Maple Pecan Cookies

Soft and sweet oatmeal cookies filled with maple flavor and pieces of pecans

This cookie recipe is one of my favorites by far! The oats in these remind me of a sweet breakfast cookie and the maple flavor reminds me of pancakes and waffles!

The texture of these cookies is unique and yet perfectly matched to the flavor. Because of the oat flour, they have the feel of an oatmeal cookie. The maple syrup and butter give the irresistible flavor of breakfast and the pecan pieces bring it all together. 

This recipe is quick to throw together and makes quite a few cookies making it perfect to bake and gift to loved ones or bring to a party or large gathering. 

The whole wheat flour can be replaced with all purpose flour or gluten free baking flour. The coconut sugar can be replace with cane sugar or brown sugar. The butter can be replaced with oil. ** I have not personally tested these substitutions. 

I hope you love these Maple Pecan Cookies and find a special way to enjoy them!
