Healthy Brown Sugar Spritz Cookies
Experiment #1: SPRITZ COOKIES!
What just popped into your head when I
typed shouted that? I don’t know about you, but the first thing that came to my mind was butter. Then sugar. And then refined white flour and “unhealthy” and toootally not nutritious.
Experiment #2: HEALTHY SPRITZ COOKIES!
So what came to your mind this time? Personally, my mind kind of scrambled at that statement. It just doesn’t make sense, like, healthy cookies are enough of a stretch, but healthy spritz cookies just sound too good to be true…
Oh, but it isn’t. I promise. I know these guilt-free cookies exist for a fact, because well, I ate them.
A lot of them…
These Healthy Brown Sugar Spritz Cookies are sweet without the refined sugar and they are rich without the hormone-injected butter (the entire recipe only calls for 4.5 tbs of oil which is far less than the typical cookie recipe that requires cups upon cups of butter). These are just as tasty as regular spritz cookies with the same “crumble-factor,” but are secretly good for you!
I imagine you are probably wondering why I have both star-shaped cookies on the plate along with finger-shaped cookies. As embarrassing as this is, I was actually attempting to make Healthy Homemade Churros. Yeah, didn’t work out so well. So while these cookies totally failed as churros, they totally succeeded as cookies and I needed to post the recipe for you all. Thankfully, the successful Churros were made after all, phew!
