I have recently become obsessed with Subway’s White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies, but that’s just not a treat I can afford to indulge in often.

So I’ve been baking away in the kitchen trying to come up with my own knock-off version for a healthy White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookie Recipe, and boy oh boy was I successful!

It took me a few tries to get the ingredients just right, and in my attempts, I realized that I couldn’t use certain types of butter substitutes and/or egg substitutes. So I had to figure out a way to fit all the good ingredients in, but still keep it a low calorie, low fat cookie.

In the end, an amazing, low Points White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies Recipe was born that tastes just as good as the higher fat version, but is a lot better in helping you reach your weight loss goals.

Now you can have your cookie and eat it too! Enjoy!
