A sweet and refreshing twist on your average holiday cookie! Grain Free and Paleo friendly! Orange Maple glazed sugar cookies are great for sharing!
My Holiday gifts usually consists of food. Let’s face it, I’m frugal but also like to feed people. That’s allowed, right? Well, the Christmas is a perfect example. I have family and friends who like to receive Healthy Bites. Easy, I make a big batch for Holiday Parties, etc. But I also have friends who are more than gluten free. They are grain free or paleo or dairy free, etc. Hey, I’m all of those at times as well. Just depends on the week!
Needless to say, I wanted to make sure those friends could enjoy an allergy friendly treat this Holiday season. Hence these paleo friendly focused orange maple glazed sugar cookies.
To be honest, I winged the recipe. And to be honest, I loved them! But I wanted to make sure they were up to PALEO PAR so I had 2 other honest friends try them before I gifted them.
APPROVED. Not too sweet. Refreshing. And the ones with icing were a bonus!
Oh, and did you see that special ingredient listed?
Yep –> it’s a sparkling fruit drink. Bai Bubbles Blood Orange to be exact. When added in with that maple coconut butter and orange zest, it creates a killer combo! More on that drink later.
Okay Okay, I so i might have healthified these glazed sugar cookies to the max, but trust me, you can make them extra sugary… if you so dare. 😉
Favorite Holiday Cookie? Do you healthify things for friends or yourself?
