For white chocolate

  • 1/4 cup cocoa butter
  • 2 tbsp powdered white sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

For the cookies

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 large banana (mashed)
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries


  1. Preheat oven at 375-degree Fahrenheit and
    prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a nonstick saucepan/stock pot melt cocoa
    butter on high flame (about 1-2 minutes).

  3. Turn off the flame and stir in sugar and vanilla

  4. In a blender combine cocoa butter mixture and
    macadamia nuts and blend it smooth.

  5. In a mixing bowl combine oats, baking powder and
    salt. Mix it with a spoon.

  6. Now, fold in white chocolate, mashed banana and
    dried cranberries into oats mixture. Mix it well with a spatula and let it rest
    for 1 minute.

  7. With the help of a cookie scoop place 8 cookies
    on the cookie sheet.

  8. With your fingers gently shape them round
    without pressing it too hard. (make sure to only shape it from the top and do not
    press it from the top or else it will break).

  9. Place the sheet in the oven and bake it for 20
    minutes. Once done, turn off the oven and take the cookie sheet out of it.
    Place the cookie sheet on a flat surface and let the cookies cool down for 5
    minutes. This process will make the cookies firm and they will leave the parchment
    paper easily without breaking.
