Chewy Honey Nut Cookies (photo tutorial included!)

Here are some simple, gluten-free and egg-free cookies that take minutes to whip up, with no fancy ingredients. They are naturally sweetened with stevia and a bit of real honey. The texture is very chewy and chock full of crunchy, toasted nuts.

Step-by-step photo tutorial here at my blog!

Preview:













Chewy Honey Nut Cookies

Makes eight to twelve cookies

Ingredients:

1 cup blanched almond flour
2 tablespoons organic unsalted butter
2 tablespoons raw honey (dark in color, for more flavor)
4 packets or 1/4 teaspoon pure stevia extract
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
1/16 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup chopped, toasted pecans

Preparation:
Melt butter. Stir together all ingredients except almond flour and pecans. Fold in almond flour until a smooth dough forms, then add nuts until dispersed throughout dough. Shape into flat cookie rounds on parchment paper. Bake for 12-18 minutes, or until slightly browned around the edges. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from parchment.

~5.4g net carbs per 1/8 of a recipe, 4.3g per 1/10th, and 3.5 per 1/12th

Lauren, sorry if I missed it but I didn't see the baking temperture in your post or in your blog. I am thinking of trying these with yacon syrup for the honey and a different sweetener.

Beautiful!

Oh my goodness, those look yummy! I don't know if it's the camera....but it looks like cranberries are in those. I still have a ton of unsweetened dried cranberries that are just begging to be used.

Thanks so much for the recipe and great pics!

Here's my report on the cookies...

[COLOR=red]WONDERFUL![/COLOR]

[COLOR=black]My kids couldn't wait for them to get done. We stole one off the baking sheet one minute early Mine were a bit crumbly while hot but I'm sure they'll harden as they cool. The ingredient amount was perfect![/COLOR]

Oh - my subs were splenda rather than stevia, SF honey rather then raw honey, but that's it. I know it goes against the concept of natural eating but I had to make do with what I had at the moment. Looking forward to a more natural new year!

I bet these would be good with a little bit of LC Chocolate Chips instead of the Cranberries...

HUGS!

Dh even liked these - and he's not a pecan fan. I took a nap this afternoon and I woke up eager to enjoy a cookie...well...they were gone! It's ok. I was able to eat 2 & 1/2. There are 5 of us so a dozen is just perfect! They were crispy & chewy (if that makes any sense ) and a wonderful sweet taste from the SF honey

Another GREAT recipe from Lauren! My DH would LOVE these! Do they taste similar to Keebler's Pecan Sandies?

Cylde, cranberries are a great idea for these cookies! Those are actually toasted pecans in there. The nuts turn a rich mahogany when roasted.

Bobo, thank you! I look forward to all of your recipe posts.

Christina, I'll be working on the cookie bars when I get my E tomorrow or the day after that! Thanks for the reminder. What cookies are you making for Christmas?

SnowWhite, I'm glad the sf honey worked in these! Have always wondered about that stuff. I'll admit to sneaking a square of Lindt white chocolate into one of these cookies. Shhh! Better hide some cookies from your kids next time.

Pam, these do not taste like pecan sandies. They taste sort of like candy with the way the honey sets up. Delicious but different!

I made another batch this evening. I was out of honey so I used only the splenda...and added sf chocolate chips & just a few cranberries too.

My 17 yr old son said they were soooooooo good. DH said they were the BEST LC cookies he's ever had

Congrats on a winner Lauren!

Very nice chewy cookie Lauren. I made mine using yacon syrup and diabetisweet. They turned out very nice but with my oven @ 275 degrees and on parchment it took almost 26 mins.

Oh yea, I got 9 three inch cookies from the recipe.

SnowWhite, your additions sound so good! So glad your family like these LC treats.

Kevin, thanks for trying these with yacon and taking a photo. Good to know it works with that sweetener. It's funny with ovens. I made these cookies again and they were perfect after 20 minutes, but in my apartment oven they almost burn at 13! So strange. Maybe yacon is more watery than honey?

Those are pretty carby at 3.5 to 5.4 net carbs per cookie.

But my goodness they are beautiful and look soooooooo delicious. Possibly worth the splurge!

Kathy, since I don't know the conversion for stivia I took a guess of 1/8 cup(2 tbl) and it worked great. I'm thinking mine were not as sweet as the honey version but I wasn't looking for super sweet.

H20 - I haven't tried looking for this myself yet but I would say they probably have it at the health food store.

Hey Lauren - this might be a dumb question but do you think it would be possible to leave out the honey and add more stevia or maybe a combination of erythritol and stevia?
