Best Ever Almond No-Sugar Cookies… Gluten-free, Vegan, and Paleo!

no sugar cookies

Grain-free, gluten-free, egg-free, vegan, vegetarian, Paleo, Primal…. calorie-free? Okay okay lets not go too far, but these are pretty amazingly healthy and do fit well into most diets.  No-sugar cookies are going to be your next family staple!

My boys like to call these “Santa Cookies,” because yes, these are what we made for Santa this past Christmas.  They are perfect for cut outs!  Throw the dough in the refrigerator for an hour, roll out, cut out, bake and decorate! Easy peasy and SO delicious!

Valentines, Saint Patty’s Day, Christmas, themed birthday parties, whatever the event, everyone will love how deliciously chewy and HEALTHY they are.  Not only that, the hint of almond takes me back to Italy where they have the freshest almond cookies ever! Love!

No Sugar Cookies
Meet Cashew flour! Its nutritious and makes for ultra chewy cookies! If you can’t find it, Blanched almond flour also works well.

    1. Hi Sydney! Coconut flour would not work. Coconut flour is very dry and has such a distinct taste. I only use coconut flour to “fluff up” a recipe but never as the main source. Look for blanched almond flour or cashew flour. I know Bobs Red mill has some 🙂 hope that helps!
