Satisfy your perpetual sweet tooth with these 17 healthy cookies that are so delicious and designed to balance your blood sugar! Every cookie recipe below is either gluten free or grain free, vegan or dairy free, and ~always~ refined sugar free. From healthy almond flour cookies to vegan protein cookies, you’ll find your new favorite cookie recipe for low-key Friday nights in and for showing off at your next celebration.

Let me just start by saying, I get you. Cookies are one of the best snacks to nosh on at all times of day. I often eat them for breakfast (#16 is the best breakfast cookie), and I sometimes don’t even bake them (enter my Cookies and Cream Healthy Cookie Dough and my Sugar Cookie Dough Bites). But there’s a method to my madness. All these cookies I’m mainlining are actually nutritious ingredients disguised as our favorite dessert. Call it wizardry, call it too good to be true. I just call it delicious.

Inside each cookie recipe post, you’ll find out exactly what makes each one so healthy! Oh, and if you’re wondering how a cookie can balance your blood sugar and also aid in things like weight loss, energy, hormone balance, and sleep, put on my podcast episode with the Glucose Goddess while you’re baking! You’ll feel SO good about all the healthy dessert you’re about to eat.
