Also, enjoy this bonus recipe from Heather for Toasted Pecan Florentines (shown above)!

Toasted Pecan Florentines

12+ Servings

When I’m invited to a last-minute party or dinner and I need to bring a treat, I make a version of these versatile Florentines. They require very few ingredients and even less time to make, but they taste like a fancy French cookie that took all day to prepare. They are also a nice gift, especially at holiday time.


1 tablespoon almond flour
2 tablespoons brown rice flour
¼ cup pecans, chopped and toasted
2 tablespoons maple syrup
3 tablespoons Sucanat
1 tablespoon coconut oil, gently warmed to liquid on the stove top
¼ teaspoon sea salt


Preheat oven to 325°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, stir together all ingredients until well mixed.

Pinch off some dough, enough to make a 1" ball. Place on cookie sheet and repeat so balls are 3 – 4" apart (they will spread and flatten).

Bake for 7 – 10 minutes, no longer. Slide parchment onto the counter to cool. Cookies will crisp up as the cool off.


psst! Drizzle or sandwich with a melted gluten-free, vegan chocolate bar for extra decadence.

Use toasted pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, almonds, or walnuts instead of pecans.
