Maple, Pecan and Chocolate Chip Shortbread (Vegan)

Vegan Maple Pecan Chocolate Shortbread

I seriously cannot believe how time has flown. What I planned as a little two week break from blogging while we holidayed in Canada has turned into more of a six week siesta. But I am back! And how could I make my return without a recipe inspired by my travels to the beautiful Canada and the most wonderful ingredient, maple syrup.

This is such a simple recipe that is so speedy to whip up. It takes a traditional plain shortbread recipe and combines a little drizzle of maple syrup, some crushed pecans and a sprinkle of chocolate chips into the dough to elevate the humble shortbread to the next level.

This is a great biscuit to make when you have friends coming over or to take into work to treat your colleagues. You could also wrap up a batch in some baking paper tied with a bow and give it as a tasty homemade present to friends and family.
