MAPLE PECAN COOKIES [vegan, gluten-free, oil-free]



This Maple Pecan Cookie is perfect for a cozy evening reading or watching some Netflix. Cookies are never the healthiest haha but I gave my best to make them healthier, vegan, but just as delicious.


  • 180 g quinoa flour
  • 60 g peanut/almond butter
  • 40 g maple syrup
  • 1 chia egg (1 tbsp chia seeds + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 60 g chopped raw pecan pieces
  • 30 g whole raw pecans


  • Preheat oven to 180° celsius while you prepare the batter.
  • Prepare your chia egg by combining 1 tbsp chia seeds with 3 tbsp water and allow to sit until thick.
  • In a large bowl, combine quinoa flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Whisk until smooth.
  • Next add chia egg, maple syrup, peanut/almond butter, chopped pecan pieces, vanilla extract, and mix until a dough forms. 
  • Roll dough into balls, about 1 1/2 tablespoons in size, and space out evenly on a lined baking sheet.
  • Top with additional whole raw pecans if you like.
  • Using a flat surface container (for example the bottom of a drinking glass), press down on the cookie dough balls to flatten out a little bit.
  • Bake cookies for about 10-12 minutes, or until firm and slightly golden brown around the edges.
  • Let cookies cool and firm up and enjoy!


  • You can store in an airtight container, or freeze to enjoy later.
