These are spectacular - hard to believe they have five ingredients and are low calorie, have no sugar, and nearly no carbs.

I have a bag of Pecan Meal in my freezer procured on a trip to a Pecan Grove in Georgia last fall so instead of using Almond Meal, mine feature a touch of Southern Pecan goodness. You can choose any flavor of Jam you would like, I had half a jar of Smucker's Sugar Free Strawberry!


  • 2 cups almond or pecan meal
  • 1/3 cup Truvia or any type of sugar if you are simply looking to make a healthy cookie
  • Big pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar free preserves or puree


  • Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine pecan meal, Truvia, salt, and egg white in food processor until mixture forms a soft dough.
  • Transfer dough to lined baking sheet, divide in half, and shape each into a 7 by 2 inch long log about 1/2 inch high.
  • With a moistened thumb make a 1/2 inch deep trench down the length of the log.
  • Bake until dough is lightly golden and set, 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove log from oven and spoon jam along the trench in the warm cookie bar.
  • Cool on baking sheet for ten minutes before cutting crosswise on an angle into 25 bars, each 1/2 inch wide.
