Let’s talk for a minute about classics. No, I’m not talking about MKTO’s hit song, despite the fact that it’s refusing to leave my mind as I write this post. What I’m (trying) to talk about, is dishes, or foods in general, that bring you back to your roots. Foods that just bring you a little bit of mental peace. Not necessarily “comfort foods,” but foods that give you comfort.
For me, cookies in general fill the classic category, but specific FLAVORS of cookies especially do it for me. A few weeks ago I introduced these Vegan Classic Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies to the blog, and today I’m happy to bring these Healthy Vegan Sugar Cookies to the collection of classics!
But seriously, have you MET a person that doesn’t like a sugar cookie?! I know I haven’t! These babies are so easy to whip up, and they’re a huge crowd pleaser.
I love these healthy sugar cookies because they’re:
- 100% whole grain
- Naturally sweetened
- Lower in fat
- Perfectly ~vanilla~
- Easy to make
Plus, these sugar cookies are super customizable in terms of toppings. You could go with a classic pinch of sugar on the very top, a sprinkle of SPRINKLES, or get extra fancy and whip up some frosting.
If you’re looking for easy store bought frosting that just-so-happens to be vegan, check out the brands Betty Crocker (even their cream cheese flavor is vegan!), Duncan Hines (most of their Home Style flavors are vegan, but be sure to check the label), and Wholesome (which is an organic brand).
Overall, these cookies are the perfect combo of chewy, caky, and oh-so-pillowy (just like a sugar cookie should be)! I highly recommend that you give this healthy recipe a chance. I promise, it’ll fill that classic craving you didn’t even know you needed till now.
If you end up making this I’d love to see your recreations or hear how it went in the comments below! Be sure to tag me on Instagram @cookwithcourt and #cookwithcourt to share!
