Here’s my tasty tower of healthy sugar cookies for Santa. I hope he enjoys my attempt at making him non-GMO, healthy sugar cookies! Whether you’re welcoming kids from school, baking a treat for a party or enjoying the evening for yourself, these healthy sugar cookies are just right.
These cookies came out crisp and a little chewy inside, perfect consistency in my opinion. Only 4 simple ingredients. I used almond flour because it is naturally sweeter than whole wheat flour, a great way to cook with limited carbs and tastes great!
My 8 y.o. helped me prep and bake them. Both of my kids and hubby loved the cookies. Few other batches that I baked later, I tweaked them and you can add raisins, dried cranberries, chocolate chips and almonds, so feel free to give them a try as well.
Ingredients: Makes 12 medium size cookies – 4 Basic Ingredients, but as you can see I listed six (Vanilla extract and salt is optional and highly recommended)
2 cups Almond Flour
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup Coconut Palm Sugar. I got it at BJ’s. You can get it online here
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Pinch of sea salt or Himalayan Pink Salt
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees (180 Celsius)
Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well all together for 1-2 minutes
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Place large rounded tablespoon onto baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Flatten slightly.
Bake until set and edges are golden brown. (about 15 minutes)
