Double Choc & Macadamia Cookies

Happy 2017!!!

Most who I’ve spoken have said that 2016 was a brutal year. With all that is and has happened – the heartbreaking tragedy that is Aleppo, the disgust that is Trump, etc. We are living in quite an…interesting time… Anyway let me not get into politics, 2016 wasn’t all that bad for me, I was blessed with another daughter who is the sweetest, most chilled and content baby ever! Becoming a family of four has also been quite….interesting (chaotic, completely insane and absolutely beautiful all at the same time).

During the holidays I’ve whipped up a few batched of choc chip cookies, in the search of the perfect recipe. I also have a penchant for that smell of freshly baked cookies wafting through the house and into my tummy!

The first recipe I whipped up was this Double Chocolate & Macadamia Nut Cookie – next time I will definitely be adding more Nutella! If you’re not a fan of Nutella (what’s wrong with you??) you can definitely omit the Nutella and use this as a simple choc chip cookie recipe.

Below is a step-by step video (Thank you to my amazing husband for filming this and creating the video) as well as the recipe. Enjoy!

Double Chocolate & Macadamia Nut Cookies


  • 115g butter
  • 100g white sugar
  • 100g light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 180g cake flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 100g milk chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 100g macadamia nuts, roughly chopped
  • Nutella


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla and beat.
  4. Sift together the flour and bicarb and slowly fold into the butter/sugar.
  5. Once combined, add the chocolate and nuts and gently fold into the dough.
  6. Flatten a spoonful of dough in your palm, spoon a little Nutella into the centre and fold closed, sealing the Nutella inside.
  7. Place the cookies on a baking tray and bake for 20min or until golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before devouring 🙂
