Pecan Maple Speculoos Cookies

Photo and Recipe by: KathyPatalsky

Another great recipe using our very own speculoos spread, follow recipe below.

Yields: one dozen cookies

1 cup white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup soy milk + 1 tsp chia seeds (egg replacer)
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegan butter, melted
1/2 cup creamy Speculoos spread
note: to further moisten the dough for a more cake-y texture, add in 1/4 cup apple sauce or a large mashed banana

1/2 cup whole pecans, tossed in 2 Tbsp maple syrup + pinch of salt

To Make:
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Sift together dry ingredients. Fold in the wet ingredients. Adjust with a few pinches more sugar/flour if the dough is too sticky to hand roll into balls. Otherwise, you can chill dough in fridge or freezer for easier handling.
3. Roll into balls, top with maple-soaked pecans.
4. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool.
