Mmm…Cookies! One of the most delicious snacks you might be able to think of. But sugar free cookie recipes? That doesn’t sound too tasty! After all, sugar is what makes cookies sweet, isn’t it?
Well I’m here to tell you that my Sugarless Cookies taste just as good as any other cookies you might eat.
When I first found out I couldn’t have Sugar, I thought I would never be able to have dessert again.
Boy was I wrong.
I learned that once you realize what certain foods are made up of, you can find alternative ways to make them. Once you understand cookies, you can improve them!
So let’s understand cookies, shall we?
Sugar Free Cookie Recipes: What Makes A Cookie…A Cookie?!
(And How Do We Turn Regular Cookies Into Sugarless Cookies?)
So what are the main ingredients in a cookie? Most cookies contain:
I’m extremely lactose intolerant, and cannot handle Milk. So I generally will alternatively use “Almond Milk” or any other type of milk (Such as Soy, Goat, or Rice Milk). My preference is the Almond Milk as I find it tastes the best.
Eggs are not a problem, so we won’t need to be finding any alternatives for them.
Flour is not a problem either.
Sugar is obviously our main problem here, and we will be having to find a substitute for our sugar.
One sugar substitute that I swear on and use everyday is Erythritol.
Of course there are other Sugar substitutes such as Agave or Stevia that might help too. You can learn more about them on the Sugar Substitutes Page, although most of the recipes I provide on this site will use Agave, Stevia, or Erythritol.
