Easy No Bake Pecan Pie Cookies Recipe
For such a decadent tasting no bake cookie, you’d assume that it’s a calorie bomb, but that couldn’t be further from the truth!
Not only are these no bake cookies completely keto and low carb, but it’s also made 100% sugar free! For those following a paleo and vegan diet, these also fit the bill completely!
To make these healthy no bake pecan pie cookies, you only need SIX ingredients-
- Raw pecans
- Raw nuts of choice
- A smooth nut or seed butter of choice
- A granulated sweetener of choice
- Chia seeds
- A milk of choice
Raw nuts of choice
You have the option to use any nut you prefer, however, different nuts yield slightly different results.
I prefer using raw cashews or raw almonds, as they both have a mild taste and really allow the pecan flavor shine through.
Peanuts will work, but they aren’t suitable for those following a paleo diet.
Using extra pecans or walnuts isn’t recommended, as they tend to be considerably oilier than other nuts, and the final no bake cookies will be quite gritty.
The nut/seed butter of choice
Any smooth nut or seed butter will work. Smooth almond butter or smooth cashew butter is best, again, because of the mild flavor profile.
Peanut butter lovers, this is a fantastic choice. Again, not suitable for a paleo diet!
Smooth sunflower seed butter or raw tahini are both great nut-free alternatives.
The granulated sweetener of choice
To keep these no bake pecan pie cookies keto and vegan-friendly, I used a monk fruit sweetener. It has the consistency and taste of white sugar, minus the carbs, calories and of course, sugar.
Other granulated sweeteners will work, just ensure it is suitable for your diet and has a pleasant flavor.
Readers have had success with brown sugar, coconut palm sugar, and even baking stevia.
With Thanksgiving days away, Christmas not far off and the holiday spirit truly here already, these healthy no bake pecan pie cookies will have you sorted in less than 10 minutes!
