Honey Pecan Cookies
These cookies are both Paleo and Gluten Free and they're so good, you'll even fool your non paleo pals! They're made with our Honey Pecan Pie coconut butter and so they've got toasted pecans and cinnamon making them extra special. They're a great indulgence because they taste great, but aren't overly sweet so you can stay on track with your low sugar lifestyle. And of course, a little dark chocolate drizzle can't hurt anyone, right?
½ cup honey pecan pie coconut butter, melted
¼ cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup + 1 tablespoon almond flour
¼ cup arrowroot powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1.5 – 2 ounces dark chocolate, melted
Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the melted coconut butter and coconut sugar in a bowl and mix thoroughly with a hand or stand mixer. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
Add the almond flour, arrowroot, baking soda and sea salt and mix until everything is combined and dough has thickened.
Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out about a tablespoon of batter and place the dough on the cookie sheet. Repeat until dough is gone.
Bake for 10-12 minutes and then use a large spatula to put the cookies on a cooling rack.
Once cookies have cooled drizzle the melted chocolate over top and serve.
