If you are following SCD or GAPS diet, you are not eating any grains or gluten. Consequently, oatmeal is not on the menu. But you don’t have to be deprived! Reminiscent of the chewy, rough texture and sweet flavor of an oatmeal raisin cookie — this recipe will rival the best oatmeal raisin cookie in town!

Coconut Pecan Drop Cookies

Ingredients

2 cups shredded coconut (or coconut left over from making coconut milk)

1 cup pecan butter (from 2 cups crispy pecans)

2 -3 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup pureed dates

Cinnamon

Instructions

  • Soak the dates for about 1/2 hour before pureeing — this makes it easier to process
  • In a food processor, process the pecans with the coconut oil until it is a smooth nut butter
  • In a small mini processor, puree the dates
  • Add the honey, pureed dates and vanilla to the large processor and process
  • Add the shredded coconut and mix
  • The batter should be somewhat stiff
  • Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper
  • With a teaspoon drop the batter onto the cookie sheets
  • Press down on the cookies with a fork until they are a uniform 1/4″ thick
  • Bake in a 325 degree oven for about 20 minutes
  • Check them – bake until browned — it may take 25 minutes
  • The cookies will be soft
  • Leave them on the cookie sheet to cool
  • Store in refrigerator

Jill, I LOVE that you make such good quality knock offs of real foods, I am loving your blog! your coconut milk yogurt has revolutionized my life! :) Can’t wait to make these cookies….its very motivating/not depriving to stay on GAPS with stuff like this! Thanks!

HI Alison,
Thanks you so much for your kind words — it really means a lot to me when people give feedback. I’m so HAPPY you are enjoying the coconut milk yogurt — I love it too. It is so labor intensive that you really have to love it to continue to make it. But I think it tastes better than regular whole milk yogurt!

These cookies you will love — please let me know how they turn out!

One of the things I love about cooking for SCD/GAPS is that you can make treats and desserts and they are so healthy they can be eaten without negative impact. And, every bit of food eaten, including these treats is healthy.

Recipe looks great. However, you look even better. I’ve been following your blog since the beginning and it looks like you’ve dropped a bunch of weight. You look really good and healthy!

Hi Tina,
Funny you should say that — I just saw someone that I haven’t seen in a while and the first thing she said to me was that I looked “fat” in the videos.

I have been fighting the same 5 pounds for years and sometimes it’s up and sometimes it’s down. It does make a difference in how I look because I am short and a little weight makes a big difference.

I think it’s also the clothes and how the camera catches me…

But thanks for the compliment!

Do you think these would work with subbing in homemade almond butter? That’s what I have on hand and I want to try these!

Hi Rachel,
If you mean the almond butter instead of the pecan butter — absolutely! Let me know how they taste!

three times, use your hands to move the energy in three motions from the air
into the written intention with your hand. So as to not spoil the secret, I will not reveal the Reiki
symbols, however I will share a little bit on what they stand for and why one would want to learn them.
