Legendary Foods Pecan Pie Flavored Almond Butter is one of my favorites, so I knew I had to bake with it quickly before I ate the whole jar. These cookies semi-defeated the purpose since they are equally as addicting (I mean, how can a cookie not be with a giant glob of this nut butter in it!?), but the good news is I had one and the rest are in my freezer. I feel like these would be a great Thanksgiving dessert, but I’m all for pecan pie year-round!
Keto Pecan Pie Cookies
Pair this low-carb cookie with your afternoon tea or coffee, or have one as a dessert after your meal.
- 10 tbsp Legendary Foods Pecan Pie Flavored Almond Butter
- 4 tbsp salted butter softened
- 1/3 cup granulated Swerve
- 1 tsp liquid monk fruit juice concentrate
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 egg large
- 6 tbsp lupin flour
- 2/3 cup almond flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 2 tbsp sugar-free chocolate chips
- 1 tsp coconut oil
First we’ll make the pecan pie centers. I highly recommend having frozen centers before you stuff them into the cookies, or else you might get a bit of a nut butter mess. To get frozen centers, scoop out 12 spoonfuls of refrigerated Legendary Foods Pecan Pie Flavored Almond Butter onto a cutting board covered in wax paper and freeze overnight. (I used 10 tbsp of nut butter total for my 12 centers, so slightly less than 1 tbsp per cookie).
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, vanilla and sweeteners.
Mix in the salt, egg, lupin flour, almond flour, and baking soda until a dough forms.
On a cookie sheet, form 12 discs of cookie dough and make a “thumbprint” in each center. This is where your filling will go, so it should roughly match the size of your pecan pie centers.
Bake the cookies for 5 minutes at 350 and then remove from oven.
Remove the frozen pecan pie centers from the freezer and stuff them inside each thumbprint.
Return to oven for about 11 minutes or until done.
Allow cookies to cool fully before removing from cookie sheet.
Melt chocolate chips with coconut oil in the microwave, stir, and use an icing bag to drizzle chocolate over the cookies.
