what you'll need

  • 2 1/2 cups King Arthur gluten free flour
  • 1/2 cup almond meal or flour
  • 1 tsp ground chia seeds
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup pecans chopped and divided

let's do it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add flour, chia seed, almond flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl then whisk until completely incorporated and set aside.
  • Cream butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and combine completely.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients then fold in 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Mix until thoroughly combined (batter will be thick). Form batter into balls about the size of a ping pong ball. Place on parchment lined baking sheet approximately 3" apart (do not flatten balls). Sprinkle tops of dough with a few pecan pieces then bake 9−11 minutes.
  • Allow to cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before moving to cooling rack. Sprinkle with granulated sugar and enjoy!

One Last Thing

Gluten-free flours should be stored in the fridge or freezer for ultimate freshness.
