My boys love these Paleo Sugar Cookies because they’re delicious and so fun to make. I love them because they’re quick and easy to throw together and full of healthy low-carb ingredients. They’re adorable as a heart cookie, but you can make them into a variety of shapes depending on the holiday you’re celebrating.
These Paleo Sugar Cookies are gluten-free, dairy-free, and do not use refined sugar. This low-carb recipe for Paleo Valentine’s Day cookies has only 7 ingredients total. All you need to make it is almond flour, coconut oil, honey, nutmeg, orange zest, salt, and baking soda.
For one Valentine’s day, when he was 9 years old, my older son gave out these Paleo Sugar Cookies instead of paper valentines. Because the children in his class had so many different food allergies, these cookie valentines were perfect. Even without ingredients such as gluten, sugar, and dairy, my son told me that the children in his class said they were incredible!
We frost these healthy cookies with my White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting which makes them even more adorable and delicious! This fantastic frosting recipe is super easy to make and has only 5 ingredients.
We make Paleo Sugar Cookies into hearts for Valentine’s Day and at Christmas, we use other fun shapes such as snowmen and snowflakes. Rolling out cookie dough and cutting out cookies is a fun project the boys and I love doing together!
Here are some of my other healthy cookie recipes for you. All of them are far lower in carbs than their sugar-laden, wheat-filled counterparts!
