Today, I am going to share one of my treat recipes with you! If you’re in the mood for a super wholesome baked good without processed sugar, here you go! And here’s the best part: many of these ingredients can be found in The Natural Health Advocate’s store!

This recipe originates from the following link:

Aren’t they cute?

My version is not so cute, I must warn you. And I have tweaked the recipe just a bit, as I typically do. I double the recipe, bake some right away, and flatten the rest of the dough and put it in the freezer to break off to bake later. (Ahem…I may or may not have pulled out chunks of raw dough straight from the freezer to nibble on without baking. Not recommended, technically! Ha!)

These are a perfect not-so-sweet baked good to go with your coffee or tea!

My Tweaked Hedgehog Cookie Recipe (single batch version)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper

In a high powered-blender, mix the following until smooth:

3 eggs

15-20 dates

3 TBSP Nuco Liquid Premium Coconut Oil

1 Tbsp vanilla extract (I like a strong vanilla flavor)

3 TBSP Earth Circle Organic Balinese Cacao (or more!)

In a bowl, mix the following:

1.5 cups Shiloh Farms Almond Flour

¾ cups Shiloh Farms Organic Coconut Flour

1/8 tsp salt

Pour the pulverized liquid from the blender into the bowl of dry ingredients and mix. I pull out little globs and smash them onto the parchment paper in different sizes (I like smaller ones that end up a little crunchier, and bigger ones that end up a little softer!). Tip: I have found that adding the Earth Circle Organic Balinese Cacao powder into the wet ingredients and mixed into the blender, versus mixing it with the dry ingredients, helps to spread out the chocolate-y goodness even more! Bake for approximately 15 minutes.

Don’t forget to check out the link to see how cute she makes them! The Natural Health Advocates also sell a great Shiloh Farms organic unsweetened coconut to use for these!)

Enjoy! I hope you like these little guys as much as I do!
