Pecan Sandies, made HEALTHIER with just 5 ingredients
Goodbye gluten/grains/flour, SUGAR and additives. We’re using 5 SIMPLE, basic, wholesome ingredients:
- Buttery Coconut Oil
- Coconut (for a bit of texture; there’s no coconut flavor)
I’m BLOWN away how these ingredients combined make SUCH an amazing flavor. My hubs & I both said, “WOW” when we tasted these.
I used Buttery Coconut Oil from Thrive Market that I found for just $4.99 (!!) Use my link in the notes to score an extra 25% discount! Woohoo!
This is the same buttery flavor oil that I used to make my Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies! It’s perfect for adding that AMAZING butter taste.
Just Minutes to Make!
The key step in making the pecan flavor POP is to toast your pecans. Just put them in a dry skillet for about 5-7 minutes until your kitchen is filled with that wonderful aroma. LOVE IT.
Then throw everything in a food processor and blend it into a dough. That’s it!
No baking, nothing complicated. Just scoop the dough into balls, smooth it out a little with your hands and pop it in the freezer to firm up for 5-10 minutes.

Tender Loving Care
Note: handle these balls with care. They are a little fragile when you first scoop them. Packing the dough together super tight when scooping, and compacting them with your hands helps them stay together. Once chilled, they will hold together better.
If you don’t want ’em as fragile, simply bump up the amount of oil to 2 or 2.5 Tbs. That will make them firmer. It’s up to you 🙂 Personally, I love them just the way they are.
If you make these, be sure to tag me on Instagram @emily.likes.food so I can see 🙂 ENJOY!
