Chocolate & Macadamia Cookies

These cookies are my absolute favourite. I have the fondest memories of visiting my granny and smelling these cookies when I first walked in the door as a child. If they weren't already baked Grandma would have me in the kitchen with her baking up a storm, eating majority of the batter and sending me back to my parents house with a container of my favourites for the week.

Of course back in these days sugar and flour were the staple ingredients. My Mum and I have now adapted the recipe and made them much healthier and still to this day they are my favourite.
