If you love maple, oatmeal, coconut, and pecan flavors you are going to love these maple pecan cookies!
I am pretty obsessed with this recipe that I’m sharing today you guys. I’m a big fan of dessert in general, but these Peanut Butter Cookies and Perfect Chocolate No Bake Cookies are some of my favorites.
Anyway, have you ever had a breakfast cookie? That’s kind of what these are – except you can have them for dessert or any time you want. These babies are packed with organic ingredients and I feel 100% good about having one or two of these for breakfast!
Maple Pecan Cookies
When I came up with this recipe I was thinking about some maple pecan cookies that I had a few years ago. We all loved them so much. I decided to take that recipe and add oatmeal and coconut to really take them to the next level! I’m so happy with how they turned out.
I couldn’t stop eating them, so I gave some away to a friend and froze a bunch too. They are really easy to defrost so I just pull a couple out each morning and enjoy it about five minutes later!
The brown sugar, oats, maple syrup and pecan halves I used are all organic! I’m not an exclusively organic eater but I do prefer it when I have the choice.
And aren’t they so cute with the pecan halves on top? Maple pecan cookies feel a little bit fancy when they really couldn’t be easier to make.
If you like this recipe, we’d love if you would leave us a comment and positive review!
