One of the things that kids love about Christmas time, besides the presents, is the sweet treats they get to enjoy, like these sugar cookies!
One of the mums in The Healthy Mummy Community Nicole McClelland had her kids bugging her to make sugar cookies but she couldn’t find a healthy recipe so she made one and then shared it with us!
Cream the butter and sugar together in a larger mixer bowl on medium speed until light in colour and fluffy
Mix the vanilla extract in with the mashed bananas
Add the eggs one at a time, mixing until well combined after each then add the vanilla extract and mashed banana mix until well combined
Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir until the dough comes together and is combined
Seperate into two or more balls and refrigerate for at least 1 hour
Once chilled, preheat oven to 180 degrees and line 2 large baking trays or sheets with parchement or baking paper or silicone baking mats.
Remove one of the dough balls at a time from the refrigerator and roll each portion out onto a piece of parchement paper until 1/4 to 1/2 an inch thick
Cut into shapes with any cookie cutters then re-roll the remaining dough and continue cutting until all the dougn is used. Before placing the cookies (1 inch apart) on the prepared baking trays dip them into the extra coconut sugar
Bake for 5 to 8 minutes in preheated oven, the cookies will get a little golden brown but the centres will look soft
Remove from the oven and allow to cool on baking sheets for 3 to 4 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely
Decorate and serve as you like them - with a drizzle of chocolate, gel icing, sprinkles, coloured coconut or just enjoy them plain.
The above mixture made approximately 150 cookies for Nicole using small cookie cutters
