Cranberry Macadamia Nut Cookies

Serves: 10

Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a great week! Like I mentioned here, I haven’t been feeling quite myself, so yesterday I took a day to myself to rest, relax and recover a bit. I slept in, took a yoga class in the morning and then went to get a massage in the afternoon. I started noticing this weird pressure in my left glute in the afternoon (Tuesday), so I wanted to make sure I got some extra stretching in. I definitely don’t want the pressure to get worse….I have a marathon to run soon!! :) It was definitely a much needed day!

Since we are quickly approaching the holidays, I am going to continue to share some yummy and healthy cookie/bar recipes that would make great additions to your holiday dessert table! This recipe is definitely one of my favorites I have made so far! Plus it is great because you can add in or swap out any fruit/nuts/chocolate, etc that appeal to you! I hope you enjoy!

WOW! These cookies combined all sorts of amazing flavors! Sweetness of the cranberries, a hint of chocolate from the cacao nibs, the crunch of macadamia nuts! They had a perfect balance of sweetness! They were soft and chewy and just amazing!! Plus they are loaded with tons of healthy foods! How can you feel bad about eating a cookie that is so healthy for you?! (Or maybe I am just trying to justify all these cookies I have been eating) Just kidding! ?
