Grain Free Sugar Cookies

These Grain Free Sugar Cookies will make you forget you ever cut traditional flour out of your diet!

I’m not a big fan of cutting things out of our diet completely. Instead I strive to keep our diets as “normal” as possible and focus on substitution. We still eat ice cream, we just make it with avocados now. Pizza is a family favorite but we use cassava crust instead of a grain flour.

I know this is why transitioning to a whole foods diet and losing weight has been sustainable for me. It is impossible for yourself and your family to completely change your eating habits overnight. Making things like Grain Free Sugar Cookies will give your kiddos the sense of normalcy in their diet but give you the opportunity to feel like you’re helping their diet. They are perfect to make for every season!

Substitution in conjunction with moderation and kitchen appliances that made healthy eating more convenient for our family have made all the difference.

This is a fun recipe to get the kids involved with. They will love helping mix it all up and frosting them at the end.

    1. How to Make Egg Replacer with Chia Seeds. 1. In a spice grinder (I use an old coffee grinder ), finely grind 1 tablespoon of chia seeds. 2. Pour ground chia seeds into 3 tablespoons of water and stir together. 3. Wait 10-15 minutes until the mixture turns into a thick gel. Use to replace 1 egg.

  1. I am not a honey fan. Can honey be replaced with maple syrup in your recipes? Would there be a measurement difference?

  2. Help! I chilled the dough for an hour and when I rolled the dough out it all stuck to the parchment paper. ☹️

    1. Sure you can but they will be a different bake time though, so you’ll have to watch them closely 🙂

    1. Hi Lindsey,
      I am not sure what happened to the frosting recipe but it has been updated and added to the recipe card. 🙂

    1. Hello Marsha,
      Thank you for reaching out! I do not include the calorie count or nutritional information on any of my recipes. All ingredients have different nutritional information so it will always vary depending on the exact ingredients (brands) you’re using. If you need to track nutritional information it’s best to calculate it for each recipe with your own ingredients into a program like MyFitness Pal because it can vary A LOT.
      Wish you all the best!
