  • 3 Tablespoons Chopped Pecans
  • 1 Tablespoon Raw Cacao Nibs
  • 1/4 Cup Organic Palm Shortening, Room Temperature
  • 1/4 Cup Light Vegan Butter, Room Temperature
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 Teaspoon Coconut Flavoring
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cardamon
  • 1 Teaspoon Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Confectioner's Sugar


Preheat oven to 375

In a food processor chop the cacao nibs really fine. Then add the pecans and chop them coarsely. Add this and shortening, butter and sugar to a mixing bowl and stir together with a spoon. Then add flour, vanilla, coconut flavoring, cinnamon, cardamon, cocoa powder and stir that together.

Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place onto a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Place in oven and cook for about 12 minutes. Let them cool 3 minutes and while still warm shake them around in a large freezer bag with the confectioner's sugar.
