White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Blondies

White chocolate and macadamia nuts – I. love. you. You’re pretty great each on your own, but heaven almighty when you’re together you make a rather stellar combination.

I love your standard bakery-style chocolate chip cookie as much as the next gal, but I’ve always had a soft spot for the white chocolate macadamia variety. In fact I think it’s safe to say that a good portion of my freshman 15 (a conservative number, mind you) were owed to those white choc-mac cookies. I ate many a meal at the Subway on campus and when the cashier asks if you want to ask a soft freshly-baked cookie for 10 cents, you say um….. YES.

I’ve tried the same cookies from other Subway locations and they just aren’t quite up to par. But if you ever find yourself near BYU in Provo Utah – get yourself a white choc-mac from their Subway. The softest, sweetest version I’ve ever tasted.

So obviously what I’ve done here is transformed one of the best cookies known to man into an easy-to-make rich and chewy blondie. Cookies are wonderful, they are, but man I really really love bars. Brownies, blondies, bars bars bars for days I love em. White chocolate macadamia nut blondies are the new thing, I’m tellin’ ya.

If you’ve jumped on board the sea salt bandwagon (and if you haven’t, what in the world are you waiting for?!) then please, I beg you, sprinkle a few of those little magic crystals right on top of these blondies, they just enhance the overall greatness here and you’re gonna thank me when it’s all said and done.

Not let’s all take a bite of the greatest blondies known to man shall we?

Ready, set……

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped macadamia nuts (such as Diamond of California)
  • optional: coarse sea salt

Instructions

  • Add butter to a small sauce pan, melt and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce to medium heat and continue to cook 4-5 minutes until butter is golden in color. While butter is browning, add coconut flakes to a small pan and stir over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes until browned (but careful not to let them burn!).
  • Add butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and eggs to a large bowl and mix until smooth. In another bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, oats, toasted coconut flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined. Mix in milk. Stir in chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. Spread mixture into the bottom of a greased 9x13 inch baking pan. (If desired, sprinkle coarse sea salt on top - I used about 1 teaspoon).
  • Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until golden brown on top. Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars. Store in airtight container.

 

Sorry, I jumped the gun.

My favorite cookie in blondie form – yummm!!!!

These bars look so scrumptious! Soft, chewy, and just plain yum! Pinned!

Absolutely mouth watering presentation! I wish I had a big pile of these on my kitchen counter…right now for some mid-day snacking! 😉 Xo, Alison

These blondies are my boyfriends dream dessert with the white chocolate and macadamia nuts. Definitely making these for him 🙂

These look absolutely delicious, and I love your photos! White chocolate and macadamia nuts are a match made in heaven. Pinned!

Holy freaking amazing. These sound so good. I’ve eaten at that subway like 90 times WHY DID I NEVER BUY A COOKIE. What’s wrong with me.

    Oh girl…. you MISSED OUT! Did you try the old fashioned donuts from the creamery?? Because if not…. we’re gonna have to discuss the continuance of this relationship…..

I am totally on board with the sea salt thing. I once saw Ina Garten use it and it looked so fancy that I had to try it. And I’ve never looked back. It’s so fabulous–just like these bars! Since white chocolate macadamia nut cookies are perhaps my favorite cookie ever (it’s really just so hard to decide), I cannot not try these glorious bars! Pinned! 🙂

Tiffany, did you use old-fashioned or quick oats?

I added 1/2 cup chopped toasted almonds and reduced the chocolate chips to 1 cup. I also added 2 teaspoons almond extract, and 1/4 cup chopped dried montmorency cherries. Very good. I cooked the bars in a glass pan @ 325 for about 25- 27 minutes

I made these blondies fir a friend’s birthday and the tur out great.

    Happy to hear that you had great success! Thanks for sharing your feedback, Patsy! 🙂
