No-Bake Caramel Pecan Cookie Bites

No-Bake Caramel Pecan Cookie Bites

These no-bake cookie bites are vegan, paleo, come together super quickly, and taste like little pieces of pecan pie!


INGREDIENTS:

Bites

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 tbsp nut milk
  • 1/3 cup Pecan butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup protein powder (can sub oats or almond flour)

Chocolate Coating

  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

INSTRUCTIONS:


Add the coconut oil to a small sauce pan over medium heat. Once melted, add remaining ingredients besides the protein powder and pecans.
Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat and stir in the protein and chopped pecans.
Using a small cookie scoop (or spoonful), scoop the warm dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Place in the freezer to harden, about 30 minutes.
Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together until completely smooth.
Once the cookies have hardened a bit, remove from the freezer. Dip each cookie into the melted chocolate and return to the cookie sheet.
Place back in the freezer until set!
