  • Preheat the oven to 325° and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. 
  • In a large bowl, combine ghee and maple (or coconut) sugar. Mix until fully combined. Add in the vanilla and stir again. 
  • Add in the almond flour, coconut flour, and salt. Mix dough well, until no dry spots remain. I found the best way to do this was with my hands. 
  • Add in the chopped pecans, mix again, and scoop into balls using a cookie scoop. It should make 16 cookies. 
  • Place them evenly spaced on the cookie sheet, press down each one slightly and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven, using the bottom of a clean glass, press them down again to about ¼ inch thick. 
  • Bake for an additional 10-11 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. 
  • Cover in air tight container. Will keep on the counter for 4 days, refrigerate after that. 


*Use coconut oil for strict dairy free
