Healthy Soft Sugar Cookies

Servings: 14 cookies
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 12 mins

These Healthy Soft Sugar Cookies are secretly guilt-free! You'd never know they're sugar free, gluten free, whole grain, eggless, dairy free, and vegan.

Ingredients

  • 180g 1½ cups Oat Flour
  • 96g ½ cup Granulated Erythritol (or dry sweetener of choice)
  • 1 tsp Double-Acting Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 112g (½ cup) Coconut Oil (soft)
  • ¼ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (room temperature)
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tsp Natural Butter Flavor
  • 1 tsp Liquid Stevia Extract
  • 30 drops Almond Extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the oat flour, erythritol, baking powder and salt.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla extract, butter flavor, stevia extract and almond extract.
  • Dump the dry ingredients over the wet ingredients and fold together.  Fold until the mixture can form into a dough ball (it will look sticky at first, but then the oat flour will absorb the liquid and turn into a play-doh/cookie dough texture).
  • Use a medium cookie scoop to portion out the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet.  Roll the dough portions into balls, then use your fingers to press them into patties.  Form them just a tiny bit thicker and smaller than you prefer your cookies -- they spread out a little.  Bake for ~12-14 minutes, or until baked through (when you tap the center of the cookie, it should be soft, but shouldn't leave a permanent fingerprint indentation).
  • Slide the parchment paper off the cookie sheet and let the cookies cool completely.  Serve immediately, or transfer them to a slider freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to one month.  For a "freshly baked" cookie straight from the freezer, place a cookie on a plate and microwave for ~20 seconds!
