Healthy Baking That Actually Tastes Good: 10 Sugarless, Flourless Cookie Recipes

By  | 

If you're trying to follow a sugar-free diet and avoid refined carbohydrates, the holidays are a perilous time of year: Cookie exchanges and holiday parties are a huge test of willpower, and most of us will end up losing to a good cookie or two before the year's end. But it's possible to bake without sugar and flour (really), and the results don't have to totally suck: Thanks to agave nectar, coconut, spelt, oats, and fruit sugars, you can still make holiday treats that don't rely on white sugar and processed flour to taste good.
