12 desserts of Christmas: #1 Sugar Cookies

The countdown is on! For the next 12 days I will be sharing my favorite EatReal4Life approved desserts to bring to any party!

Day #1: Sugar Cookies

These delicious sugar cookies contain NO processed sugar. The sweetness these cookies have comes from 100% pure maple syrup and contain less than 3g of natural sugar per cookie. They are also grain free and dairy free!

Ingredients:Makes 20-24 cookies

1 Tbsp of vanilla extract

You know the drill! Start by mixing the maple syrup, egg and coconut oil! Add the dry ingredients and mix until you have a smooth dough. Let chill in the fridge for 1 hour, this will ensure the coconut oil solidifies giving you a solid dough. Roll and cut into desired shapes.

Bake in oven at 325 for 8-10 minutes!
