favorite keto white chocolate chips from ChocZero! They are sweetened with monk fruit, gluten-free, and taste amazing.
Not going to lie, I eat these chocolate chips out of the bag as a snack. But in a cookie? Even better.
Ironically enough, the packaging for ChocZero Sugar-Free White Chocolate Chips actually has a recipe for low carb white chocolate macadamia cookies right on the bag, but you know me – I’m never satisifed without my own version of a recipe. So, I started from scratch and made my own.
This sugar-free white chocolate macadamia nut cookie recipe is loosely based on my keto chocolate chip cookies, except I modified it to use keto brown sweetener and – of course! – macadamia nuts and white chocolate chips. They are soft, chewy, and brown-sugar-y delicious.

How To Make Keto Macadamia Nut Cookies
Let’s learn how to make keto white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies!
- Beat butter and brown sugar. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer to beat together the butter and brown sugar, until soft and fluffy.
FYI: Creaming butter and sweetener together creates tiny air bubbles, for the perfect cookie crumb later. I use the same technique for most of my keto cookie recipes, including shortbread cookies and cream cheese cookies.
- Add wet ingredients. Beat in an egg and vanilla.
- Add dry ingredients. Beat in almond flour, 1/2 cup at a time, along with some salt.
- Add xanthan gum. Sprinkle the xanthan gum over the cookie dough, then mix in with hand mixer.
TIP: It’s important to lightly sprinkle xanthan gum, don’t dump in one clump! It will clump together if you do that.
- Add chocolate and nuts. Fold in the ChocZero white chocolate chips and chopped nuts.
VARIATION: Fold in some keto dried cranberries. They pair perfectly with the white chocolate and macadamias.
- Place cookie dough onto cookie sheet. Using a medium cookie scoop, drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. Flatten each cookie gently.
- Bake. Bake cookies until edges are golden.
TIP: Let the cookies cool completely before moving. They will firm up as they cool, and may break if you try to move them while they are too warm. If you want a warm cookie, you can reheat it gently after it cools and firms up.
Keto White Chocolate Macadamia Cookies FAQs
How many carbs in a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie?
Each cookie in this keto white chocolate cookie recipe has just 3 grams net carbs. Compare that to the 37 net carbs in a non-keto version.
Are white chocolate macadamia nut cookies keto?
Regular ones definitely are not – they are loaded with wheat flour and sugar. Fortunately, these are perfectly keto-friendly white chocolate macadamia nut cookies.
Can you use a different sweetener?
Possibly, but it’s not recommended. For the best keto white chocolate macadamia nut cookies that end up soft and chewy, you need this keto brown sweetener. It has the moisture and flavor of brown sugar, and others just won’t do that.
Can you make this keto macadamia nut cookie recipe with coconut flour?
No, unfortunately coconut flour isn’t an easy swap for almond flour. You’d have to make a number of other ingredient changes to make that work, so I can’t make a recommendation without testing.
For best results, use super fine blanched almond flour like this.
Can you use milk or dark chocolate chips?

Use a hand mixer or stand mixer to beat together the butter and brown sweetener, until fluffy.
Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.
Beat in the almond flour, 1/2 cup (118 mL) at a time, and the salt.
If using xanthan gum, sprinkle (don't dump) it over the cookie dough, then beat in using the hand mixer.

Use a medium cookie scoop to drop rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. Flatten each cookie to about 1/3 in (.8 cm) thick. (You can make them thicker or thinner to your liking. Keep in mind they only spread a little and don't thin out during baking, so make them as thin as you want them when done.)
