April 18, 2013

My mother-in-law makes these awesome Pecan Balls that I just cannot get enough of… so I have altered the recipe a little so that it is healthier by far!!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 c. Coconut oil
  • 1/4 c. powdered sugar (your own optional substitute)
  • 1/4 tsp real vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1 – 1, 1/2 c. whole grain flour
  • 3/4 pecans, chopped finely

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Cream the oil with the sugar and flavorings.
  3. Gradually add in the flour, then nuts.
  4. Roll into 1/3 to 1/2 inch balls.
  5. Bake on cookie sheet for 20 min.
  6. Roll in powdered sugar or optional substitute while still warm.
