I love me a good sugar cookie. I mean who doesn't? It is a universally loved food item by kids and adults. Baking a good sugar cookie is also relatively simple. No rocket science involved. There lay the challenge of coming up with a healthy cookie recipe which rivalled the sugar cookie in terms of texture, taste and ease.

I did try to eliminate butter but it just turned out too hard and chalky. Then I thought to myself that adding just a little bit of butter while making sure it was still low calorie definitely was worth a try.

These turned out amazing. Their texture was even better than a regular sugar cookie because they came out of the oven ultra chewy. Best part about them - just 5 ingredients! Raw honey eliminated the need for any sugar. Try to use the most natural kind that you can find. You won't regret it.

My kids loved them and the husband who is gluten intolerant literally inhaled them! Just about managed to save a couple so that I could take pictures for the blog. This is a great recipe to use for some Christmas cookies. Just cut them out with Christmas themed cookie cutters and be prepared to wow everyone during the festive season!
