Pecan Cookie Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (can omit to make recipe vegan)
  • 1 cup Dr. Zevia
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp rum extract
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 tsp liquid stevia (equivalent to 1/4 cup sugar)

Hedgehog Decoration Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Lily's Dark Chocolate baking chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 9 almond slices


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk together.
  3. Add in room temperature butter and fold with a spatula to combine. Add in the Dr. Zevia, vanilla, and rum extracts and mix until dough forms.
  4. Add in the pecans and liquid stevia and stir. Use a cookie scoop to form balls of dough, then flatten with the palm of your hand.
  5. Pinch the front to form a teardrop shape. Be sure to leave space so they don't touch when they bake. Bake for 10-12 minutes (10 mins if you left out the butter)
  6. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Cracks are fine as they'll be hidden with chocolate.
  7. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil over a double broiler and stir together. After chocolate cools to room temperature, dip the wider end of the cookies so 2/3 is covered.
  8. Sprinkle the pecans over the chocolate covered cookies and transfer to a wax paper lined baking sheet. Break almond slices in half and dip them into the rest of the melted chocolate before attaching them as ears.
  9. Fill a zip top bag/piping bag or just use a toothpick with melted chocolate to add a bigger circle for the nose and 2 smaller circles for the eyes. Let chocolate cool to harden. Enjoy!
