As much as we’d like to use less sugar in our baked goods, we usually only have three choices: settling for a blander taste, using more fat to add flavor (and calories!) or going for a sugar substitute! But wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have choose any one of these and just fully enjoy a 100% natural, yet yummy sugar-free dessert? Well, guess what: these Sugar-Free Almond Cookies are all that!
With just 3 ingredients on the list, the Sugar-Free Almond Cookies are seriously easy to make! (Just how a busy-lazy person like me likes it! 🙂 Making them was a blissful 5-minute prep process that I was able to complete when my boys were taking their showers… And as I REALLY wanted to get to taking MY shower ASAP so that I could have some me-time before rolling off for my 8-hour beauty sleep! 🙂 So basically all I had to do was throw all the ingredients in the food processor, give it a few spins, scoop the cookies out – et viola! 15 minutes in the oven and a healthy breakfast for me, a yummy snack for the boys and the any-time dessert for the whole family was DONE!
But the best part though is that the Sugar-Free Almond Cookies are indeed sugar-free (no added sugar OR sweeteners!), all-natural and low-calorie at the same time!
The secret? The bananas! Gee, you probably already know how much I like using bananas in my desserts, right? Well, that’s partially because I ALWAYS have leftover overripe bananas in my kitchen!
But it’s also because the bananas are so sweet and gooey – they make perfect all-natural sugar-substitute for all sorts of baking needs! I’ve already actually came up with a few banana-based sugar-free, yet sweet and all-natural treats such as The Banana Marshmallow Mousse. Making it and fully enjoying it made me think that bananas can work as a sugar substitute pretty well!
But… I haven’t made any sugar-free cookies just yet! Until now! So what do you say? I say – let’s get to the details of the recipe, because I simply LOVED the taste of these Sugar-Free Almond Cookies so much – I’m sure I’ll be making more very soon again! 🙂
