Hey Fitnessista readers!
We are the twins, Lori and Michelle, from pure2raw. When Gina asked me to do a guest post, I was thrilled and honored. Lori and I have a fun holiday recipe and we hope you like it!!! I know Gina is a big fan of easy and delicious desserts! We had our fair share of desserts while at school together 😉 Lori and I love anything with chocolate, so we got to thinking…pecans are in season and coconut just pairs wonderfully with both…this no-bake chocolate pecan brownie biscotti (now that is a mouthful) was created! We shaped them like a biscotti for fun and because we just love anything resembling a biscotti. It is not dry like a traditional biscotti, but more rich like a brownie without being overly sweet. Pure2raw recipe: No-bake chocolate pecan biscotti cookies
- 2 cups pecans (whole pieces)
- 1/2 cup coconut flakes
- 1 cup cocoa
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
Directions: Place pecans, coconut flakes, cocoa, salt, and cinnamon into food processor, and pulse together to get small crumbs. Then add vanilla, coconut oil, and maple syrup. Pulse till combined. Spread batter onto cookie tray (parchment or wax paper will help prevent sticking) and shape into a biscotti log. Now here you can get creative and shape the dough anyway you like! Cut into strips. Place in fridge to set for a few hours. © 2010 Pure2raw Enjoy as is…or dip them into chocolate and roll in coconut flakes. No-bake chocolate pecan brownie biscotti make for a wonderful holiday gift 🙂
