  • 1 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar free sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 cups finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated orange peel optional
  • 1/2 cup sugar free powdered sweetener
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated nutmeg


  • Cream the butter and sweetener together until well blended, light, and fluffy.
  • Beat in the vanilla and pecans.
  • Add the coconut flour and beat on low until well combined.
  • Chill for 30 minutes or up to 2 days.
  • Preheat the oven to 325F.
  • Stir the powdered sweetener and nutmeg together until well mixed.
  • For the dough into 1-1/4 inch balls.
  • Roll each ball in the nutmeg mixture.
  • Place on a baking sheet covered with Sil-pat sheet or parchment.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until light, golden brown.
  • They will probably lose their "ball" shape but it's ok.
  • Let cool completely on the cookie sheet. If you try to move them when they are still warm you'll have crumbs.
