Recipe Tips:

To toast pecans, place the nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for five minutes at 350 degrees.

If your cookies spread out too much during baking try chilling the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes before baking.

Quinoa flour is expensive, and can be hard to find. Millet or sorghum flours, or a combination, are good substitutes.
