Sugar-Free Sugar Cookies for a Healthy Christmas Treat (+ a GIVEAWAY!)

UPDATE: The giveaway is closed, and the winner has been contacted. Thanks for playing, everyone!

At the request of a reader, I wanted to share with you my sugar-free, gluten-free Healthier Sugar Cookies. That sounds like an oxymoron, right? Stay with me here. These cookies smell and taste just as good as the cut out cookies I’ve made every year since I was little using grandma’s recipe. The aroma of sweet cookie dough (i.e. buttery vanilla-y goodness!) filled the kitchen as I gingerly rolled out the dough.

Sugar-Free Sugar Cookies (Gluten-Free, Low Carb) for the holidays

I used my grandmother’s antique cookie cutters to cut the familiar shapes that remind me of so many past Christmases. The dough I worked with was sugar-free, but the steps for making the cookies, and the accompanying feelings of nostalgia were the same.

Antique Cookie Cutters

I posted variations with and without sugar to accommodate both low carbohydrate  and paleo/primal eaters.

If you make these cookies sugar-free using erythritol, xylitol, and stevia, they will always be soft at room temperature. Cakes and pies are so much easier to de-carb than cookies because they don’t rely on sugar for their structure or texture as much. There is, however, a solution to this textural issue. To achieve that delightfully crispy sugar cookie texture, store your sugar-free “sugar” cookies in the freezer. Seriously! Straight from the freezer, the texture of these cookies is perfect. They’re not icy – just delectably crispy. In the sugar-free recipe, I used a blend of xylitol and erythritol, since the texture of cookies is much better with a mixture of the two sweeteners than with erythritol alone.

To make these cookies paleo, use honey and palm sugar as the sweeteners, and arrowroot or tapioca starch in place of the grain flour called for in the recipe. Made with honey or palm sugar, the cookies will be crispy initially, and soften over time, at room temperature. They, too, will taste crispy straight from the freezer.

PSA: Be sure to keep these treats away from your pets! Google xylitol and dogs for more information.


Healthy Sugar Cookies

3 Tablespoons unsalted butter OR coconut oil
1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
1/4 cup millet flour* OR tapioca starch**
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
Sweetener options:
-2 Tablespoons xylitol + 2 Tablespoons erythritol + 1/8 + 1/16 teaspoon pure stevia extract powder
-1/3 cup unrefined sugar or honey + 1/8 teaspoon pure stevia extract powder

1/2 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

*You can substitute quinoa flour, rice flour, or sorghum flour for millet flour.
**You can substitute arrowroot starch for tapioca starch

Whisk together dry ingredients excluding the erythritol and xylitol. Cream xylitol, erythritol, and butter together until fluffy and smooth. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Beat in dry ingredients until dough comes together, then shape the dough into two balls. Wrap dough balls in plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour. The dough won’t hold together as well if it isn’t chilled long enough. Roll out dough between two sheets of wax paper or parchment paper, peeling off the top sheet and flipping the dough over on to the other sheet as you roll it out. Flipping the dough and peeling off the top sheet every time you roll the dough with your rolling pin a few strokes ensures that the sheet of dough won’t stick to the paper. Once dough it rolled to 1/8“ thickness, cut it into shapes with cookie cutters and bake them on an insulted cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.  Bake cookies at 325 degrees for 13-15 minutes, or until the edges barely brown. Let cookies cook on sheet one minute, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool down completely.  To ensure that moisture doesn’t form underneath the rack, prop it up on top of a couple of drinking glasses! I read about this trick and have used it ever since to avoid soggy cookie bottoms. Store cookies in the freezer between sheets of wax paper. Keep cookies frozen and eat straight from the freezer for the best taste and texture.

    The dough is chilling in my fridge as we speak. Just FYI – the directions don't indicate when to add the egg and vanilla. I assumed after the butter/sugar subs are creamed. Also, I'm making them to bring to a party, so I used a stick of butter and doubled everything else. Added a bit of cinnamon – not sure what the final baked cookie will taste like, but the dough was great! 🙂

      Pam, I have not tried making Halva. Do you have a recipe for it? It looks beautiful! I would wager that a sweetener like Swerve, mixed with a little bit of honey, would yield the best results since Halva involves tahini. Nut butter are high in fat, and tend to work best with a tiny bit of real sugar added to the mix.

    Would this work with coconut flour as the gluten free flour? Or maybe flax seed meal/flour?

    I'm on the hCG diet and will be making these for Valentine's Day, while I'm on phase 3 of the diet, which means I can have no sugar or starch. I love your website as MANY of your recipes are usable for me during this time of my diet.

      Hi, Michele! Coconut flour would make these cookies turn out dry. I’ll update the recipe this year (2013) with a grain-free version.

      December 13, 2013 at 1:14 am (9 years ago)

      Hi, JoAnne! If I figure out how to make these grain free, I will update the recipe.

    JoAnne – Unfortunately there's not a substitute for g-free flour that would yield the same taste and texture.

    If anyone figures out how to make these successfully without egg please email me @ or post about it here! I keep trying different things but haven't found the solution yet and I want for them to work out so badly. Ener-g brand egg replacer doesn't yield successful results in this. Ends up too crumbly to form together

      Lauren, thanks for your question. Either flour would work. However, buckwheat will lend a very strong flavor to the cookies.

    Hi all! I have to tell you, I made these last night with my kiddos…..and they turned out fabulous! I mean, like really fabulous! Very buttery rich and sweet…perfect! I did use oat flour and I used erythitol and xylitol combo. I added in a table spoon or two of agave because I wanted added sweetness. Only thing I would change for next time is double maybe triple the recipe and make cookies thicker. I think I will use this recipe for my holiday cookie exchange this year! Thanks Lauren!

      Hi, Barry! I’m a big fan of coconut flour. It’s just not ideal for this particular recipe. 🙂 It would yield a dry, rubbery texture that isn’t cookie like. I discuss the low carb flours I use in the E-book, so check it out if you’d like to know more!

    Okay, Lauren, I’ve got a query for you. You mention using the freezer after these have been baked. Do you have any experience with storing the unbaked dough in the fridge or freezer? I’d like to make this ahead of time to take to my parents home so that there will be no excuse not to have good sugar free cookies, but I doubt mom will let me use her kitchen , as she’ll be using it like a headless chicken. So can I premake this a week in advance and chill it or freeze it and thaw it later to roll out and cut and bake?

    • Lauren B.
      November 12, 2013 at 10:34 pm (10 years ago)

      Metqa, your comment about your mother made me laugh! You can definitely freeze or refrigerate the dough. It will roll out good as new when you thaw it out a bit. 🙂 Hope you and your parents have a lovely holiday together.

    • Lauren Benning
      November 26, 2014 at 9:37 pm (9 years ago)

      Sweaty Jain, 1/4 cup Truvia and 1/4 cup coconut sugar should be enough to sweeten the cookies. Taste the batter and add more coconut sugar if needed. Remember to grind your sweeteners to a powder in a coffee grinder or Magic Bullet before adding it to the dough. Hope that helps!

    The wikipedia entry suggests the Great Chaos was a device to insert a bit of current day issue grittiness into the tale (which is what Lee wanted to write about). However, the chapter describing the Great Chaos, itself, had Clarke’s touch to it. (Agree on reaction: I stopped reading about halfway through the last of the series)Just to add a bit of relevance, Clarke did have some fun in 3001, where he described a resurrected Frank Poole’s panic reaction to being confronted with a Jurassic Park velociraptor! (used in the fourth millenium as a useful pet and … park gardener!?)

    Really, thanks for this post. I have struggled with depression for years. There are few people interested to go into the core nature of what depression is. And for sure, it is a great blessing to be able to find others who have gone through similar trials and manage to overcome the crisis of isolation. Because, depression is ultimately isolation – isn´t it so? I do hope we can exchange some words in due time. It would very valuable. Best wishes,Julien
