Calories 130kcal

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs (free-range or organic)
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil (free-range or organic)
  • 1/2 cup erythritol (free-range or organic)
  • 20 drops stevia extract (free-range or organic)
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder (free-range or organic)
  • 1 cup coconut flour (free-range or organic)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 bar chocolate (free-range or organic)
  • 60 pecans (halves

Instructions

  • Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk with melted coconut oil.
  • Add Erythritol and stevia and mix in well.
  • Erythritol doesn't dissolve unless heated.
  • For best results, powder it first.
  • Note: To boost the flavour, you can use chocolate or cinnamon flavoured stevia or add a tablespoon of natural sugar-free chocolate extract.
  • Add cinnamon and cocoa powder.
  • Mix in well using a whisk.
  • Add the coconut flour and process well.
  • Note: Sifting the coconut flour through a strainer will help you avoid hard lumps from getting into the pastry.
  • Place the dough into a plastic foil and in the fridge to harden for at least 1 hour.
  • After 1 hour, preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F.
  • Using the foil or two sheets of parchment paper, roll the dough out until it's about 1/4 inch / 1/2 cm thick.
  • Use a cookie cutter to create your shapes.
  • I used a 2 inch / 5 cm cookie cutter.
  • Place the cookies on a baking dish lined with parchment paper leaving little gaps between each cookie.
  • Roll the remaining dough and repeat until all the dough is used up.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • When done, remove from the oven and let them cool down.
  • Make sure that the they are completely cool before you add the chocolate topping.
  • Note: Coconut flour tends to burn faster than regular wheat four.
  • Keep an eye on the cookies to prevent burning! Melt the chocolate in a water bath.
  • Using a small 1/4 tsp measuring spoon, pour the chocolate on top and press the pecan halve in.
  • If you have any chocolate left, just spoon it on top of the pecan halves.
