These healthy sugar cookies are crisp on the outside and a little chewy inside, perfect consistency in my opinion. Whether you’re welcoming kids from school, baking a treat for Santa or enjoying the evening for yourself, these healthy sugar cookies are just right.
Only 4 simple ingredients are needed. 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 or pecans, so feel free to give them a try as well.
