My mother would make pecan balls often during the winter months. I created a healthier version to what I grew up eating and they are sure to be a crowd-pleaser at your next get together! My husband and I love having these as a special treat with a cup of coffee.
2 cups blanched almond flour
4 tablespoons coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
5 tablespoons maple syrup or Lakanto Monk Fruit Syrup
8 tablespoons palm shortening or ghee
1 cup pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 325 F. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix with hands.
Once combined well, scoop out small amounts of the dough and roll into balls. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
Let cool and roll in powdered Monkfruit. Enjoy!
