Tips for gluten-free or low carb cookies:

Whether you have Celiac Disease, a gluten intolerance, food allergies, or follow a Keto or low-carb lifestyle, that doesn’t mean you should miss out on all the sweet treats during the holiday season. Look for gluten-free versions of your favourite cookie recipes.

Try flourless cookies. If a recipe doesn’t turn out like you’d hoped, use a different flour or sugar substitute.

And remember, just because a recipe doesn’t specifically state that it’s gluten-free, low carb, or Keto, don’t count it out. Check the ingredient list. You may be pleasantly surprised!
