Raw Pecan Cookies

Any guess who loved these little cookies? A certain toddler does! (They crack me up…I had a big box the other night and left it on the floor, to see what would happen. Minutes later the box was across the house and the two little ones were happily playing with it!)

I really liked the flavor – and texture – of these snacks. Perfect for keeping the refrigerator when I need a quick pick up! Or when Walker wants a “treat”.

Raw Pecan Cookies


  • 1 cup Medjool dates, measured after pitting
  • 1 cup Unsweetened Coconut
  • 1 cup raw pecans
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp fine sea salt


Add the pecans, coconut and sea salt to a food process, pulse until finely chopped, set aside in a bowl. Add the dates and vanilla to the processor, run on high until finely chopped. Add the nuts in, run on high until mixed, scraping the bowl as needed.

Using a 1 Tablespoon Disher, make balls, compact in your hands, then flatten gently between your palms.

Place on a parchment paper lined small baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap, let chill in the refrigerator until needed, or store long-term in the freezer, wrapped tightly.

Carry on the trail in a snack bag, preferably protected in a hard sided container, such as a drinking mug.

Makes about 15.

  1. I finally ordered a replacement S blade for my cuisinart food processor! I can’t wait til it arrives so I can continue making treats exactly like these!
