Raw Apple Pie with Vanilla Frosting

I remember when I was growing up my grandmother used to make these delicious pecan cookies. My brothers and me could eat a whole batch in minutes!
I recently asked my grandmother for the recipe and I made some changes to it in order to make these cookies healthier.

Servings: 18 cookies


  • 1 ½ cups whole pecans (plus 18 reserved whole pecans for placing on top of the cookies)
  • 1 ½ cups oats
  • ¾ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup hemp seed
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup sunflower oil


  • 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line one baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2. Place the pecans and oats together in a food processor and process for 15 seconds, until ground. Transfer the ground pecans and oats to a medium mixing bowl.
  • 3. Add the shredded coconut, hemp seed, flour, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt and mix until combined.
  • 4. Add the maple syrup and sunflower oil and mix to form a cookie dough.
  • 5. Roll the dough into tablespoon-size balls and place onto the cookie sheet, about an inch apart, pressing them down slightly. Repeat to make 18 cookies in all.
  • 6. Place a whole pecan in the center of the top of each cookie.
  • 7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until firm and not too browned.
