Lol, yep, I assumed skin on the apple, as well. The phrasing of that was a little weird. And, I took it to read one cup each of the two different kinds of nuts. I didn't have macadamias, so I used almonds and filberts, and that worked well.
I know it seems like I'm posting only sweet things, but I think it's because they are trickier to incorporate in a healthy way into a Paleo eating plan. Meat and veggies are easy, lol! Anyway, I made these this evening, and I like the way they turned out. No stevia/maple syrup/etc in these, which is something I look for in a treat. The whole batch is just sweetened by one banana and an apple. I got it from Fast Paleo, but it looks like it originally came from Civilized Caveman Cooking. fastpaleo.com/apple-banana-cookies/
Ingredients 1 Cup chopped Red apples, skin on 1 Banana 1 Cup Raw Almonds 1 Cup Macadami Nuts 1 Cup Shredded Unsweetened Coconut 2 Tbsp Cinnamon 2 Tsp Vanilla 2 Tsp Coconut Oil, melted 3 Eggs
Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees Place your almonds and macadamia nuts in your food processor and pulse until they are mixed together and in small chunks Place them in your mixing bowl Next add your apples and banana to your food processor and mix well Transfer that to your mixing bowl with your nuts Now add in your coconut, cinnamon, vanilla, coconut oil, and eggs and mix well using a hand mixer or if your feeling strong use some of that old fashion elbow grease Using a cookie scoop, form your cookie balls on your parchment paper lined cookie sheet Once your sheet is full, flatten your balls into cookie shapes Place in your preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the bottom of your cookies are nice and lightly brown Enjoy
