The weekend before Christmas is often packed with holiday preparations, cooking, baking, and gathering with loved ones in the kitchen. I love making holiday cookies this time of year, but since going paleo and eliminating sugar from my diet, I am always on the lookout for healthier alternatives. This year I have come up with a super easy yet delicious holiday paleo sugar cookie. I kept convenience, taste, and of course, health in mind when developing this recipe because let’s be honest, this time of year no one has time to slave in the kitchen. Plus, holiday cookies are supposed to taste good, right? No one wants to bring a cardboard tasting gluten-free cookie to their holiday party.

These sugar cookies will only take about 15 minutes of your time, and they are delicious! They remind me of traditional sugar cookies but healthier.

So, if you find yourself in the kitchen whipping up a dozen different holiday cookies, give this recipe a try and bring them to your holiday party! I promise no one will even know they are refined sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and of course paleo.

Here’s how to make this no-fuss holiday paleo sugar cookie recipe…
