  • 2 sticks butter softened, I prefer salted.
  • 2 cups brown sugar packed
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • cups chopped macadamia nuts
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup chocolate covered raisins


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer (or a large bowl, using a hand mixer), cream the butter and the brown sugar. 
  • In a small bowl, beat the eggs and the buttermilk.
  • Add the egg mixture to the creamed butter mixture and blend well, making sure to scrape the sides of your bowl.
  • In another large bowl, add the flour, almond meal, oatmeal, baking soda, and salt and whisk to combine.
  • Add the flour mixture to the creamed butter mixture, in 3 separate additions, and blend until just combined.
  • Once the dough is thoroughly combined, add the coconut, macadamia nuts, and the chocolate covered raisins.
  • Blend until all the ingredients are completely combined.
  • Using a melon baller (or two teaspoons) drop your dough onto parchment lined baking sheets.
  • Bake the cookies in a preheated oven for 18-20 minutes rotating the baking sheets halfway through the baking process.
  • Remove the cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool completely. Repeat process with the remaining dough.
