Pecan Sandies {GAPS-Friendly}

on July 13 | in Recipes | by | with 45 Comments

Fresh Baked Love, Wrapped In A Warm Hug

. . . with a cold glass of raw milk on the side!  These buttery pecan cookies are perfect for a quiet tea with your littles, a rowdy BBQ, or even skydiving (okay not that last one, but you could eat one in celebration once you hit the ground!). Seriously though, they’re so easy you don’t need a reason!

Oh, and you can make them from scratch in 20 minutes! Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Method:

  1. Mix all ingredients (except 12 whole pecans and 1/4 tsp butter) in food processor
  2. Scoop out cookie dough in 1 tablespoon increments and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
  3. Toss whole pecans in butter and press into cookies
  4. Bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes (check often so they don’t burn)

    i now think i could feed my kids cookies & milk for lunch! love it! thx!

  2. Julie – A friend paid me the highest compliment the other day. She’s been loving these recipes so much she said she may accidentally end up on GAPS just because she makes them so often, lol! I know I’ve been going a bit overboard on the recipe sharing lately, but GAPS has had the opposite effect from what I was imagining . . . far from boring and limited, every new day brings a culinary discovery!

  3. Dude!!! This recipe looks amazing! Adding to my meal plan for next week ;)

  4. Julie Whetstine via FB says:

    we aren’t GAPS but we will go days without grains or sugar and we do look for nutrient dense foods and i try to make meals new and interesting and yes, even ‘abnormal’ — so this definitely fits what we are looking for — as do a lot of your GAPS recipes! (love the pancakes!!!)

  5. Sharmista Anthony via FB says:

    What’s the measurement on the salt? It just says 1/2.

  6. @Sharmista – Oops! Thanks for catching that. It’s teaspoon! Correcting now . . .

  7. Do you think these would work with almond instead of walnut? Walnut allergy here, but these look so good!!!!!

  8. @Ana – Yes, I think they would, but walnuts have more oil so the almond versions might be a little more dry. You could try pecan/almond/macadamia nut blend to get them a little more moist!

  9. I have a recipe for Pecan Sandies too and I just love them. So easy to make and wonderful maple syrupy goodness!

  10. Mae says:

    I awesome! Thanks Heather!

  11. Is it posted at Breastfeeding Moms Unite!, Melodie? I’d love to post for mamas who are not grain free :)

  12. Heather Knickerbocker says:

    what are crispy pecans? and could i do it with pecans only? it seems to be the only nut i am not allergic to raw. all others if i eat in their raw state i get itchy and my health car professional has suggested i stay away from all nuts i am allergic to in their raw state.

  13. rawkinmom says:

    wow…these look dangerous!!! I would have to eat the whole batch!!! LOL

  14. Kirsten says:

    WOW, YUMMMMMMY! I made these last night, and they are quite possibly the yummiest (and definitely the easiest) cookies I’ve ever had! Gotta love it when you can give them to your family for breakfast too without any remorse. :) I’m on the “accidental GAPS” track too! If I get organized I may do it for real. ;)

  15. Russell Hemati says:

    Just to add my endorsement – I had (too many of) these the other evening. Totally awesome dessert. I would never have guessed they used so few ingredients.

    These were just amazing! The small group at church loved them! I didn’t have quite enough of the pecans or walnuts, so I added some almonds and they still turned out delicious. Thank you for this yummy recipe

  20. If they don’t freeze well, you can overnight some to me in NC! ;D

    Seriously, though, have a great party! :D

  21. Alexis Dunigan via FB says:

    Wished we lived closer to come – GA is a just a little far :) Have a fun party!

  22. Rachel Karr via FB says:

    I’m pregnant, I’ll try to save some for other people haha!

  23. Perfect timing – planning a GAPS afternoon tea soon and they’ll be perfect!

  24. Lol, Jessica Boniface! Maybe I’ll just deliver a batch in person sometime . . . have always wanted to see NC!

  25. Jaime Adams via FB says:

    Just waiting on fiance to get back from an oil change with the good car then we’re headed that way :)

  26. They were all three soooooo yummy! Thanks for the inspiration to make them. My kids loved them all!

  27. Thank you so much for coming, Sunny Britting Espanet! I want to hear more about what you were telling me . . . hope you start a blog so I can!

  28. kelly v says:

    Heather, I just made these and they taste great! Mine aren’t standing up quite the way yours are…what do you think I’ve done wrong?

    • Heather says:

      Yay, so glad you like them! My guess is that the nuts I used were more densely packed so the ratio to butter was higher (butter causes them to spread out). Mine sometimes do that :)

  29. Rachel Karr via FB says:

    Oh my goodness, everything you brought was amazing!! Thank you! My daughter and I had to be rolled out to the car we were so full! ( That plus the Jasmine kombucha!!)

  30. Spring is a lovely time to visit the mountains of NC – it’s guh-ore-jus!!! (hehe…sometimes, creative spelling/punctuation is required to convey the tone of voice.) :D

  31. Jessica Boniface – Ahhh, Daddypotamus and I have been talking about a trip to NC. It probably won’t be this spring, but I’d love to meet up if we can!

  32. Tami says:

    Instead of butter would coconut oil work for us dairy free folks?
