Healthy Sugar Cookies

 

It’s Monday!? Already? Where did the weekend go? Where did summer go?

Today was my first day of class though, and so I think there’s  no point in bemoaning this Monday. Instead, I’m celebrating with a sweet cookie treat.

Sugar cookies, that is. Always in season. Always the one cookie you can count on to give your tastebuds a light and fluffy pick-me-up on any given day.

 

Adapted from Chocolate-Covered Katie’s multiple-serving version, this single-serving recipe makes three (because one little cookie is just not enough, especially when it’s healthy!).

Ingredients

2 T flour ( I used spelt flour, but you could also mix flours, like 1 T ww & 1 T coconut)

a pinch of baking powder, salt, baking soda, and vanilla

 

2 heaping t milk

1 T stevia

2 t vegan butter (room temperature)

Optional: a little cinnamon (good for the blood sugar)

Directions

-Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet and set aside.

-Combine all dry ingredients. Push to one side of your bowl. Combine all wet ingredients on the other side, and then combine wet and dry.

 

Note: for softer cookies, you can refrigerate these until they get very cold.

-Bake for 7-9 minutes. Be sure not to overbake sugar cookies though; they’re supposed to be soft.

Decorate as you like! I”m not a big fan of modified sugars and food dyes, so I opted for a healthy cream spread and good old chocolate chips, but feel free to get as cute and creative as you like.
