Sharon Stroud from Sharon's Nourishing Kitchen is back in the cooking corner with a recipe for pecan pie cookie bites.

Ingredients:

  1. 2 rounded cups raw pecans
  2. ½ cup pitted, chopped Medjool dates
  3. 1 teaspoon vanilla  
  4. 1½ teaspoons maple syrup
  5. Pinch of Himalaya pink salt

Directions:

  1. Cover chopped dates with water and let soak for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain well. If the dates are fresh, soft and gooey, you won’t need to soak them.
  2. Place pecans in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Add the dates and process until well mixed, but don’t over process. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until well mixed and the dough sticks together. If the dough is very dry, add water 1 teaspoon at time and process until dough sticks together.
  3. Measure out the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls and roll into balls. Place on a baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. These cookies will keep for about two weeks in the refrigerator. Makes about 25 cookies.
