Pecan Citrus Cookies.

The other cookies recipe is completely dairy, gluten, wheat, grain free. Vegan, healthy and will work for any tea party or a little sweet bite.

I made those cookies when my mom was visiting us and she really liked them. ( I was trying to teach her how to cook healthy dishes).

Pecan Citrus Cookies.

Ingredients:

1 cup ground almonds
4 tbsp organic nut butter (you can use any type of nut butter)
1/2 cup shredded coconut
4 tbsp honey
zest of 2 lemons
juice of half a lemon
1/2 tsp baking soda
about 1/2 cup pecans for decorating (optional)
a pinch of sea salt

Preheat the oven to 360°F, and grease a baking tray with coconut oil or line with baking paper.

In a food processor add the ground almonds, nut butter, honey, shredded coconut, lemon rind, lemon juice, baking soda and a pinch of salt. Process until a dough like texture is achieved. You can add more almond flour if the dough is a little wet.

Using your hands form small balls and place them on to the baking paper, a couple of centimeters apart as they expand a little.

Press down on each ball to flatten in half. Place a single pecan on top of each cookie.

Place in to the oven and bake for 6-8 minutes or until nice and golden on the outside.
