These hearty treats are like a granola bar and a cookie rolled in one. This dough is sticky and a bit crumbly (but hey, it's gluten-free and vegan!) -- use damp hands to flatten. Cookies will crisp as they cool. Martha made this recipe on "Martha Bakes" episode 803.

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment. Scoop and firmly pack dough a using 1/4-cup measuring cup and arrange on sheet. Flatten each slightly with palm of hand until 1/2 inch thick.

  • Bake, rotating sheet once, until cookies are light golden, about 20 minutes. Transfer baking sheet to a wire rack and let cool completely before removing cookies with a spatula.

Cook's Notes

Homemade pecan flour is simple to make. Grind nuts 1 cup at a time to avoid overprocessing (which will result in pecan butter).
