Outrageously Clean Sugar Cookies

sugarcookies

Okay, so I don't mean to brag or anything, but these sugar cookies might be the most delicious cookies that I have ever tasted. The cookies are 100% vegan, oil-free and refined sugar-free, can you say yes!!?! Obviously, just because they are healthy (ish) you shouldn't eat the entire batch, but it is important to treat yourself! In fact, allowing yourself to eat sweets in moderation actually helps you to make healthy eating decisions in the long run. So grab yourself a big glass of almond milk and enjoy a cookie or two!
