Pecan Caramel Nice Cream (Vegan, Paleo)

Pecan Caramel Nice Cream. So, a long time ago, I created a pecan caramel ice cream recipe. The original one called for the use of an ice cream maker and also had a coconut milk base.  I wanted to make a nice cream version that didn’t require an ice cream maker at all.  The result was delicious!!

Coconut Pecan Cookies

New cookie recipe for you today.  Originally, I set out to make cowboy cookies.  Then after I had them in the oven, I realized I forgot to add the chocolate chips and oats.  Oops!  Even without those 2 things, these coconut pecan cookies still came out very yummy.  They almost reminded me of the flavors in pecan sandies.  In any case, these flourless cookies were delicious.
