LOTS of Chocolate Chunks and Macadamia Nuts for Delicious Vegan Cookies

These cookies are very close to what I remember them being. I’ve been vegan for about 14 years now and gluten-free for 8. So, it had been a long time since I had a Sausalito cookie.

Sausalitos used to be a favorite and I bought them every trip to the grocery store. Even friends of my kids remember having them usually available at our house (I’m looking at you, Moranda)!

Crispy and Delicious Gluten-Free Cookies!

These have the same crispy texture and chunks of chocolate and macadamias that made the originals so delicious. Don’t get me wrong, Lavender Organe Moon Cookies are delicious. So are Tahini Brown Sugar Cookies. But these are definitely a very welcome familiar old favorite!

Easy to Make Cookies!

These cookies are easy to make. They use ingredients that are mostly available in local grocery stores. It’s a basic dough using gluten-free flour and then adding in vegan chocolate chunks and nuts. I used Enjoy Life’s Mega Chocolate Chunks. They’re not the best for eating out of the bag (I know I’m not the only one who does this!) but they’re great in baked goods. 

Easy Sausalito Recipe

For these cookies, I’ve used my own Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Flour Mix. However, if you don’t want to mix your own, Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour is awesome and I highly recommend it. Either one makes baked goods with a great texture and flavor.

Macadamia Nuts in Cookies

There’s an old movie where a woman wins the lottery and the first thing she does with the money is buy a big jar of macadamia nuts. Actually, Nicholas Cage wins the lottery and shares his winnings with her. She was a waitress and it was based on a true story. It was a good movie if I remember correctly. Anyway, my meandering point here is that macadamia nuts can be a little more pricey than other kinds of nuts and if I won the lottery I’d buy a bunch of them, too.

They’re definitely essential, though, to make these resemble the originals.

Doesn’t Have to Be Gluten-Free!

Of course, if you’re not gluten-free simply use your favorite all-purpose flour in place of the gluten-free flour. 

Here’s the recipe!
