Gluten free, low carb, keto, sugar cookies out of the oven


The search for the perfect cookie continues. You’ve seen my Lower Carb, Lower Glycemic, Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies and Better Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Lower Carb, Lower Glycemic, Gluten-Free. And now sugar cookies!

I was asked to make a sugar cookie and here it is. Delicious, nutritious, gluten free, really low carb which is great for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics, those on keto diets, and for everyone who is looking to intelligently reduce their sugar intake!

Further, these are the perfect vehicle for my butterscotch icing, another frosting I am working on, or anything else you’d like to top with.

This recipe makes about 32 sugar cookies and takes about a half hour to make.



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then mix all the ingredients in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). I use a small spoon to place dollops of the dough on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes until brown on the edges (or as you like) then take out of the oven. Place the cookies on a cooling rack for a few minutes and enjoy these healthy sugar cookies!

Ethan Explains Sugar Lies

We do love our sugar. It’s in everything on the grocery store shelf now. Time to dial that back!

Now we find out that the sugar industry paid two Harvard researchers back in the 1960s. These payments caused them to change their findings from sugar causes cardiovascular disease to fat causes cardiovascular disease.

That’s right! Researchers at the UCSF School of Medicine published their findings yesterday in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). We’ve been lied to for decades harming our health and likely killing many Americans.

It’s time to cut way back on your sugar consumption. Follow some of my recipes for a healthy way to make delicious sweets and start reading labels looking out for sugar, corn sugar, corn syrup, and high fructose corn syrup. There is no need to completely eliminate sugar, but there is a definite need to cut way back. Now.
