These No-Bake Chocolate Pecan Cookies are made with simple ingredients for an easy recipe that will cure all your sweet and savory cravings in minutes! Prepare them ahead of time for sweet treats all week long.
Pulse your oats and granola in a high speed blender until they are broken up but not powder. *alternatively, use quick oats!
Pour your oats into a medium sized bowl and set aside.
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, melt the coconut oil, maple syrup and almond butter together until the mixture starts to bubble.
Add in the cacao powder and stir until completely combined. Take the sauce pan off the heat and add in the salt and vanilla.
Pour the mixture over the oats and stir until well combined. Let the mixture cool for a few minutes until you’re able to touch it.
Using an ice cream scoop or your hands, scoop out equally sized cookies and place them on a parchment lined plate. Place the plate in your refrigerator until the cookies have cooled completely - about 30 minutes.
To add the optional toppings, simply drizzle the cookies with melted chocolate once they’re cooled. Top them with a whole pecan and place them back in the refrigerator until set and enjoy!
