Classic Sugar Cookies Healthified [Gluten Free + Dairy Free + Refined Sugar Free]
I’m not quite sure what Christmas would be without lots and lots of baking. Sugar cookies, shortbread, and ginger snaps all come out from hibernation, and nothing quite beats it. Around this time of year, everywhere we go there are tons of homemade sugar filled treats, and while I am definitely not one to turn them down, I do like to try and make healthier versions of my favourites at home. These sugar cookies are perfection. They taste like the real deal, with the buttery feel almond flour always provides.You could absolutely frost these, but I love them with just a sprinkle of raw cane sugar before baking.
