Homestyle Date Sugar Cookies a.k.a. You Won’t Believe They’re Healthy-ISH!

Homestyle Date Sugar Cookies a.k.a. You Won’t Believe They’re Healthy-ISH!

Okay, so there’s no denying that these babies contain a bit more sugar than the usual KITK recipe but #YOLO! Plus, they’re sugar cookies… what do you expect?

The best part about these babies is that at least the sugar is healthy: date sugar FTW! Not only is it a lot lower glycemic than refined sugar, but it also packs a ton of fibre & antioxidants. It’s actually not even real sugar! it’s basically just ground up dates!

I don’t think I need to convince you to make these babes… the pics speak for themselves! But just in case, think crumbly tops & moist & chewy insides!

Let me tell you, they were a hit! I made them just a few hours ago & shared them with tons of friends at the gym & they’re all gone! And when I say all gone, I’m not even exaggerating!

YOU NEED:

  • 1 + 1/4 cup almond butter or PB
  • 1 cup date sugar
  • 2 eggs OR 2 flax eggs (add 2 tbsp. flax & 6 tbsp. water to a bowl, stir & let sit for 5 minutes)
  • 1 tsp. pure organic vanilla extract
  • 1 + 1/4 cup gluten free brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup protein or collagen powder of choice
  • 2 tsp. Baking powder
  • Pinch Celtic sea salt

HOW TO?:

  • Add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl & mix until combined & incorporated.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 & line 2 baking sheets with aluminum or parchment paper. Spray lightly with coconut oil.
  • Roll the cookies into balls then gently flatten them on the baking sheet. They’ll spread a bit once baked.

  • If you wish, press down on the cookies with a fork to create little marks (aka to make them pretty!!).
  • Bake for 12-13 minutes until tops & edges are browned.
  • Let them sit for about 10 minutes to cool & firm up a bit more.
  • Enjoy!
