After a long and a bit tiring festive season at the restaurant, with seasonal dishes, celebrations, hosting many guests now it is time for my holiday. I flew to Istanbul last week after new years celebration. For my little nephews birthday. It has been 3 years every 4th of January I am here for being with him and with my best friend/ best person in the world / my sister. My sister and my brother-in-law prepared a fantastic birthday for him. He was full of joy all day, even all week. All family was there to celebrate. I am so happy being able to spend some time with my family and especially with this little one. Creating these cute sugar-free cookies and making them together with him feels just so awesome 🙂
I planned the entire scenario when I was in Dubai. I knew he would love cookies and enjoy baking them together but I was not expecting that reaction. As soon as I asked him if he would like to make cookies he jumped with excitement and put that big smile on my face 🙂 We had so much fun together even though It was a bit more difficult than I imagined with a two years old 🙂 We made mess and made yummy sugar-free cookies so he could eat.
These sugar-free cookies will be great for your kids as well as yourself. Super easy to make and such fun activity with your little ones :)You may also check my Lemongrass & Kefir Lime Cookies recipe for more fun.
He picked cars, I picked some snow flakes, then my sister brought some animal cutter. You go pick anything you would enjoy, even hand shaped ones are great too…
Whole Wheat Sugar-free Cookies with Molasses & Cinnamon
- 2 Cups Whole wheat flour
- 1 Cup Butter Small cubes
- 1.5 tsp Cinnamon powder
- 0.5 Cup Molasses
- Ice cubes If needed
Add small butter cubes to the flour in a mixing bowl. Mix until you have crumble like texture.
Add cinnamon and molasses and knead the dough about 5 minutes until well combined.
Avoid over kneading. Otherwise it may become very sort and sticky as the butter melts.
Cover the dough with cling film and keep it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to rest and set before rolling.
Well, my cuteness was not patient for that so we skipped resting stage but it is highly recommended as it's very difficult to roll and cut the cookies when it's warm and all sticky. Still fun 🙂
Roll the dough 0,5-0,75 cm thick and cut out cookies with cookie cutters or hand shape your cookies.
Place them on a baking tray with baking paper.
Cook in 180 °C (360°F) preheated oven for 15-20 minutes.
