If you love chocolate and pecans you will love these cookies.

To be honest, we haven’t actually had chocolate pecan pie or traditional pecan pie. Okay, maybe we’ve had just one bite, but that was it. Our mom loves it. Not sure why, we just never got hooked on pecan pie. We like pecans but aren’t in love with them like we are tahini. We love our healthy fats but we aren’t huge on having a lot of sugar (our skin and hormones don’t like it), which you will find in traditional pecan pie and cookie recipes.

We wanted to create our own version of enjoying this classic holiday dessert without all the sugar.

These super simple pecan cookies are delicious in their own way. The chocolate coating on the outside sweetened the whole cookie enjoyment process.

These cookies look really good. I have actually never had a pecan pie before. I have always wanted to but never have made one. Maybe ill make these cookies for a healthy alternative on Thanksgiving this year. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe.

These are tagged as vegan, and, while you give an alternative for the honey, you neglected to do the same for the gelatin. Any suggestions?

Sorry about that we will fix that, any flour will work.

Hi. What’s the measurement for the pecans? It only says 1/2. I’m assuming that means 1/2 cup.

purelytwins October 30, 2015 - 8:06 am

Yes it’s 1/2 cup pecan butter. We will update it.

I use hazelnut butter since I looked EVERYWHERE for pecan butter and couldn’t find any. It tastes great! The chocolate sauce is really hard to make. It takes so long for the oil to soften enough to make it into a liquid sauce. And even with more than a few squirts oscar Stevia, it’s still quite bitter. I like it, but not everyone would. Also, I only El need to make half of the sauce to cover all of the cookies.
