Welcome! I am so happy you chose to gather around my table. My name is Mia Swinehart and I am a registered dietitian with a passion for simple healthy recipes, women's hormonal health, and overall wellness!
Soft, chewy, and addicting gluten free sugar cookies! These are simple, and will totally be a crowd pleaser for the upcoming holidays. I used the fun colorful sprinkles I had on hand, but just swap these with some holiday-themed sprinkles and you’re set! Plus, you can use some fun cookie cutters to get even more festive.
I used a gluten free flour blend for these (the one I used linked here). I do tons of gluten free baking around the holidays, so buy the 4-pack so I don’t have to keep running back to the store.
Also, a note on the flour used. I have not tested these with any other flours (i.e. almond flour, coconut flour, oat flour, etc.). These do not tend to be an exact substitute for all purpose flour, so I have no idea what your results will be! Plus, it’s a little overwhelming how much we bake with almond flour these days! There is no need to fear a regular treat here and then (gluten free if you need it to be), made with better ingredients but not necessarily paleo. A treat is a treat, you feel me?
A for the frosting, Whole Foods always has some good options! I go for an organic one made with simple ingredients. For the sprinkles, look for ones dyed with plants! Say goodbye to regular food dyes- loaded with chemicals and linked to various health concerns. I buy plant-dyed sprinkles online or in Whole Foods. The ones I have linked here.
Back to the cookies themselves! They remind me of those grocery store cookies- you know the ones with the bright colored frosting that everyone would bring in for birthday treats at school? So good. These are a healthier version of those 🙂
Perfect for any upcoming gatherings, or just to have a treat around at home. Blake loves to dip these in almond milk as a little night cap treat. Respect.
What other holiday treats should I make this season!? Our wedding planning is coming down to the wire, but I still always find the time to bake. Sweet tooth problems.
I can’t wait to hear what you guys think of these! Enjoy and happy baking!
