Guilt Free Christmas Cookies

A few weeks ago I attended such a stunning parenting workshop hosted by Marcia from the Mini Matisse Diaries blog. I learnt so much about kids and sensory issues, being creative and how to ditch sugar. I am hoping to partner with Marcia next year to host one of these workshops because they were just so beneficial.

One of the speakers was Elize, the sugar free brains behind NutriMom. She demonstrated how to make a few sugar-free items including these cookies and icing that was made from cream cheese and honey.

Limiting sugar doesn’t mean limiting flavour.

I made these cookies for the kids a few weeks ago and they were a hit and they work so well if you want to cut out shapes. They are also great for lunch boxes or just to fill up the cookie jar for Christmas and the best part is they sugar free.

    I never thought of using honey in place of sugar in cookies. They look really good.

      Me either! Especially because sugar and honey are different consistencies but these worked so well.
