Vegan Choco Ginger Macadamia Nut Cookies

Hello friends!

One of my all-time favorite cookies is the traditional white chocolate macadamia cookie. Unfortunately, this is a very rare cookie to find made vegan. This is probably because vegan white chocolate chips are about as hard to find as unicorns. Tonight I opened my cupboards, took a look at what I had in stock, and decided to try a new spin on the macadamia nut cookie. The end result is a gooey, moist chocolate chip ginger macadamia nut cookie.
