Mini Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

My very first job ever was at The Chocolate Chip Cookie Factory in Collin Creek Mall when I was 14 years old.  One of my favorite things to bake (and eat) when I worked there were the mini varieties of our most popular cookies.  We sold them by the half and bakers dozens and served them in a fun parchment paper cone to eat on the go!  What a treat to recreate this fond memory with much healthier ingredients…I loved cookies then and I love cookies now, especially ones that are gluten, grain and refined sugar-free.

Mini cookies in a paper cone…just like I remember them!

Mini Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

1 1/4 cup blanched almond flour

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup coconut oil or butter, melted

1/4 cup coconut nectar, maple syrup or honey

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup chocolate chips

1/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.  In a large mixing bowl sift together almond flour, sea salt and baking soda.  In a smaller bowl whisk together coconut oil, coconut nectar and vanilla.  Combine wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir in chocolate chips and pecans.  Drop by 1/2 Tbsp measure onto parchment and slightly flatten.  Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden.  Remove to a wire rack to cool.  Enjoy!

Makes 24 bite-sized cookies.

  1. Oh, goodness – you would post this the night before I begin the Whole30 regimen! *groan* Well, at least The G Man will (eventually) appreciate it.

    I didn’t know you grew up in the DFW area. I grew up in Oak Cliff.

    • Yes, I lived in Plano most of my life and then moved to Allen after I got married…my parents ditched Texas after I graduated from high school and being an only child I wanted to be near my parents so eventually we moved to Colorado…but Dallas will always be home really. I, too, am starting the August 1 Whole 30!!!

  2. These look amazing! I, too, am starting (another) Whole30 tomorrow, but this is a keeper recipe and I will look forward to whipping up some when we’re done. Thanks again for your fabulous recipes.

  3. These look simply delicious <3

  4. Oooh, these sound simply scrumptious! I can’t wait to give them a try ☺ Thanks for sharing in our linky this week!

  5. Those look yummy! Petite cookies are irresistible to begin with, and with chocolate chips and pecans, these are calling my name! :-)

  6. My friend Shirley @Gluten Free Easily just posted this recipe and I just had to try them! I saw the post on Facebook at 9:08 pm and by 9:34 pm I was enjoying the best cookie I’ve had in a very long time. I made mine with maple syrup and it gave it a great crunchy outside and a nice chewy inside. Even my husband (who can and does eat everything) said they were a great cookie! Thank you for sharing!
