delicious. oxymorons. (sugar-free sugar cookies)

sugar-free sugar cookies

These little guys are sugar free, gluten free, low carb and terribly festive :D  It wouldn’t be christmastime without sugar cookies, so I had to come up with a version we could all indulge in and not feel guilty (and bloated, etc.) about after the fact.  The recipe couldn’t be easier!

Sugar-free Almond Flour Sugar Cookies

1-1/4 cup almond flour
1 cup Splenda, or sweetener of choice (might need to play around with this)
1/4 cup butter, at room temperature OR coconut oil, softened
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vanilla

Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat. Stir together flour and Splenda. Blend in butter, egg and vanilla until well mixed. Form into a large ball and chill for 15 minutes or till rollable. Roll out with a rolling pin and cut out shapes with cookie cutters. You know the drill.  I used small ones, which worked well with the delicate almond dough. Bake for 8 minutes or until set but not brown. Allow to cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet then remove to wire racks to cool.

  1. Thanks for sharing this recipe!! We found out this year that my son can’t have gluten, so this recipe is perfect for us! My kids and I are making them for our annual cookie-making Christmas party and they can’t wait to share them with their friends!! ThanksE!

  2. I found my rolling pin stuck the dough even after I put it in the freezer. How did you roll it out?
    Thanks!
