Cookie Time! My Mama’s Pecan Fingers, Daily Dubie Style

December 14, 2012

Good Morning Twinkle Pies!!!

BAM!

Haaaaaaaayyy-aaaaaaaayyyy

…Bet you didn’t expect your Daily Dubie to be delivered THIS early now, did you?!?! …I gotta tell you somethin’, I’m FILLED with surprises these days. Call it the holiday spirit, or call it me just being psyched to talk to you all of your gorgeous eyeballs. <Sigh>… Either way, it’s pretty gangster, right?

My Honey Bunches of Oats and I woke up bright and early this morning to take a yoga class, which was a nice departure from my Pilates-central life (which I LOVE SO MUCH, but a break is nice, too). It’s always a good idea to throw different types of exercises into your regular regimen . Doing this gives your body a chance to work itself in different ways, and that switch is what continues to keep it challenged, engaged (and sexy of course!)…

Alright, now that we’ve burned our buns (or discussed it at least), we all deserve some COOKIES!!!

This week’s recipe was inspired by the Pecan Fingers my mom has made every year, since I can remember, for Christmas. Being that the greater part of their composition is butter,  the task to Daily Dubie-fy them (code for: make them healthier) was challenging. I had qualms about how they would taste, BUT I was VERY pleasantly surprised because they turned out BAD-ACE! SOOOOooOOoooOOoo yummy! Mama-you would be proud!

Check ’em out, yo!

Pecan Fingers, Daily Dubie Style

*A Dairy Free + Gluten Free Treat*

RECIPE

1 Cup Almond Flour

1 Cup Oat Flour (GF)

1 Cup Pecans, ground

1/2 Cup Agave nectar, divided

2 tsp Vanilla

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 cup Pecans, chopped

1/4 cup Powdered sugar

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350. Put 1 cup pecans + 1/4 cup agave in food processor.

Then, mix flours, vanilla, salt, and remaining 1/4 cup agave. Add pecan + agave mix and mix well. Stir in chopped pecans, then form into “finger” shapes. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Upon removing cookies from oven, wait 1-2 minutes, then roll in powdered sugar to coat while cookies are still warm. Let cool.
