Ingredients

Pecan Cookies

  • 2 cups pecans + more for topping

  • 2 Tbs ground flaxseed + 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp pure stevia powder

  • 1 heaping Tbs cashew butter *use roasted, not white
  • 1 Tbs coconut oil

Instructions

To make the cookies:

  • Preheat oven to 350 (F). Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  • In a small bowl, mix together flaxseed and water and set aside 2 minutes to thicken.
  • In a food processor, blend all ingredients including flax mixture, until finely ground.
  • Use a cookie scoop to place dough on baking sheet. Flatten dough with a spatula (cookies will not spread)
  • Bake for about 10 minutes until set in the center and crisp on the edges. Optional, broil on low for 1-2 min to brown.
  • Leave cookies on the sheet for 5-10 min before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

To make the caramel:

  • Stir together all ingredients except salt (melt gently first if oil is too hard)
  • Taste and adjust for sweetness, if needed.
  • Spoon about a half teaspoon of caramel on to each cookie.
  • Place a pecan half on top. Wait several minutes for caramel to set/dry, then sprinkle with sea salt.
  • ENJOY
