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!
- 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)
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
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!
