Pecan Pie Cookie Dough Balls

Pin It!

Side note:

Yes, I’ve gone back to the old blog header.

This change isn’t permanent. Currently I’m working with a web designer the most patient person in the world to completely overhaul the site’s layout, making it much more user-friendly (including a print option for the recipes). Hopefully it will all be completed soon. New year, new blog?

Now back to your regularly-scheduled cookies…

Pecan pie cookies you can make in minutes.

Delicious and good for you at the same time. If you’ve ever had a pecan pie Larabar, that’s exactly what these pecan pie energy bites taste like.

Pecan Pie Babies

(raw and gluten-free)

  • 1/2 cup raw pecans (For all substitutions on this recipe, see nutrition link below) (52g)
  • packed 1 cup pitted dates (I use Sunmaid, found in regular grocery stores near the raisins, as they are softer and stickier than the ones found in natural food stores.) (160g)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional: chocolate chips (or mini chips, or a piece of your favorite chocolate bar)

Combine all ingredients in a food processor until it makes a crumbly dough. (You can add the optional chocolate chips either before or after blending.) Pour crumbles into a bag and smush into one big ball. Remove from bag and form little balls. Or you can make bars or cookie-cuttered shapes if you prefer. This can also be made in a Magic Bullet: halve the recipe for best blending in a bullet.

They all sound soooooo goodddddd….. 😀

    Katie, you are such an inspiration. I recently switched to veganism and your blog is such a help. I also get bashed a lot because I’m naturally very thin. I love your blog so much!

  7. Sarah says:

    Cut out cookies, yes please!

    1. Kate says:

      Seconded, but please include icing too. We don’t do sugar and would love a healthier alternative of the classic iced sugar cookies. Love your blog!

        1. Julia says:

          I fourth this! 🙂

          1. Jules says:

            I would looovvvveee to see a buttercream icing, or just any icing that your delicious little mind comes up with, for sugar cookies. Icings are always the hardest (for me)!

  8. Brittany says:

    Mint-Chocolate Chip Cookies!

  9. Julia says:

  10. Janie Kaiser says:

    i want them all to be posted! but I will settle for mint-chocolate chip and chocolate quinoa!

  11. You are driving me crazy! Pecans are so hard to get where I live – but they taste great!

  17. Lauren says:

    The cut out cookies and the cookies in jars would be my top two, because they’re the ones that seem most “Christmasy”, you know?

  18. Anonymous says:

    CUT OUTS! 🙂

  19. Angie says:

    I would appreciate you posting recipes for either the flourless sugar cookie cut-outs or the macaroons. Thanks.
