Refined Sugar Free Baking
Another benefit of this gluten free sugar cookie recipe is that the cookie is free of refined sugar! By substituting coconut flour for processed white flour, we've eliminated refined sugars from this recipe.
During the holidays the onslaught of sugar can lead to headaches, low energy, bloating and a host of other issues! I prefer to swap out coconut sugar that helps to reduce the symptoms associated with eating too much refined sugar.
