3 Tbsp. Maple Syrup, honey, or coconut nectar... get the good stuff
1 tsp Vanilla
1 Tbsp. Cinnamon
pinch of Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
For the Wild Berry + Salted Caramel filling:
1 Cup Full Fat Coconut Milk, unsweetened
1 Cup Coconut Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
10oz Frozen Berries, mixed berries make it wild!
1 Tbsp. Honey
Set oven to 350F
To make the caramel filling:
On medium heat, combine coconut milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt stirring until combined.
Once the mixture starts to boil set a timer for 10-12 mins. Leave it alone until the time is up, then reduce heat and simmer for 5-10 mins, stirring occasionally, or until the back of your spoon is coated in caramel sauce (times will vary).
Remove the sauce from heat and let cool.
While the sauce is heating place another saucepan on medium heat and add your berries and honey, mix for about 10 mins or until broken down into a sauce.
Puree the berry sauce in a blender and then strain in a mesh sleeve over a bowl to separate the yummy sauce from the seeds
Pour puree into the caramel sauce, heat and mix to combine until nice and soft.
For the cookies:
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl mix almond butter, egg, vanilla, maple syrup.
Once mixed, add cinnamon, baking soda and powder, and a pinch of sea salt. Mix until everyone's friends.
Roll the cookie dough into balls and then roll in the smashed pecans until nicely coated.
Place on parchment paper and bake for about 7 min, pull these cuties out of the oven and then do a little smashy-poo with your thumb to make a little crater for the caramel.
Fill the cookie craters with the salted caramel sauce and then bake for another 7 mins.
Crack some sea salt over the top of cookies and let this holiday magic cool before serving.
Now hide them for yourself because you made them and you deserve it!

Store left over caramel sauce in the fridge for pancakes!
I keep the cookies in the fridge and they take on the most incredible, almost cake like texture. These cookies can be made in advance for sure!
