It's the holiday season! Time for sparkling lights, presents, and sweet treats. Staying healthy during the holiday season can seem pretty impossible, but I find the primal sweets really help. Hence, I bring you my recipe for Primal Pecan Coconut Cookies.
There's no need to indulge in those store-bought, preservative-filled holiday cookies when these babies are around. Of course, all things in moderation. So don't be like me and eat 5 or 6 at a time.
Primal Pecan Coconut Cookies
1 C almond flour
1/2 C pecans (somewhere between roughly and finely chopped)
1/4 C ground flax seed
1/4 C shredded coconut, unsweetened
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1/2 C butter, melted
1/3 C maple syrup
1/3 C dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a smallish bowl, mix the melted butter and maple syrup. In a separate, medium-sized bowl, mix the flour, pecans, ground flax seed, coconut, baking soda, and salt. Add the butter/maple syrup mixture to the flour mixture and combine. Add the dark chocolate chips and mix again.
Using a regular spoon, drop cookie dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies are set and golden brown. Remove cookie sheet from oven and allow the cookies to cool for a minute or two. Remove from sheet onto a plate or cooling rack.
Now try not to eat them all.
