Maple Pecan Cookies (Grain free, Dairy Free)

     Maple and Pecans are a match made in heaven! These Maple Pecan Cookies will bring you a slice of heaven! They are sweet and crunchy and the crushed pecans just give it amazing texture and flavor! If you love Pecan Pie, then you will love these amazing cookies!

These are grain free, dairy free, egg free and refined sugar free. They are not AIP because pecans right? You can make them AIP by replacing the pecans with shredded coconut.

I developed this recipe using Beth Blends Grain free and Cassava free blend for their 2nd annual Bake Off event! Have you tried Beth Blends yet? If you are into grain free baking, do give Beth Blends a try as they make the whole baking process so much easier (since their blends are premixed with baking powder) and they just produce amazingly delicious products! I have already shared a few different recipes here on my blog using both their products. My favorite one is the AIP Chocolate Cake

What are the ingredients for making Maple Pecan Cookies?

Beth Blends Grain free and Cassava free blend – Yellow bag:This blend consists of a combination of tigernut, arrowroot, and plantain flour along with cream of tarter and baking soda.

Palm Shortening: I like to use Nutiva Palm Shortening. Palm shortening gives it a buttery taste to the cookies. You can substitute with coconut oil.

Maple Syrup: Pure Organic Maple syrup gives these cookies great flavor. Since maple flavor is an essential part of these cookies, I would not recommend any substitution.

Pecans: Along with Maple syrup, pecans are also a star of this recipe. Pecans have a toasty, nutty flavor that goes very well with the maple syrup. However, you can substitute with walnuts if you cannot find pecans.

Vanilla extract: Pure vanilla extract rounds out all the flavors and brings out some additional sweetness in these cookies.

Sea Salt: A slight pinch of sea salt also further helps to enhance the sweet flavors!

  4. Divide into 12 equal size balls.
  5. Roll each ball into a smooth round using your palms and then lay them on the prepared baking tray. flatten each ball using your fingers. Keep an inch space between the cookies as they will rise while baking.
  6. Place the tray in the oven (lower rack) and bake for about 17-18 minutes until the bottoms are crisp. Remove the tray from the oven and let the cookies cool for about 10 minutes. (Do not touch them before that as they can crumble)

  1. Made these last night. They are OMG good! Tastes like healthy Pecan Sandies! So easy to make using Beth Blends. Even my picky husband loved these. Only change I’m making is raising the cooking rack. They got too well down on the bottom rack. I think they’ll be great with chocolate chips too. Thanks for this recipe?
