Calories 440kcal

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces vegan cream cheese
  • 51 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar substitute (granulated)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon chickpea flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar substitute (granulated)
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350F.
  • Cream together cream cheese, sugar substitute and vanilla in a small mixing bowl.
  • Add in coconut flour and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Everything will kind of form a dough ball.
  • Let this dough ball sit for a few minutes.
  • Combine the filling ingredients into another small bowl and set aside.
  • Roll out the cookie dough between two sheets of parchment paper into a rectangle that is about 12" long, 4" wide and 1/4" thick.
  • It doesn't have to be perfect! Cling wrap could work for this as well.
  • Spread the filling mixture over the dough rectangle, being sure to get a little bit into each part, and leaving about a half inch of space all around.
  • Using the parchment to aid you, slowly roll the dough into a a log.
  • This is not the easiest thing in the world, and it will probably crack, but don't worry about that! I try to do this as slowly as possible, and fix cracks as I go.
  • Once the roll is all, well...rolled, wrap it back in the parchment, and gently squeeze down the roll to try and tighten everything up.
  • I roll it gently on the table a few times.
  • Chill this for about 5-10 minutes in the freezer to firm it up.
  • Remove from the freezer, slice into 1/2" disks, and place on a cookie sheet.
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes until the edges are golden and it is cooked all the way through.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely before transferring.
  • This is important, as the sugar alcohols will not set up when warm, and everything will crumble.
  • Trust me on this, they need to cool.
  • Enjoy!
