Yogurt Frosted Sugar Cookies

Gluten Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Refined Sugar Free, and totally amazing.

Ingredients:

For the Cookie:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups almond flour

  • 2 tbsp applesauce

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • pinch sea salt

For the Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup dairy free yogurt

  • 1/2 cup almond butter

  • 4 tsp coconut sugar

Recipe:

  1. Make the frosting first! Combine the ingredients and mix well to create a smooth mixture. Place the frosting in a piping bag with a piping tip, or even just a ziplock bag works too, and place in the fridge for a few hours

  2. Make the cookies: Combine all ingredients for the cookies in one bowl and mix well. This should form a thicker batter, so you might have to use your hands towards the end!

  3. Roll the batter out flat on a non stick baking surface, and use a mason jar lid or a circle cookie cutter to create the sugar cookie shapes

  4. Place the cut outs on a non stick or lined baking dish and use the back of a spoon to gently press the center of each cookie down to create a “bowl” like shape

  5. Bake the cookies for about 15 minutes at 350, or until the edges become golden brown

  6. Let the cookies cool completely before frosting

  7. Optional: add strawberry slices to the tops for a fruity finish

  8. ENJOY
