GF/V Chocolate Pecan Cookies

Could you taste the coconut? I have an aftertaste of coconut, but not during. Did it taste like chocolate? Yes. What should I call them? Chocolate Love Pecan... Chocolate.. Pecan... Love. Love. So I've officially dubbed these, "Chocolate "Love" Pecan, Chocolate Pecan Love Cookies".

Apparently these are better than I thought they'd be! I got the stamp of approval from my cousin, and I'm feelin' good. Gluten Free and Vegan? #score

Ingredients: (makes 8)

1 cup your choice of flour (I used GF Bobs Redmill)
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
3/4 cup brown sugar 1 flax egg (1 Tbsp ground flax 3 Tbsp water mixed in a blender)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract 1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda small pinch of Salt
1 cup smashed Pecans (+raw)


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees In a large bowl, beat sugar, coconut oil, flax eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy.
Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the wet mixture until well blended.
Mix in the pecans.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto Silpat.
Place one halved pecan on top of each ball, then Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until set.

Cool, Share & ENJOY!
