Gluten Free Pecan Sandies (Paleo, Vegan)

gluten free pecan sandies on a white countertop

I am always on the hunt for easy, nutritious, grain and dairy free recipes for my food-sensitive family. How could you go wrong with a low-sugar, gluten free version of the Pecan Sandie?

I must confess that this recipe is so yummy and so easy, that my family and I have enjoyed a batch of these at least once a week for the last month.

But I don’t feel guilty about it, and when you see the ingredients in these little bits of heaven, you’ll understand why.
