Cookies are tasty and are one of the favorite snacks of kids and adults alike. There is nothing better than having a big plate full of cookies while watching your favorite television show in the living room. However, cookies are usually full of calories and carbohydrates that make it a bit of problem for those who want to keep their bodies in great shape. Extra calories and carbs is not something that you would want if you are following a diet, a regimen or if you want to build your muscles. Luckily, there are cookie recipes which do not contain a lot of calories. An example of this is a delicious white chocolate-macadamia cookie recipe which primarily uses egg whites instead of whole eggs. Egg whites have only a small amount of calories compared to whole eggs while still having a ton of protein which is good for building and developing muscles. Here’s what you’ll need to do to make these delicious cookies.


  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 5 oz low-fat, bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped salted macadamia nuts
  • 4 large egg whites at room temperature


  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 325 degrees while you start preparing the cookie dough that you will be using.
  2. First, whisk the confectioners’ sugar, the 1/2 teaspoon of coarse salt and the 3/4 cup of cocoa.
  3. Next, stir in the bittersweet chocolate as well as the 1 1/2 cups of chopped salted macadamia nuts.
  4. The next step is to add the 4 large egg whites to the mixture and then continue stirring until just incorporated.
  5. Get your baking sheets and then place onto it some parchment to avoid the cookies from sticking to it.
  6. Now you would need to drop the cookie dough onto 2 baking sheets. Make sure that they are by 1/4 cupfuls and 3 inches apart
  7. Put the baking sheets inside the preheated oven and continue baking until the tops of the cookies are dry and crackled. This would take about 22 to 25 minutes.
  8. Halfway through baking the cookies you should rotate the sheets to bake them evenly.
  9. Once you are done baking, transfer the baking sheets onto wire racks and allow it to cool completely before serving.
