1/2 Cup healthy sweetener ( erythrytol, xylitol or stevia)
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla or almond essence
1 and 3/4 cup of blanched almond flour
2 tablespoons of coconut flour
1/2 cup pecan nuts, toasted and chopped
Pre heat the oven at 325 degrees.
In a deep mixing bowl add the sugar , butter, almond flour coconut flour, vanilla or almond essence and salt and mix well with clean hands till a cookie dough is formed.
Toast 1/2 cup of pecan nuts in a dry pan on the stove top at medium low heat till it becomes dark brown and lets out a delicious aroma. Chop the nuts after they cool. Add the chopped pecan nuts to the dough and fold them in.
Prepare a baking sheet and make round balls of the dough and place them on the baking sheet. Keep them in the oven for just 5 minutes and remove and flatten the round balls with the help of the flat surface of a glass or cup.
Now after all the cookie balls are flattened , place the cookie sheet in the oven at 325 degrees for 12- 14 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool for an hour. They will harden up. Enjoy with a cup of coffee. They will taste even better the next day! You can store them in airtight containers after they have cooled completely.
I also tried to make these as flat cookies by hand, when you flatten them in your hand see to it that you keep the edges thicker. You bake them in 325 degrees for 20 minutes You do not need to remove them after 5 minutes since you already flattened them by hand.
