Cookies don't have to be full of sugar and other unhealthy ingredients — these cookies are perfect holiday treats!
I had a checklist when creating this recipe; it had to be low in carbs & paleo-friendly, include coconut flour and coconut oil, and taste as good as my mom's cookies. The last one was quite challenging but I've been told they are delicious!
Note: For a nut-free alternative, use toasted unsweetened coconut chips instead of the pecans.

Should I be Using Activated Nuts?
Some people have digestive issues when eating nuts. It's actually not that rare. However, it's not always caused by an allergy and they don't have to stop eating them.
There are "anti-nutrients" such as lectins, phytates and enzyme inhibitors that seem to be the reason for many people having digestive issues when eating raw nuts. While roasting helps to reduce the "anti-nutrients", soaking the nuts first is even more effective.
Soaking and dehydrating (i.e. activating) nuts and seeds not only makes nuts deliciously crispy, but their nutrients are better digested and absorbed by your body.
Pecan nuts need to soak for at least 6-8 hours, cashew nuts 6 hours and hard nuts like hazelnuts or almonds 8-12 hours.
Simply place them in a bowl, cover with water and leave them to soak overnight. Drain and spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and dehydrate at 55-65 °C/ 150 °F for 12-24 hours, turning them occasionally, until completely dry. When done, store in an airtight container.
