After being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, I didn’t want to consume the handfuls of pills three times a day that the doctors prescribed for the incurable disease I was battling.

I began looking into other options and found a diet called SCD which is also known as The Specific Carbohydrate Diet. 

It has helped me heal naturally and I have begun learning how to make my favorite recipes with different ingredients like leaving out sugar and sweetening with honey.

Ingredients:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a mixer begin mixing the peanut butter and honey.

Add the egg and extract and then mix in the baking soda and almond flour.

Once all of the ingredients are combined, stir in the macadamia nuts.

If your macadamia nuts are large you can add them to a bag and break them with something heavy then sprinkle the crumbs into the mixture.

Scoop the cookie dough onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet by the spoonful making sure cookies are uniformly shaped to ensure even baking.

Bake for about 8-10 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet for a couple of minutes before removing the cookies. Enjoy.

I love this! I'm trying to eat healthier, and right now avoiding sugar all together, but honey I'm allowed. I should make more things to curb my sweet tooth now and then.

I wish I had your talent for baking. I do try to make cookies too, but sometimes (actually most of the time), they don't look like what they are supposed to be. Anyway, as long as the flavor and healthy stuff are in there, my family would not mind whatever the cookies are not perfectly shaped. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I love macadamia nuts! Adding nuts to cookies (especially peanut butter ones) is a great way to sneak in protein! Yum!
