Gluten-Free Sweet Macadamia Nut Cookies

Macadamia nuts are high in unsaturated fatty acids and palmitoleic acids, which actually can help speed up metabolism. They're an excellent source of minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese and zinc, and they're as well as being rich in vitamins, especially the many B-complex vitamins.

These cookies are a delicious treat, and so easy to make. You can add other things to it, like chocolate chips, other nut butters, seeds and dried fruits.
