1 cup softened butter (see butter recipe)
1 cup raw cane sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar (see brown sugar recipe)
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 teaspoons alcohol free vanilla extract
3 cups sifted all-purpose unbleached white flour
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
3 teaspoons enery-g baking soda
4 teaspoons hot water
2 cups carob chips
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and start your mixture. While your oven is preheating, take butter, cane sugar, and brown sugar and whisk together. Then, add in your unsweetened applesauce and whisk. After that, add in your vanilla extract and whisk again. Sit your mixture to the side and in another bowl, mix together your flour and salt and stir briefly. Next, take a cup and take your hot water and stir in your baking soda. Once your baking soda is mixed with your hot water, pour it in your wet mixture, then add your flour mixture also and mix all ingredients well. Lastly, mix in your carob chips and nuts and once everything is combined, take a spoon and just drop spoonfuls on to your pan and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
Remove gently from baking pan using a spatula and sit on a cooking rack for 10 minutes or until completely cooled down.
