Sugar-Free Sugar Cookies

Sugar-Free Sugar Cookies… that almost sounds like a joke! However, if you are trying to be healthier, but still want an easy dessert, then this recipe is the one for you. They take only 10 minutes to bake and only need 3 ingredients – it doesn’t get easier than that. For more easy, tasty, and health-conscious recipes, explore our post on recipe HERE.

Does Sugar-Free Always Mean Healthier?

If you said yes, you may be wrong. In a lot of cases, sugar is substituted with alternatives that are just as bad or worse for you. Some of those artificial alternatives are: aspartame, sucralose, and acesulfame K. You can find those in a lot of beverages and desserts that are listed as ‘sugar-free’. Natural Sweeteners, which are better than refined and artificial sweeteners, are: honey, molasses, maple syrup, and fruit juices & nectars.

“… refined, concentrated sugar consumed in large amounts rapidly increases blood glucose and insulin levels, increases triglycerides, inflammatory mediators and oxygen radicals, and with them, the risk for diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other chronic illnesses,” – Dr. Ludwig

Best Sugar Substitute Options

The following are all ones I have used and like:

Monk Fruit Sweetener

Granulated Stevia

Coconut Sugar

Stevia, Monk Fruit, Allulose, Erythritol Blend

Any of the sugar substitiutes listed above are great options and will work for these Sugar-Free Sugar Cookies. You can also find one of your own here!

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
